Guardiola’s former assistant suspended from football for a year for violating betting rules

Former assistant to Pep Guardiola, Richard Breads, has been found guilty of violating betting rules and has
been banned from football for 12 months. According to the Daily Mail, Breads lost his job as an analyst at
Burnley following an independent commission’s decision on the betting issue. Most of Breads’ 456 bets were
placed while he was with Manchester City. After leaving City in 2019, he joined Burnley, which was then managed
by Vincent Kompany.

Breads placed 12 bets on player transfers, which involved insider information. One significant bet of £515 was placed the morning after a staff party where the future of an unnamed player was discussed. Out of these insider bets, 11 were successful. Additionally, 129 out of 444 non-transfer-related bets were profitable. He also bet on Manchester City matches, including successfully betting on Shakhtar Donetsk defeating City and Chelsea winning against City in an FA Cup match, which ended 5-1 in favor of Chelsea.

As a result, Richard Breads has been disqualified for 12 months, fined £4,500, and ordered to pay £500 in legal costs. He has the right to appeal the decision.

In a related issue, the Football Association of England has accused West Ham midfielder Lucas Paquetá of attempting to deliberately receive yellow cards on four occasions, allegedly linked to betting on these cautions.
