Daniel Strurridge Banned From Football Worldwide Until June – Sports

Published

on

Former Liverpool and England striker Daniel Sturridge has been handed a worldwide football ban until June.

Sturridge, whose contract with Turkish side Trabzonspor was terminated on Monday morning, has also been fined £150,000 following a successful appeal from the FA over the findings of a regulatory commission over allegations of the provisions of inside information for gambling.

Sturridge was initially handed a six-week ban in July last year, which led to the FA calling for a six-month suspension. The initial fine was £75,000.

The FA released a statement on Tuesday which read: “Daniel Sturridge has been suspended from all football and football-related activity from today until the end of 17 June 2020.

“Following an appeal by The FA of the previous findings of the independent Regulatory Commission in this case, an independent Appeal Board has found that the Regulatory Commission misapplied The FA’s Rules in relation to the use of inside information and made findings of fact which could not be sustained. As a result, the Appeal Board has found proven two further charges which were originally dismissed. Other factual findings of the Regulatory Commission were left undisturbed.

“In relation to the sanction, the Appeal Board agreed with The FA that the penalty originally imposed on Mr Sturridge was unduly lenient and therefore increased his effective playing ban from two weeks to four months. The Appeal Board also doubled the fine to £150,000.

Messi a level above Ronaldo in class of his own’ – Beckham ranks Barcelona star above former Man Utd No.7

The Red Devils and Real Madrid legend considers an Argentine playmaker to be a better player than a man who inherited his shirt at Old Trafford

Lionel Messi is a level above even Cristiano Ronaldo, says Manchester United legend David Beckham, with the Barcelona superstar considered to sit in a class of his own.

Many share that opinion of the mercurial Argentine forward, with his exploits at Camp Nou continuing to amaze and raise the bar of individual excellence.

Eternal rival Ronaldo is the only player to have got close to Messi, with the pair having split 11 Ballons d’Or between them.

Messi, though, has captivated audiences with his mazy dribbling and audacious finishing for the best part of 16 years, with a remarkable return of 627 goals recorded for the Blaugrana in that time.

For former England captain Beckham, who passed on the No.7 shirt at United to Ronaldo and also preceded him at Real Madrid, South American flair wins out over Portuguese power.

He told Telam: “He [Messi] is alone in his class as a player, it is impossible that there is another like him.

“He, like Cristiano Ronaldo, who is not at his level, are both above the rest.”

Lionel Messi David Beckham FC Barcelona PSG

Beckham briefly shared a Champions League stage with Messi towards the end of his own distinguished playing career.

The former LA Galaxy midfielder was on the books at Paris Saint-Germain by that stage, as he prepared to hang up his boots in France.

PSG were paired with Barca at the quarter-final stage of Europe’s premier club competition in 2013, with the Catalan giants eventually progressing on away goals after a 3-3 stalemate over two legs.

Beckham’s side were ahead at one stage during their visit to Camp Nou, but Messi stepped off the bench in that game and Pedro snatched what would prove to be the decisive effort in a thrilling tie.

“We were leading before Messi came in, and once he came in, Barcelona scored,” Beckham said.

“Although I enjoyed playing at that level at my age, I do not like to lose.

“Our team played well. In both matches, we did things we should be proud of.

“We didn’t lose against Barcelona, and that is something that should motivate us.”
