The former Liverpool forward Daniel Sturridge has been sentenced to a fine and to a six-week suspension for illegal bets, announced this Thursday the English Football Federation (FA).
The striker, 26 times international with England, is thus suspended from all practice of football for six weeks, plus four conditional in case of recidivism, in addition to having to pay a fine of 75,000 pounds (83,500 euros).
The player, 29, asked his brother to bet on his eventual transfer to Sevilla in January 2018, an independent regulatory commission affirms, to which the federation went. Finally, Sturridge was transferred to West Bromwich on January 28, 2018, after the failure of negotiations with Sevilla.
Nine of the eleven objects of accusation faced by the English striker were rejected. Sturridge may return on July 31, just before the season begins in England.
The English international left Liverpool, winner of the last Champions, at the end of June, free of contract. Last season he only scored two goals in the Premier with the 'reds'.
