Former Liverpool forward Daniel Sturridge has been banned from all things football till June 18 due to the 30-year-old’s involvement in gambling activities.
The Trabzonspor forward who got off the mark already with seven goals in 16 games for the Turkish giants was originally given six weeks of no action, last summer, but the F.A appealed against the findings of an independent commission.
An appeal panel equally added the fine to £150, 000.
The 2019 champions league winner had these to say on his YouTube channel: ” I just want to say it’s been a very long and drawn-out process over the last couple of years and difficult to concentrate on my football.
“I’m going to continue to campaign for professional footballers to be able to speak to their families and close friends freely, without the real risk of being charged.
“I feel the betting companies and practice and process of people placing bets on players moving clubs have to be stopped,” the 31-year-old emphasized.
Daniel Sturridge has refuted all allegations of having passed over information on a potential January 2018 transfer move to his brother Leon, on Spanish side Sevilla.
BBC Sports has reported that the forward equally terminated his contract on Mon with Trabzonspor on mutual terms as the player currently feels uncomfortable receiving wages without having a real impact in the squad.
