Liverpool striker Sturridge baffled by FA betting misconduct charge

Daniel Sturridge of Liverpool

Daniel Sturridge of Liverpool

The England global has until 6pm on Tuesday November 20 to respond.

"Daniel has given his full and unequivocal cooperation throughout this process and has assured the club he will continue to do so", the email said.

The Reds' striker has been charged with misconduct for allegedly breaching the FA's rules on gambling, although he says that he has never bet on anything football related.

Rule E8 (1)(a) says a participant in an FA event can not either directly or indirectly, or instruct, permit, cause or enable any person to bet on a match or competition or any other football-related matter.

The charges against Daniel Sturridge include "providing information", which could suggest he has simply told a mate who has then piled his money on the next club being West Brom, knowing fully well that his horse is already past the post as a victor, due to the inside information.

It is alleged he specifically contravened FA Rule E8 (1)(a)(ii) and Rule E8 (1)(b).

Morata has scored three goals in his last two Premier League games, including a decisive brace in the 3-1 win over Crystal Palace last time out.

Liverpool's spokesperson said the player has co-operated fully "throughout this process" and "stated categorically that he has never gambled on football", according to the BBC. The first relates to bets on matches or any other football matter, and the second involves providing information about football from his privileged position to another person for the purposes of betting.

The alleged breach is believed to have occurred during Sturridge's loan spell at West Brom, where the Liverpool striker played six games without scoring a goal as the Baggies were relegated.

The Liverpool and England forward has until Tuesday November 20 to respond to the alleged breach in regulations.

He is now fourth in the pecking order for Liverpool behind Sadio Mane, Mohamed Salah and Roberto Firmino.

He finished last season on loan at West Brom, but has scored four goals in 12 appearances in all competitions for Jurgen Klopp's side this season.
