Soccer player fined for Twitter comment

Liverpool’s Suso made some offensive remarks about his teammate Jose Enrique, who whitened his teeth.

LONDON  Liverpool forward Suso has been fined 10,000 pounds ($16,200) for a comment he posted on Twitter, the FA said on Tuesday.

Suso was responding to his teammate Jose Enrique posting a photograph of himself getting his teeth whitened.

"What the f*** is he doing? This guy is gay...he does everything except play football," tweeted Suso, who accepted the charge that he had brought the game into disrepute.

The 19-year-old Spaniard, who has made 13 first-team appearances for Liverpool this season, was also warned as to his future conduct by the FA.
