Is Suarez's 10-game ban too long?

BBC Sport analyses the 10-game ban given to Liverpool striker Luis Suarez for biting Chelsea defender Branislav Ivanovic.

The Uruguay international has until 12:00 BST on Friday 26 April to appeal, with Reds managing director Ian Ayre saying "the club and player are shocked and disappointed" by the ban.

Suarez was banned for seven games whilst playing for Ajax Amsterdam in 2011 for biting an opponent and served an eight-game ban last season for racially abusing Manchester United's Patrice Evra.
