Former Liverpool and Chelsea skipper Daniel Sturridge has been given a worldwide football ban until June and concomitantly fined £150,000 after being found guilty of breaching the FA's gambling regulations.




The former Liverpool striker, was initially handed a two weeks ban, a judgment that was presumed to be to lenient after a regulatory commission ruled that he had provided his brother with "inside information" and instructed him to bet on his possible transfer to Sevilla in January 2018.


The statement read:

"Daniel Sturridge has been suspended from all football and football-related activity from today until the end of 17 June 2020," said an FA statement on Monday.

"Following an appeal by the FA of the previous findings of the independent regulatory commission in this case, an independent appeal board has found that the regulatory commission misapplied the FA's rules in relation to the use of inside information and made findings of fact which could not be sustained.


"As a result, the appeal board has found proven two further charges which were originally dismissed. Other factual findings of the regulatory commission were left undisturbed.

"In relation to the sanction, the appeal board agreed with the FA that the penalty originally imposed on Mr Sturridge was unduly lenient and therefore increased his effective playing ban from two weeks to four months. The appeal board also doubled the fine to £150,000.

"FIFA has confirmed that the suspension will be of worldwide effect."

In the meantime, his club has bid him goodbye through a tweet from their twitter handle.
