Torquay’s Joss Labadie has been banned for 10 games by the Football Association for biting an opponent, BBC Sport has reported.

Labadie was accused of biting by Chesterfield’s Ollie Banks on Twitter and despite the club not making an official complaint, the FA have handed down the sentence. Labadie will be banned for the same length of time as Liverpool’s Luis Suarez, who bit Chelsea’s Branislav Ivanovic in 2013.


The 23-year-old has also been fined £2,000, although speaking to BBC radio last week the Torquay manager Chris Hargreaves insisted Labadie had not done anything wrong.


“It's a denial from the club and from myself of any wrongdoing,” Hargreaves said. “From what I've seen, I don't know how they can get to that conclusion.”


Chesterfield won the game 3-1 while Torquay recorded a 2-1 win over Rochdale on Tuesday. Labadie played and scored the winning goal for the Gulls, but they remain bottom of League Two, seven points from safety.


Labadie began his career at West Bromwich Albion and later played for Shrewsbury, Cheltenham and Tranmere, on loan, making his move to Birkenhead permanent. Torquay signed Labadie from Notts County on a permanent deal in January having previously been on loan at the club.
