A local disciplinary commission banned the veteran Tijuana playmaker after television images showed he bit Monterrey midfielder Jesus Zavala on the left shoulder during a game on Saturday, reports Xinhua.
Tijuana officials said on Tuesday the club also punished Arango for his actions, but they did not specify on the punishment.
The 34-year-old Arango, who played for Mallorca in Spain and Borussia Moenchengladbach in Germany, represented Venezuela in five Copa America tournaments.
