Liverpool’s Luis Suarez apologizes for biting Chelsea’s Branislav Ivanovic

Liverpool striker Luis Suarez has apologized for his rather harsh reaction after biting Chelsea's Branislav Ivanovic. Ivonovic appeared to have done very little to provoke Surez who proceeded to bite the Chelsea player

The incident unfolded in the second half of Liverpool's 2-2 draw against Chelsea at Anfield on Sunday. Suarez, the English Premier League's top scorer, wrestled with the Chelsea defender Ivanovic and then clearly sank his teeth into the Serbian's arm.
Suarez who is no stranger to biting other players, having previously picked up a seven game ban while at Dutch giants Ajax for biting the neck of PSV Eindhoven midfielder Otman Bakkal in November 2010 earned a yellow card that gave Chelsea a penalty — and a 2-1 lead; he bit Ivanovic; and then scored the equalizer on what amounted to the final touch of the game. 

In an earlier statement, Suarez apologized for his actions, he said: "I apologise to my manager and everyone at Liverpool for letting them down."
The incident was not seen by referee Kevin Friend, who shrugged off Ivanovic's angry protestations.
Suarez later apologized on his Twitter account -- 

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