London: The English Football Association says Liverpool striker Luis Suarez has not appealed his 10-match ban for biting an opponent during a Premier League game.

Suarez's suspension begins immediately, meaning he will miss the last four games of this season and the first six of the next.

The Uruguay international was handed one of English football's harshest penalties for on-the-field misbehavior for biting Branislav Ivanovic's arm during Liverpool's 2-2 draw with Chelsea on Sunday.
