English FA hands Newcastle United's Tonali suspended two-month ban

English FA hands Newcastle United's Tonali suspended two-mon

Newcastle and Italy midfielder Sandro Tonali has been handed 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.

The star likened to some of the finest midfield players of the game is already serving a 10-month ban running until August for offences during his time in Italy.

Tonali was charged by the FA [England] in March and admitted placing between 40 and 50 football bets after joining Newcastle from AC Milan last July, 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)."

Newcastle said Tonali 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".

An independent regulatory commission heard the process has had a "profound effect" on the midfielder and "is something he does not want to experience again".

The independent commission, in summarising the evidence, said the FA contended it was "highly unlikely" that it "would have ever become aware of Tonali’s misconduct but for his admissions".
