Men's Football FA appealing Daniel Sturridge's two-week suspension

FORMER Liverpool striker Daniel Sturridge has been handed a two-week suspension from football and a £75,000 fine for breaching betting regulations, the Football Association has announced.

An independent regulatory commission found that Sturridge, capped 26 times by England, had given his brother inside information on a possible move to Sevilla during the January 2018 transfer window.

However, nine of the 11 charges were dismissed against Sturridge, who is free to resume his career on July 31 as four weeks of a six-week ban are suspended.

The FA are appealing the regulatory commission’s findings as well as the sanctions handed down to the former Manchester City and Chelsea forward, believing them to be too lenient.
