Liverpool youngster Suso fined over ‘gay’ Twitter remark

LIVERPOOL’S Suso has been fined £10,000 by the Football Association for calling team-mate Jose Enrique "gay" on Twitter.





The 19-year-old has also been warned about his future conduct.







Suso last month posted a photo of Enrique having his teeth whitened with the comment: "What f*** is he doing? This guy is gay... he does everything except play football."







The attacking midfielder later deleted the tweet and uploaded the photo with a different comment, saying: "I dunno what to say..."







Suso has now been reprimanded for the remark.







The FA said in a statement: "Following an independent regulatory commission hearing yesterday (Monday, December 17 2012), Liverpool's Jesus Fernandez Saez (Suso) has been fined £10,000 and warned as to his future conduct for a comment posted on Twitter.







"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."







Suso has become an increasingly important member of the Reds' first-team and has made 13 appearances so far this season.







The attacking midfielder moved to Anfield from hometown club Cadiz in 2010 and signed a new long-term contract in October
