LONDON – Luis Suarez has been fined by Liverpool for biting an opponent, and has been offered anger management counseling by England's soccer union.
The Uruguay striker bit Chelsea defender Branislav Ivanovic's arm during Sunday's Premier League match before scoring a late goal to earn a 2-2 tie.
Suarez wrote Monday on Twitter that "for my unacceptable behavior yesterday the club has fined me today."
Suarez says he wants the undisclosed sum to be donated to families affected by the 1989 Hillsborough Stadium disaster, which killed 96 Liverpool fans.
Suarez, who could still face a long ban from the Football Association, was suspended for seven matches in 2010 while playing for Ajax after biting a player.
The Professional Footballers' Association says Suarez will be offered anger management counselors.
