Ex-Liverpool star, Daniel Sturridge banned from football for 4 months after breaking betting rules
Former Liverpool and Chelsea winger Daniel Sturridge has been banned from playing football for the next four months after been found guilty of breaking the betting rules.
The problem actually started for the Englishman in July 2018 according to the report on Sky Sport when he told one of his brothers to bet on his possible move to Spanish side Sevilla.
But the English FA made some investigation and came out with a judgement of banning the player for two weeks in June 2019 with a fine of 75,000 pounds.
And eight months after Sturridge was handed a two weeks ban from football, the FA came together again to review the punishment and discovered that it was too lenient.
According to the report which was also cited on UK Sun, another two offenses were found against Daniel Sturridge which is against the football rules and regulations.
This, however, prompted the English FA to ban Daniel Sturridge for four months which means he will not be able to play for any other club this season.
On Monday, Daniel Sturridge terminated his contract at Turkish club Trabzonspor despite signing three-year contract with the side.
So far this season, Daniel Sturridge has played 13 games for Trabzonspor and has scored seven goals before his departure.
The club also took to their official social media account to wish the former Manchester City star the best of luck in future.
