The English Football As­so­ci­a­tion has charged Manch­ester City de­fender Martin Demiche­lis for mis­con­duct in re­la­tion to bet­ting. The FA said the 35-yearold Ar­gen­tine has been ac­cused of “com­mit­ting 12 breaches of FA Rule E8 con­cern­ing football matches be­tween Jan­uary 22 and Jan­uary 28, 2016.” The rule states play­ers can­not “bet, ei­ther di­rectly or in­di­rectly, or in­struct, per­mit, cause or en­able any per­son to bet” on the re­sult or out­come of matches across the world. It also says play­ers must not cause or en­able some­one to bet on foot­balling mat­ters such as player trans­fers, em­ploy­ment of man­agers, team selections or dis­ci­plinary mat­ters. The FA did not spec­ify if Demiche­lis is ac­cused of bet­ting on his own matches dur­ing that time pe­riod. City drew 2-2 against West Ham in the league on Jan­uary 23 and beat Everton 3-1 in the League Cup on Jan­uary 27. He has un­til 5pm on April 5 to re­spond to the charge.
