Brentford Football Club’s star striker, Ivan Toney, has been handed an eight-month suspension from all football activities following his admission to breaking betting rules.
The player has confessed to 232 of the alleged breaches of the rules, spanning from January 2017 to January 2021. The football club is now considering the possibility of launching an appeal against the decision.
According to reports, Toney admitted to the 232 breaches, signalling his acceptance of responsibility for his actions. The exact details of the violations have not been disclosed, but it is clear that they occurred over a four-year period.
The absence of Ivan Toney, 27, will undoubtedly impact the upcoming Brentford fixtures and plans for the next season. As one of the team’s key players, Toney’s suspension leaves a significant void in the squad, requiring the club to explore alternative strategies and player selections to compensate for his absence.
