Liverpool's Suso fined for tweet


LONDON — Liverpool midfielder Suso has been fined £10,000 ($16,000) for posting a tweet about teammate Jose Enrique.

The Spaniard last month posted a photo of Enrique having his teeth whitened and wrote on Twitter, "This guy is gay . . . he does everything except play football."

He deleted the tweet, then reposted the picture with a new comment, "I dunno what to say. . ."

The English Football Association says Suso admitted at a hearing to a charge of acting "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."

The 19-year-old Suso signed a long-term contract in October.
