Newcastle and Italy midfielder Sandro Tonali has been banned from football-related activities following his conviction for betting-related allegations.
Newcastle spent a hefty amount of money on the former AC Milan international, but after speculations and investigations, Tonali has received a ten-month worldwide ban, and he will also partake in a rehabilitation process that will last for eight months.
Tonali was part of the Newcastle team that lost at home to Borussia Dortmund on Wednesday night in the Champions League; he came on as a second-half substitute, and that is now his last game for the club until the end of his ban.
Tonali will miss the rest of the season and will also not be partaking in the upcoming Euro 2024 championships with the Italian national team.
