Yesterday, Sandro Tonali confessed to placing bets on AC Milan victories during a hearing with the Italian Federation. The Newcastle midfielder, implicated in an Italian football betting investigation last week, has left the club surprised and shocked by the revelations, according to sources.

Sandro Tonali is confronting a substantial football ban after acknowledging his wagers on AC Milan games during his tenure with the Italian club, as reported by Sky in Italy.

The Newcastle midfielder openly admitted on Tuesday to placing bets on Milan’s victories during a hearing held at the Italian Federation in Turin. Following his involvement in an Italian football betting inquiry last week, Tonali, 23, was notably excluded from the senior men’s squad in the recent defeat to England.

Sky Sports News has learned that Newcastle is taken aback and bewildered by these revelations, refraining from making any official comments at this moment.

In his hearing, Tonali reportedly confessed to betting on matches, whether he played or not, for Milan to secure victories. In line with FIFA Code 26, such conduct could result in players facing up to a three-year ban from international football.

Tonali is anticipated to receive a somewhat reduced but still significant ban, reflecting his cooperation with the investigation and his admission of guilt.
