Bournemouth Midfielder, Jefferson Lerma Charged With Violent Conduct for Biting Sheffield Player (Updated: 2 years ago)


Bournemouth midfielder, Jefferson Lerma has been charged for violent conduct by the FA, over an alleged bite on an opponent during a match with Sheffield Wednesday on November 3.

The Colombian footballer, 26, is alleged to have bitten an opponent in the 83rd minute of the Sky Bet Championship match at Hillsborough.

A statement released by the FA read: “AFC Bournemouth’s Jefferson Lerma has been charged with a breach of FA Rule E3.

“It is alleged that the midfielder committed an act of violent conduct by biting a Sheffield Wednesday FC player during the 83rd minute of an EFL Championship game on Tuesday 3 November 2020.

“Jefferson Lerma has until Thursday 24 December 2020 to provide a response.”

Bournemouth say Lerma “strenuously denies the allegation” and has “cooperated fully with the FA’s initial investigations into the alleged incident”.

“He will request a hearing over the charge,” read a club statement.

“AFC Bournemouth fully support Jefferson and will continue to do so throughout the process.”

Colombia international Lerma faces the prospect of a lengthy suspension if the charge is upheld.

Back in 2013, former Liverpool forward Luis Suarez was handed a 10-game ban after biting Chelsea’s Branislav Ivanovic in a match.

Bradley Johnson was banned for four games after biting Joe Allen in a match between Derby County and Stoke in 2018, while Burton Albion goalkeeper Kieran O’Hara was banned for six games for biting an opponent earlier this year.
