Tonali betting breaches lead to suspended ban

Home » Tonali betting breaches lead to suspended ban

Premier League footballer Sandro Tonali has been handed a two-month suspended ban for breaching Football Association betting rules.

As reported by Reuters, the ban, handed down by an independent Regulatory Commission, follows his FA charge in March for 50 rule breaches relating to bets on matches between August and April 2023.

Tonali had previously been banned for 10 months by the Italian Football Federation, which will see him miss his country’s Euro 2024 campaign this summer.

However, Newcastle confirmed in a statement that Tonali will not serve any part of the new two-month ban if he does not commit any further breaches of betting rules.

“The banning period is fully suspended for the duration of the 2024-25 season, meaning he will be available to return to competitive football upon the conclusion of an existing 10-month sanction imposed by the Italian Football Federation on October 27, 2023,” the club said.

“Sandro made full admissions as to his betting activity, and did so in circumstances where there was no other evidence to support misconduct proceedings.

“As acknowledged by the FA in the independent Regulatory Commission’s written reasons, the level of assistance Sandro has provided by self-referring and fully cooperating with a subsequent investigation is extraordinary and unprecedented.

“Sandro is continuing to follow a therapeutic plan and educational programme with the club’s full support and will continue to train with his team-mates.”
