PARIS (Reuters) – Former France international Jerome Rothen has been given a three-month suspended ban for predicting results on a betting website, the French League (LFP) said on Thursday.
Bastia midfielder Rothen predicted the results of Ligue 2 games on the Unibet website earlier this season.
The LFP ruled that Rothen had done so in "good faith", but reminded him that it is forbidden for a professional player to be involved at any level with football betting.
Rothen, 34, won 13 caps between 2003 and 2007, scoring one goal.
