Newcastle United midfielder Sandro Tonali is reportedly facing a 10-month ban following an investigation into alleged betting breaches. While discussions are ongoing, fans have expressed their opinions on social media, with some believing the season will be over for the Magpies if the ban is confirmed.
Sky Sports’ Keith Downie reported that Tonali is expected to learn his fate in the coming hours. If the 10-month ban is imposed, it would rule Tonali out for the remainder of the season for Newcastle and potentially the European Championships with Italy if they qualify.
Tonali, who was signed by Eddie Howe’s side for a reported £55 million during the summer transfer window, has made 11 appearances for the club, scoring once.
Newcastle is set to face Borussia Dortmund in the Champions League on Wednesday, and if Tonali receives news of a suspension before kickoff, it could further impact the team’s midfield options.
Fans on social media had mixed reactions to the news. While some believed that the season would be severely impacted if Tonali is banned, others suggested that the punishment should be even more severe, with one fan proposing a two-year ban.
The uncertainty surrounding Tonali’s situation adds pressure to Newcastle’s campaign, and the club will be awaiting official confirmation from the authorities regarding the length of the ban.
