Despite illegal activities, the team wants the player to remain.
The British media ‘Daily Mail’ reported on the 19th (Korean time), “Brentford has started negotiations with Ivan Tony (27) to renew the contract. Even though he was suspended for 8 months, he wants to remain in the team.”
Brentford lost a key player for a while. Tony is a striker who scored 20 goals in the English Premier League (PL) in the 2022-23 season. Behavior off the football field became a problem. According to the English Football Association (FA), Tony received an eight-month suspension for violating the betting rules a total of 232 times from 2017 to 2021. It is only possible to participate in the game until mid-January next year.

However, an illegal act in the past puts the brakes on his career for a while. According to British ‘Sky Sports’, the FA is trying to expand the scope of Tony’s punishment to the international football world. He is afraid of a device that prevents him from participating in the game even if he transfers on loan.
Meanwhile, Brentford is trying to renew Tony’s contract. Even if Tony transfers later, he is determined to get his full price for the transfer fee. ‘Daily Mail’ said, “Brentford may insert a release clause into the contract. They may sell him in the transfer market next summer.” I will have no choice but to send it to,” he explained.
First of all, I’m going to put out the urgent fire. ‘Daily Mail’ added, “Brentford and Tony are deciding whether to appeal the FA’s punishment. After that, we will start discussions on renewing the contract in earnest.”
