London: Luis Suarez has been fined by Liverpool for biting an opponent, and has been offered anger management counseling by England's footballers' union.

The Uruguay striker dug his teeth into Chelsea defender Branislav Ivanovic's arm during Sunday's Premier League match before netting a last-gasp equalizer to clinch a 2-2 draw.

Suarez announced Monday on Twitter that "for my unacceptable behavior yesterday the club has fined me today."

The Uruguay striker dug his teeth into Branislav Ivanovic's arm during Premier League match before netting a last-gasp equalizer to clinch a 2-2 draw.

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.

Now the Professional Footballers' Association says Suarez will be offered the services of anger management counselors.
