Former Manchester United Midfielder Fined $10,000 For Violating Gambling And Betting Rules

A former Manchester United midfielder Paul Scholes has been slapped with a $10,000 fine for violating gambling regulations as he indulged in sports betting activities while actively representing his team.

The English Football Association found that Scholes had been actively betting and had placed at least 140 bets on matches that were held between August 2015 and January 2019. He was also a director at then-fifth-division club Salford City.

Following the announcement of the fine the football association, Scholes has offered an unconditional apology and said that it was a “genuine mistake” and that he was not deliberately violating the rules or that he had any particular motive.

Scholes has been quoted as saying: “I wrongly believed that as long as there was no personal connection between me and any of the matches that I bet upon then there would be no issue.”

Club players and officials in position are not allowed to place bets on sporting events in the UK.

Players and officials being fined for participating in gambling activities is not new. Recently a 22-year-old Belgian tennis player, Benjamin D’Hoe was suspended for six months and fined $3000 for wagering on sporting events.

D’Hoe admitted to placing over 900 bets in the past years. However, he said that most of the stakes were of low value.
