Newcastle: the troubles continue for Sandro Tonali!


By: Manu Tournoux

Deprived of football since last fall and his ten-month suspension for being accused of having made sports bets, Sandro Tonali (23) is keeping busy as best he can. But today, the Italian player is experiencing a new setback in the affair. The English Football Association (FA) has just published a press release incriminating him again. The Newcastle midfielder is said to have bet 50 times on football matches between August 12 and October 12, 2023.

“Sandro Tonali has been charged with misconduct in relation to alleged breaches of FA betting rules. The Newcastle United midfielder allegedly broke FA Rule E8 50 times by placing bets on football matches between August 12, 2023 and October 12, 2023. Sandro Tonali has until April 5, 2024 to respond », indicates the press release published by the governing body of English football. A new hard blow for the Transalpine region.

Another hard blow coming for Newcastle?

Indeed, these new revelations from the investigation could increase his suspension. As since the beginning of the investigation, Sandro Tonali intends to comply with the FA's questions. For its part, Newcastle, which recruited Tonali last summer for €70 million and who was only able to play him eight times in the Premier League, reacted officially, without saying too much either.

“Newcastle United acknowledges that Sandro Tonali has been accused of misconduct over alleged breaches of FA betting rules. Sandro continues to fully comply with relevant investigations and he retains the full support of the club. Due to this ongoing process, Sandro and Newcastle United are unable to make further comment at this time.”. To be continued.
