      Daniel Sturridge charged with breaching betting rules

      Liverpool's Daniel Sturridge has been charged by the Football Association with misconduct for alleged breaches of its betting rules in January this year.

      It is alleged he breached one rule relating to betting on football, and one which covers providing information relating to football which has been "obtained by virtue of his position" and "is not publicly available".

      A Liverpool spokesman said Sturridge, 29, had co-operated fully "throughout this process" and "stated categorically that he has never gambled on football".

      The England international has been given until 18:00 GMT on Tuesday, 20 November to respond to the charge.

      The Liverpool spokesman added: "As with any issue of this nature, we will allow the process to be concluded in its entirety before making any further comment."

      Sturridge, who joined Liverpool from Chelsea in 2013, spent the second half of last season at West Brom after moving on loan on 29 January.

      He has won 26 caps for England, the last of which came against Lithuania in October 2017.

      An FA statement said the charge against him was "specifically in relation to Rule E8(1)(a)(ii) and Rule E8(1)(b)" which are:

      Rule E8(1)(a) - a participant shall not bet, either directly or indirectly, or instruct, permit, cause or enable any person to bet on - (i) the result, progress, conduct or any other aspect of, or occurrence in or in connection with, a football match or competition; or (ii) any other matter concerning or related to football anywhere in the world, including, for example and without limitation, the transfer of players, employment of managers, team selection or disciplinary matters.

      Rule E8(1)(b) - where a participant provides to any other person any information relating to football which the participant has obtained by virtue of his or her position within the game and which is not publicly available at that time, the participant shall be in breach of this Rule where any of that information is used by that other person for, or in relation to, betting.

      If it is true, he will be banned and can say good bye to a new contract. He needs to clear his name to if he wants to stay here.

      Apparently it’s all about giving people some information that could be used for betting - it’s rumoured to be about player transfers ?

      Does seem out of Character. Unintentional or whatever. Looks like he has been interviewed and the FA think they have sufficient evidence to charge him. Hope it ends well for him.

      Suppose he's being represented by the PFA. We can only hope he gets fair treatment from the FA.

      Obviously being from Birmingham Sturridge is bound to have family and friends in the area. Must be very difficult for any player regarding transfers. I mean you have to arrange accommodation and schooling for your children etc. So there could be numerous situations were so called inside information or betting sensitive information could be communicated innocently.

      these are not secret affecting the Nations security and could be as simple as someone overhearing a conversation with a family member who went and stuck a few quid on his move. Seems a bit vague in terms of proof at this point

      If found guilty I would be surprised if they do not ban him after the Draconian ban they threw at Joey Barton last year. It's not good news for LFC because he was proving to be an effective spell for Firmino in a good few games already this season. Fingers crossed they issue a fine rather than a ban.

      Not sure where I stand on this. I can say if it is or is not  in character as I do not know the player personally. Part of me wants to defend D.S, as he is a Liverpool player, but there is another part of me that says "If" this is proven to be true and because of it LFC does indeed refuse to offer him a new contract then the up side is I feel we have kept him at the club too long and now it will force Klopp to look for a quality replacement

      I don't know...if he himself had bet on games he played in or something of the sort, I can see him getting the book thrown at him, but unless they have evidence that he passed along information knowingly that was to be used by someone to scam the bookies, I just don't see how they can charge him with anything....but it is the FA.

      Thing is, these guys talk to their friends and family about their footballing careers, you can't tell me that family members and close friends don't know their comings and goings as soon as the player does. He can't control what someone else does with that information.

      Like someone else said above, FA have a lot of nerve cracking down on this when they allow betting companies to plaster their ads across stadiums and kits all over the league. What a joke.

      Exactly.

      It used to be booze on every player's shirt (and the kiddie's versions until recent times) now its betting.
      Both can be problematical and addictive.

      Its the FA.  Thinks ........ Luis ?

      What evidence do they have the leak about his move was from him? It could have been from West Brom staff. It could have been an estate agent or anything.

      It could all be bollocks but I doubt they would be investigating unless they had fairly solid information and some evidence. If it forces Jürgen's hand into getting an exciting pacy forward in January then there will at least be a silver lining.

      This is an absolute pile of horse sh*t if ever i saw it. Multiple individuals would have had prior knowledge of this transfer or loan in advance. If anyone looks guilty here it would be his agent in my opinion.

      If the FA pursue this they will end up opening a can of worms that will be never ending.

       Sturridge is a vastly experienced player. Been around football all his working life. He obviously knows the score on confidential information. Probably a clause in his contract on confidential matters related to his employment with the club. Players probably get guidance notes as well.

      So He must know he has to be very careful when it comes to transfers, loan deals etc. Who would know prior to the deal going thru.

      Difficult period for him, hope it ends well.

      Could not even be that malicious in this case. Could’ve just said he’s moving back home and an opportunistic person saw it as a way to profit.

      To tell the truth, i have this uneasy feeling that something is brewing and will explode right in our face  before the end of the 1st half of the season. And this happened, When you go toe to toe with an elite club that can practically buy off anything on this earth, you can expect some spanars to be thrown onto your wheels. if you are a threat to them. Conspiracy theory, well  there are  so much happening behind the scene that  it will be shocking to know what are those issues over the years. I would say, lets open up all cans of worms, if they chose to pick on Studge.

      Is studge case a multimillion or 150 mil dollar transfer that they need to make an issue out of it??? Someone must have lost a heavy bet and is still sore about it. It doesn't make sense to pick on studge when there are much bigger fishes out there. We must remain strong as a club and supporters to whether this storm.

      I take this as a compliment, they could see Studge as a vital factor in our title chase.
