Hamza Choudhury: Leicester City star fined over historical social media comments | UK News



Leicester City player Hamza Choudhury has been fined £5,000 and ordered to attend an education course due to historical comments on social media.

The 21-year-old wrote the messages in 2013 and 2014 and apologised for the posts last week when he was charged with misconduct by the governing body.

An FA statement said: “Comments posted by the Leicester City player on social media between 20 June 2013 and 10 May 2014, which included reference to ethnic origin and/or race and/or sexual orientation, were found to be abusive and/or insulting and/or improper and/or brought the game into disrepute.

“The midfielder was also warned as to his future conduct.”
