Liverpool managing director Ian Ayre will stay on Merseyside this week.

Ayre has cancelled a trip to Australia to deal with the fallout from Luis Suarez's biting incident with Chelsea defender Branislav Ivanovic.

In a statement, he said: "Luis has made an unreserved apology for his actions today.

"His behaviour is not befitting of any player wearing a Liverpool shirt and Luis is aware that he has let himself and everyone associated with the club down. We will deal with the matter internally and await any action from the FA."
