LONDON (AP) - Liverpool forward Luis Suarez accepted a violent conduct charge from the English Football Association after he bit an opponent.
The FA wants Suarez suspended for more than the standard three matches for sinking his teeth into an arm of Chelsea defender Bransilav Ivanovic during a Premier League match on Sunday.
Suarez's punishment will be decided Wednesday, the FA said.
He apologized to Ivanovic after the match, received a fine from Liverpool and was rebuked by the government on Monday.
It's not Suarez's first offense for biting an opponent. In November 2010, he was banned for seven matches for biting a PSV Eindhoven player in the Dutch league, earning the nickname ``Cannibal of Ajax.''
