Ivan Toney facing serious accusations
Ivan Toney has been having a great time lately. The Brentford striker is in good form and scoring goals regularly in the Premier League. Although he failed to get a call-up to the England national team for the World Cup in Qatar, the image he leaves behind on the field is extremely positive.
However, this idyllic period may soon come to an end. On Wednesday, the English Federation announced that the Brentford player had been charged with multiple violations of league regulations. The striker was alleged to have repeatedly bet on football matches between 2017 and 2021, which is completely forbidden for professional players. The federation counted as many as 232 violations of the regulations.
The charges are serious, and the 26-year-old is facing serious consequences. The Bees have conveyed that the Englishman’s situation is currently being analyzed by the club’s lawyers. The matter will also be clarified internally.
The footballer has until November 24 to officially respond to the allegations. It is possible that he faces a months-long suspension.
