In the end, the disciplinary action against Sandro Tonali was confirmed.

The Italian Football Federation announced on the 27th (Korean time) that ‘the Federal Prosecutor’s Office has reached an agreement with Sandro Tonali (under Article 126 of the CGS), according to which he will be suspended for 18 months, of which 8 months will be reduced to alternative prescriptions, and he will be fined. 20,000 euros (approximately 28.63 million won) was imposed,’ it was made official.

The time goes by on October 12, 2023. Ahead of the UEFA Euro 2024 qualifying Group C match, news broke that Nicolo Fagioli, Nicolo Zaniolo, and Sandro Tonali had been expelled from the Italian national football team for gambling.

Two days after his cell phone was confiscated, Sandro Tonali decided to turn himself in to federal prosecutors, admit responsibility and confess to betting on soccer matches. Although Tonali admitted to gambling on Milan matches when he was under contract with AC Milan. He revealed that when he was not playing he gambled.

He spoke to Turin prosecutors last Tuesday and has been questioned twice by FIGC prosecutor Giuseppe Cine since last week. Tonali, like Fagioli, who gambled with him, sought help for treatment for his gambling.

He also made claims that contradicted Fagioli’s statements. Fazioli stated that Tonali told him about the illegal betting site Icebet, and that he had heard rumors around him that Tonali had a lot of gambling debt.

However, Tonali denied that he only enjoyed gambling on his own and never involved his friends or colleagues. He claimed that gambling debt was also a rumor and that he had no debt at all.

Newcastle finally announced on the club’s website on the 18th (Korean time), “Newcastle United has confirmed that Sandro Tonali is under investigation by the Italian Prosecutor’s Office and the Italian Football Federation (FIGC) in relation to illegal betting activities.토스카지노 주소
