Daniel Sturridge allegedly violated betting regulations in January 2018

Liverpool FC forward Daniel Sturridge is facing a Football Association misconduct charge over breaches of the English football governing body’s betting rules.

Sturridge is alleged to have breached Rule E8(1)(a)(ii), which states that those under the FA’s jurisdiction must not bet, either directly or indirectly, or enable any other person to bet on any aspect of a football match or competition.

He has also been charged with breaking rule E8(1)(b), which prohibits any person from providing information relating to football derived from their position within the game.

The charges both stem from alleged offences committed in January 2018. During that month Sturridge, 29, was loaned to rival Premier League team West Bromwich Albion FC.

A statement from Liverpool provided to the BBC says that the England international "stated categorically that he has never gambled on football".

"As with any issue of this nature, we will allow the process to be concluded in its entirety before making any further comment," the club added.

Sturridge has until 6PM on Tuesday November 20th to respond to the charge.
