Friday, March 14, 2014

LONDON - An English lower-league player has been banned for 10 matches by the English Football Association following allegations that he bit an opponent during a game.

Joss Labadie, who plays for fourth-tier team Torquay, was charged by the FA with violent conduct following a match against Chesterfield on Feb. 15.

The FA says in a statement released on Wednesday that Labadie was found to be guilty of the charge at a hearing of an independent panel. Labadie denied the charge.

Torquay says in a statement that the club is considering its options before deciding to appeal.

Liverpool striker Luis Suarez was banned by the FA for 10 matches in April last year for biting Chelsea defender Branislav Ivanovic during a Premier League game.
