Ipswich Town striker Michael Chopra says he is likely to face a ban from racecourses and gambling establishments, but says the ban would help him to fight his gambling addiction.
It is well publicised that I have a gambling addiction problem and I see any such sanctions as being a useful mechanism in helping me to address these problems. As of this year, I’ve voluntarily self-excluded myself from all betting institutions from where I live in Ipswich in order to help me fight this illness.
