Burnley FC: Analyst Richard Bredice banned for betting breaches


A former member of Vincent Kompany’s staff at Burnley has lost his job after receiving a 12-month ban after admitting breaching betting rules.

Richard Bredice, a performance analyst, placed 456 bets during a six-year stint between November 1, 2014 and December 13, 2022. The majority of those bets were placed while he worked at Manchester City.

He admitted the charge and has subsequently been banned for 12 months and fined £4,500. Six months of his suspension is effective immediately, while the other six months are suspended until the conclusion of the 2025/26 season.
