That article is utterly depressing, if it's not some kind of fake news hoax, which I'm still not sure of, it's that effing barmy. I'd take them to ACAS or whatever it's called, or pay for a good lawyer and appeal.
They must have been youth players at a club with some sort of contract because as I thought I understood it, you cannot get disciplined for something you did before you become a pro. Unless they lied in some pre joining interview about not having said anything naughty.
