English FA charges Paul Scholes with betting on games

Paul Scholes FA Betting Charge

Paul Scholes FA Betting Charge

Paul Scholes has been charged with misconduct by the Football Association for an alleged breach of betting rules.

It is alleged that this gambling took place between 17 August 2015 and 12 January 2019.

It is believed that Scholes' offence is more likely to result in a fine and warning rather than lengthy suspension.

The FA has strict rules precluding those being involved in the game betting on outcomes, regardless of whether teams they are directly involved with are competing in the associated matches. "He has until 26 April 2019 to respond to the charge".

Scholes, who won 66 caps for England between 1997 and 2004, has been a shareholder at non-league side Salford City, along with former United team-mates Gary Neville, Ryan Giggs, Nicky Butt and Phil Neville, since 2014.

If Scholes is found guilty it is possible he faces a ban from football for a period of time.

Scholes lasted just 31 days as Oldham boss before resigning.

Fleetwood manager Joey Barton was suspended for 18 months in 2016 for placing bets on a number of games throughout his footballing career. It was reduced by five months on appeal.
