A football player's bite is prompting calls to take action against Ajax striker Luis Suarez. The Dutch Football Federation proposed a seven-match ban for Suarez for attacking PSV Eindhoven midfielder Otman Bakkal on Wednesday. The case will be discussed at a disciplinary hearing if the club does not take further action on its own.

It all began when Ajax's Rasmus Lindgren was sent off in the last minutes of the PSV Eindhoven draw against Ajax. Players from both sides gathered near the midfield line, and that's when Suarez appeared to attack PSV's Bakkal. Bakkal reacted to Suarez's move and tried to show the referee what happened. Match officials did not see the incident and Suarez escaped immediate punishment. But after Ajax club officials took a look at the video evidence, they took action. Ajax imposed a two match ban on Suarez and fined the Uruguayan forward. Now the Dutch F-A looks set to impose a further five match ban for the man now dubbed by the press as "the Cannibal of Ajax".
