Daniel Sturridge suspended: fines for illegal betting!

Daniel Sturridge suspended: fines for illegal betting!

Daniel Sturridge is a household name in the football world. The fans of the former Liverpool FC Kickers are all the more shocked. Now he is not allowed to play for 6 weeks due to illegal betting and has to pay a total of 84,000 euros! But what exactly happened there? Why should the 29-year-old professional striker suffer so much, not to mention the threat to his previously good reputation?

With the help of his brother and other accomplices, Sturridge has apparently bet on his own transfer and this is of course illegal, because after all he is the only one who knows exactly what is going on in his own career and, of course, could not lose. But what exactly is there about the allegations? The FA (English Football Association) got wind of it and reported the kicker in November 2018. Now the association even wants to move the player off the field for a full 6 months. More information about the incident follows in the body of the article.

Sturridge bets on his own transfer

Daniel Sturridge is said to have violated the betting guidelines. According to the English Football Association, it is officially “serious violations of the Fa regulations”. A special commission of the English Football Association has now quite 29 on the Kieker. After all, you are not simply sentenced with such a high fine of 84,000 euros. In addition, there is the 6 week ban.

For a football professional of this caliber, this form of punishment is certainly even more painful to cope with. But it gets worse: His brother Leon is said to have been involved and is now considered an accomplice in court (helper in a crime). So he also has to expect a penalty. Leon Sturridge is said to have bet on his brother’s transfer in early 2018. Daniel reportedly told him that he would switch to Club FC Sevilla and that Leon should bet on it. Of course, it was not a small bet amount.

Surprisingly, however, there was never such a transfer, because Daniel did not switch to Sevilla FC, but helped Club Bromwich Albion to get back on its feet as the club was relegated. Daniel Sturridge played on loan for Albion until the end of 2018. The kicker originally came from Chelsea to Liverpool FC (the Champions League winner in June 2019). What is Daniel’s situation like now? This question is easy to answer, because it should be clear to everyone that such an act can only go in one direction: the player is currently without a club.

Of course, the brothers weren’t as careless as it might seem at first glance. So Leon Sturridge was not the one who bet on his brother’s transfer, because that would of course be far too conspicuous. One of the accomplices is said to have been Anthon Walters: According to the prosecutor, he bet on the move to the Série A club Internazionale and lost a total of GBP 10,000. During this period, not only Newcastle wanted Daniel Sturridge on the team, but also internationals.

This is a very interesting indication, which the public prosecutor’s office examined more closely. It then emerged that his uncle named Dean Sturridge also appeared to have been involved in these dark machinations. How much of it has been set is not yet clear. What became apparent, however, is the fact that the people who interact directly or indirectly with the football player were involved in the “sudden wealth”. During the investigation period, investigators found that the perpetrators had used just over £ 34,000 and won just under £ 10,700.

The lock on the player was not imposed in one piece, according to the English Football Association, but took place in two parts. The kicker has already served the first two weeks of the suspension by July 31. The Premier League season is at its peak in late August. It was precisely in this period that Daniel had to serve the next “season” of the lock: This started on August 31 and lasted a total of 4 full weeks. Officially, Sturridge is allowed to join a football club again. However, he can forget his good reputation for now.

English Football Association calls for 6 months for sturridge

If all offenses related to this betting scandal are summed up, the football professional is charged with a total of 11 policy violations. Certainly not little. The good news for the kicker, however, is that he has not been officially awarded 9 of these policy violations. In 9 cases, the player was acquitted by the regulatory commission. The English Football Association is not particularly happy about this and cannot fully understand the decision. According to a press release from the FA, “The violations concerned a violation of the inside information policy.” Daniel Sturridge provided his family and friends with internal information in January 2018 in order to achieve a potential profit in the betting business.

The organization does not agree to the rejection and would now like to appeal against the mild judgment. The kicker should go off the grass for 6 months and not just 6 weeks, as has been the case up to now. The sanctions should therefore be increased subsequently. The 6-week ban, including a fine, would not punish the kicker hard enough for his offenses (according to the FA). So the verdict was far too lenient – said the FA in a press release from the English magazine “The Guardian”. More precisely, it says that the seriousness of the offense does not stand out clearly enough if the punishment is so mild. Members of the FA would not recognize it as a deterrent example. A ban of less than six months is not acceptable for the association.

Daniel Sturridge is not pleased with the appointment

It is not yet clear when exactly the appeal will be negotiated. An exact date has not yet been set. However, the kicker decided to take a position and comment on the allegations. He has rejected all allegations and represents the point of his innocence on all charges. The player is literally “very disappointed” about the FA’s decision to appeal. After all, he has already received a sentence and has already served it. Now another procedure is to be initiated and this naturally gives the player a headache. Sturridge will not deviate from his point of view in the future and will defend his innocence on all points.

The last 15 months of his life had been very stressful and he was actually glad that the process was finally over. Thanks to the appeal, everything starts all over again and this is understandably very annoying for the player.

In order to expand his credibility, he asked for confirmation from the commission – which he received. The committee therefore considers him innocent, because it was not for nothing that 9 of the 11 charges against him were dropped. The commission sees Daniel Sturridge as an honest and good football player.

The commission itself informed the press that they considered Daniel credible and that he was a good witness in this case. However, when he was initially questioned, the panel’s statements came across as somewhat confusing. So he contradicted himself a few times. It remains to be seen what will happen next.

Mina also indicted by Everton

Not only Daniel Sturridge has been charged with betting fraud and must now stand for it. Another Premier League player was charged with violations. After all, the betting regulations must be observed. The FA also went to Yerry Mina, because the Everton defender must now actually defend himself against the allegations. In Colombia, the player did not appear in a commercial for BetJuegos according to the regulations. Even if not much has been announced about the reasons so far, this appearance on TV is considered a violation of the regulations of the English Football Association. Rule E8 states that members who are connected with the FA are not allowed to advertise for betting providers on TV. Participation in advertising for any betting activity is expressly prohibited and every player knows that very well. Incidentally, this regulation applies internationally.

The professional player only recently (08/2018) switched from FC Barcelona to Everton. So far, Mina has not responded to the allegations and has not taken a position publicly or privately. Another candidate is former Manchester United player Scholes Paul, who was also fined £ 8,000 in mid-June for a betting scandal. Scholes had many accounts with various betting providers, such as the world-famous betting giant PPB (Paddy Power Betfair). It was Paddy who ultimately reported the player to the FA. Paul confessed to the deeds and denied nothing.
