Luis Suárez has apologised to Branislav Ivanovic after biting the Chelsea defender during Liverpool's 2-2 draw at Anfield on Sunday afternoon.

Suárez used his Twitter account to say sorry for the incident, which came before the striker scored a dramatic equaliser seven minutes into stoppage time.

"I'm sad for what happened this afternoon, I apologize Ivanovic and all football world for my inexcusable behaviour. I'm so sorry about it!!" Suarez wrote.

Suarez looks set to face a Football Association investigation into the incident, which saw the Uruguay international clash with the centre-back in the penalty area before sinking his teeth into his opponent's arm.

The Professional Footballers' Association chief executive, Gordon Taylor, was disappointed that Suárez's actions spoilt a good game of football. While Taylor was coy over whether he would support a punishment, he expressed his disgust with the Liverpool forward.

"It was not good to see to say the least. It was unacceptable," he said on Sky Sports News. "His reputation for controversy continues to increase when he can be such a good player, one of the world's best, so it is a real dilemma now.

"It's uncalled for, it's not good, it's depressing, it's such a shame for a player who's a really good footballer but this is not the first time that such things have happened. I know it's a really difficult one for Liverpool and the FA are going to have to deal with it."
