PUNISH HIM! Daniel Sturridge: Former Liverpool striker should be BANNED FOR LIFE for breaching betting rules, Simon Jordan tells talkSPORT

Simon Jordan has backed the Football Association’s decision to appeal against Daniel Sturridge’s punishment for breaching betting rules – saying the former Liverpool striker should be banned from football for LIFE.

Shortly after Sturridge was hit with a £75,000 fine and a six-week ban, four of which were suspended, by an independent regulatory commission, the FA announced they would push for a tougher punishment as the 26-cap England international had used ‘cynical determination’ to help others place bets.

They added in a statement that anything shorter than a six-month ban for the player would ‘wholly fail to reflect the gravity of the case’.

Sturridge’s punishment, handed out after nine of 11 charges were dismissed, means he pays back less than one week’s worth of his reported wage at Liverpool – while he is free to resume playing football on July 31.
