Ajax captain Luis Suarez gets seven-game ban for biting
Suarez sent off for handling on the line
Ajax captain Luis Suarez has accepted a seven-match ban for biting PSV Eindhoven midfielder Otman Bakkal's shoulder in Saturday's 0-0 league draw.
His club, who have unilaterally fined and banned the Uruguayan for two games, will not appeal against the punishment.
Suarez will be sidelined domestically until 4 February next year, but remains eligible for European competition.
The striker's three goals in the 2010 World Cup were overshadowed by his red card in the quarter-final with Ghana.
The 23-year-old's deliberate handball on the line in the dying seconds of the game in Johannesburg - which earned him his dismissal - prevented a certain goal and Asamoah Gyan missed the resulting penalty.
Uruguay subsequently went through on penalties before being beaten in the semi-final by the Netherlands - a game Suarez missed through suspension.
