- Brentford striker admitted to 232 breaches of regulations
- Player will now be sidelined until 16 January 2024
Ivan Toney will not play again for Brentford or England this year after he was banned from football for eight months after accepting 232 breaches of the FA’s rules on betting.
The forward was expected to be hit with a heavy punishment after he was subject to 262 FA charges at the end of 2022, but the extent of the ban has still surprised many within the game. Under the terms of the sanction, Toney will be suspended from playing until January 2024 and cannot train with his Brentford teammates until September.
