Daniel Sturridge has been charged with misconduct by the Football Association in relation to rules against betting.

The Liverpool striker has been given until November 20 to respond to the charge, which alleges that he breached the FA’s betting rules in January of this year.

A Football Association statement read:

“Daniel Sturridge has been charged with misconduct in relation to alleged breaches of The FA’s Betting Rules, specifically in relation to Rule E8(1)(a)(ii) and Rule E8(1)(b), during the period of January 2018. He has until 6pm on Tuesday 20 November 2018 to respond to the charge.

Rule E8(1)(a) – a participant shall not bet, either directly or indirectly, or instruct, permit, cause or enable any person to bet on – (i) the result, progress, conduct or any other aspect of, or occurrence in or in connection with, a football match or competition; or (ii) any other matter concerning or related to football anywhere in the world, including, for example and without limitation, the transfer of players, employment of managers, team selection or disciplinary matters.

“Rule E8(1)(b) – where a participant provides to any other person any information relating to football which the participant has obtained by virtue of his or her position within the game and which is not publicly available at that time, the participant shall be in breach of this Rule where any of that information is used by that other person for, or in relation to, betting.”

Sturridge is accused of breaking one rule, covering a period when he featured for both Liverpool and loan club West Brom, though no specific details of the charge has been published by the governing body.

A Liverpool spokesman said: “Daniel has given his full and unequivocal co-operation throughout this process and has assured the club he will continue to do so.

“Daniel has also stated categorically that he has never gambled on football. As with any issue of this nature, we will allow the process to be concluded in its entirety before making any further comment.”
