Liverpool and Uruguay striker Luis Suarez has been banned for nine games, as well as all football for four months, after biting Italy defender Giorgio Chiellini, the Guardian has reported.

FIFA has acted after Suarez’s third biting incident, having previously been banned for seven games for an incident with Otman Bakkal when an Ajax player and 10 games for biting Chelsea’s Branislav Ivanovic in April 2013.

Suarez has been banned from entering any stadium in which football is played and all football activity for the next four months, which rules him out for his club as well as his country. The suspension would, pending appeal, see Suarez out of action until October. He has also been fined £65,000.

The 27-year-old scored 31 goals in 37 games for the Reds last season, helping Brendan Rodgers’ side to second in the Premier League despite missing the start of the season due to his suspension for biting Ivanovic.

Suarez underwent knee surgery at the end of the season and recovered in time to feature against England at the World Cup, scoring twice to effectively knock out the Three Lions. The game in which the biting incident occurred ended in a 1-0 win for Uruguay, knocking Italy out of the tournament.
