Titus Bramble fined by Sunderland for misconduct

Posted on by SoccerPunter

Titus Bramble was on Tuesday fined by his English Premier League club Sunderland for bringing their name into disrepute.

The 30-year-old defender was arrested on suspicion of sexual assault and possession of a Class A drug in September, but will now not face the drugs charge.

Police, though, charged him on October 28 with two counts of sexual assault and urinating in a public place.

A Sunderland spokesperson said that Bramble, who was suspended by the club after he was arrested, had been given the heaviest punishment possible but would not specify what it was for.

“Titus Bramble has been fined and given the maximum sanction permitted for bringing the club’s name into disrepute,” said the spokesperson.

“The club can also confirm that the allegation of a drug-related offence has been dropped and Titus has tested negative for all banned substances, as he has done in all previous drug tests carried out throughout his career.

“Sunderland AFC is unable to comment further at present.”

Bramble, who began his career at Ipswich before moving on to Newcastle and then Wigan, was criticised by Sunderland manager Steve Bruce after the incident.

“I don’t think you should be in a nightclub on a Tuesday night,” said Bruce, who also managed Bramble when he was at Wigan.

“I don’t think any footballer should be in a nightclub on a Monday night, Tuesday night or Wednesday night — not with a game on a Saturday, especially after the way you have just been beaten on the Monday night.

“In my day, the vast majority of people I played with would have put their head down, gone into the bunker and said, ‘Well, I am going to go and train hard and put it right on Saturday’.”
