Players are banned from betting on football, but this ban has not been respected by Brentford striker Ivan Toney who now risks a long disqualification. He brings it back sports mailwhich sheds some light on the matter. The attacker admitted that he had bet and thus violated the Football Association’s rules of the game. Bets made a few years ago and indeed Toney was charged last November with 232 breaches of the FA’s gambling laws between 2017 and 2021.

However, the footballer has denied some violations, which he will also assert in the next disciplinary hearing.
