Sandro Tonali Hit With Fresh Betting Charged By FA

Tonali is already serving a 10-month ban for breaching betting rules while playing for AC Milan.

The Italy international joined the Magpies from AC Milan for £55m last summer before being hit with the initial ban.

Tonali is already set to miss the rest of this season as well as the upcoming European Championships.

It is alleged that these fresh charges relate to bets Tonali placed while registered as a Newcastle player.

An FA statement on Thursday read: “Sandro Tonali has been charged with misconduct in relation to alleged breaches of The FA’s Betting Rules.

“It’s alleged that the Newcastle United midfielder breached FA Rule E8 50 times by placing bets on football matches between 12 August 2023 and 12 October 2023.

“Sandro Tonali has until 5 April 2024 to respond.”

In response to the FA charge, Newcastle stated: “Newcastle United acknowledges a misconduct charge received by Sandro Tonali in respect of alleged breaches of FA Betting Rules.

“Sandro continues to fully comply with relevant investigations and he retains the club’s full support.

“Due to this ongoing process, Sandro and Newcastle United are unable to offer further comment at this time.”
