Liverpool have fined Luis Suarez for biting Chelsea defender Branislav Ivanovic during Sunday's match at Anfield, but have said the Uruguayan forward still has a future at the club.

In an incident not seen by referee Kevin Friend at the time, the 26 year old bit Ivanovic whilst the two tussled in the box. Suarez went on to score the equalising goal for Liverpool in the 96th minute of the game.

Suarez has since apologised for his actions and spoken with the Serbian international. The player has been offered anger management therapy by the Professional Footballer's Association, with Liverpool fining Suarez an undisclosed amount.

Despite this fine, managing director Ian Ayre has said that the incident will not affect Suarez's future at Anfield, stressing that he was a very important player to the club.

Suarez was previously banned for biting, serving a seven match suspension in 2010 when as an Ajax player he bit PSV Eindhoven midfielder Otman Bakkal. Since moving to Liverpool in 2011 he has been involved in various controversial incidents, most notably when he was banned for eight games and fined £40,000 for racially abusing Manchester United defender Patrice Evra.
