Video: Juan Arango replicates Luis Suarez's act of biting opponent

Juan Arango of Club Tijuana

Venezuela and Club Tijuana star Juan Arango was caught by videos biting the shoulder of opponent Jesus Zavela in the tense closing stages of a 3-4 defeat to Monterrey in a match in the Mexican League this week – conjuring up memories of the infamous Luis Suarez incidents.

Arango, who scored a goal earlier in the match, was not booked by the referee but could face a heavy retrospective ban – as suggested by the way Uruguayan Luis Suarez’s biting incidents were dealt with by FIFA. His most recent bite on Giergio Chiellini in the World Cup was punished with a four-month ban, a period during which he was disallowed from even training with his teammates.

The 34-year-old Arango has 121 international caps for Venezuela, and has spent five seasons each at Real Mallorca in Spain and Borussia Monchengladbach in Germany.
