Newcastle United’s Italian midfielder Sandro Tonali has been handed a suspended two-month ban by an independent Regulatory Commission after admitting breaches of the English FA’s betting rules, the Premier League club said on Thursday.

The 23-year-old was also fined 20,000 pounds (24,962 USD) and warned by the FA as to his future conduct.

“The banning period is fully suspended for the duration of the 2024/25 season, meaning he will be available to return to competitive football upon the conclusion of an existing ten-month sanction imposed by the Italian Football Federation (FIGC) on 27 October 2023,” Newcastle said in a statement.

“Provided that he does not commit any further breach of the FA Betting Rules during the suspension period, Sandro will not serve any part of the two-month sanction.”

Tonali’s 10-month FIGC ban for breaching rules on betting on matches in Italy means he will miss Euro 2024.
