Ivan Toney ‘shocked & disappointed’ over claims of six-month ban

Brentford striker Ivan Toney is furious with the alleged bans he will receive for 262 breaches of betting rules.

In November, Ivan Toney was charged with 232 breaches of the FA’s gambling rules between 2017 and 2021.


has accepted him breaching FA rules but he is contesting some of the 232 breaches as well as 30 additional charges that were revealed this month.

An Independent Regulatory Commission, set up by FA will rule over the charges but it has been suggested that he could face a six-month ban. This led to Toney posting on social media, expressing his concern for how the details “leaked”.

The Brentford forward wrote on Instagram:

"I was shocked and disappointed to see press speculation yesterday and today about the FA investigation process concerning me after I have been told by the FA that it is a confidential process until any decision has been made. It is especially disturbing for me to read that the FA is saying I shall be banned from football for six months before there has even been a hearing, and it does make me worried about the process.

"My lawyers will be writing to the FA to request that they conduct a leak inquiry as this is the second time stories have appeared in the newspapers - the last time was just before the selection of the England World Cup squad. As I continue to be told the investigation is meant to be confidential, I am unable to provide any further comment. I shall continue to concentrate on my football."
