Liverpool youngster Suso fined by FA for Twitter comment
Liverpool teenager Suso has been fined £10,000 by The Football Association (FA) for a comment posted on Twitter.
The tweet in question was a picture of Reds left-back Jose Enrique getting his teeth whitened with Suso swearing and calling his team-mate “gay”.
The 19-year-old later deleted the remark but has been fined and warned about his future conduct.
Suso has broken into the Liverpool first team this season, making 13 appearances so far in the campaign.
The FA’s statement read: “The charge, which the player admitted and requested a paper hearing, was that he acted in a way which was improper and/or brought the game into disrepute in that the comment was posted on his Twitter account and included a reference to a person’s sexual orientation and/or disability.”

[UK] Manchester City’s Aleksandar Kolarov accused of racial abuse
Monday 17 Dec 2012
Police are investigating an allegation that Manchester City player Aleksandar Kolarov racially abused Newcastle United supporters during his side’s game at St James’ Park.
Northumbria Police confirmed they were investigating a complaint following Saturday’s match.
It is alleged Serbia international defender Kolarov, 27, made comments to fans holding an Albanian flag.
There is a history of enmity between Serbia and Albania.
The force said it took such allegations “extremely seriously” and inquiries were ongoing into the incident.
Kolarov is understood to vehemently deny the allegation.
The player came on as a substitute in City’s 3-1 win over Newcastle but was replaced 18 minutes from time.
Tensions between Serbia and Albania most recently relate to the majority-Albanian Kosovo, which declared independence from Serbia in 2008.
Police have asked for anyone who heard or saw anything, or has any information, to contact them.
