Tonali to be Banned from Football for 10 months

 Newcastle United midfielder Sandro Tonali has finally been banned for 10 months for breaches of betting regulations in Italy.

The President of the Italian Football Federation (FIGC), Gabriele Gravina, has confirmed this in a statement issued on Thursday.

“The FIGC Prosecutor and Tonali have reached an agreement which I have already approved,” Gravina said.

“The agreement consists of a 10-month ban plus eight months of rehab activities and at least 16 public appearances.”

With the latest development, Tonali will now miss the remainder of Newcastle’s season.

He will also miss the European Championship next summer if Italy qualify.

Tonali, however, will undergo a rehab program for an additional eight months.
