Sandro Tonali’s lawyers have reached an agreement with the FIGC Federal Prosecutor for a ten-month ban, in addition to eight months of therapy. The agreement was confirmed just a few minutes ago by the FIGC President.
As reported by ANSA this morning (via TMW), Tonali’s lawyers have accepted a ten-month ban for their client. There will also be eight months of treatment for the midfielder’s gambling addiction, including in-person meetings and more.
The agreement was confirmed by FIGC President Gabriele Gravina a few minutes ago, as cited by Sky Italia. It has previously been reported that Tonali placed bets on Milan, which increased the length of the ban even if his cooperation helped massively.
Milan, as has been made clear before, were not aware of Tonali’s gambling addiction and there are no grounds for a lawsuit. Newcastle, however, are extremely unfortunate and it has been reported that they will suspend Tonali’s salary during the ten-month ban.
For Tonali, a tough period awaits but he will have to make the best use of the time, recovering from his addiction once and for all.
