Sandro Tonali: Newcastle player gets suspended two-month FA betting ban

2 May 2024 0 By Total Football News

Newcastle midfielder Sandro Tonali has been given a suspended two-month ban after admitting to breaches of Football Association betting rules.

The Italian, 23, will not serve the ban if he does not commit further breaches before the end of next season.

He is already serving a 10-month ban issued in October 2023 for offences during his time in Italy.

Tonali was charged by the FA in March and admitted placing between 40 and 50 football bets after joining Newcastle, including four on the Magpies’ results.

The FA said the money placed on the bets by Tonali, who has also been fined £20,000, would have been “well in excess of 100,000 euros” (£85,600).
