Sandro Tonali and several other Italian players are involved in illegal betting. For Nicolo Fagioli, one of the accused, the sentence has been passed: 7 months suspension. Newcastle midfielder Fagioli is expected to receive a more severe suspension in the near future.
Sandro Tonali was found guilty of illegal betting. He admitted it himself through his agent Giuseppe Riso. “Sandro is playing an important game against gambling addiction. He will win this one too. I would like to thank Newcastle, who have always stood by Sandro. He is shocked, shaken and sad,” he said. One decision already taken is that the former AC Milan player should undergo therapy to treat his addiction. But on top of that, he will probably have to serve a 12-month suspension.
