The Premier League have sensationally disqualified the original winner of their 2019-20 Fantasy game for a mystery breach of the rules. 

Bulgarian player Aleksandar Antonov, who has a YouTube channel on Fantasy football called TooGoodFPL, was announced as the winner following the final round of Premier League games on July 26, finishing 18 points clear of second-placed Joshua Bull. 

However, the Premier League confirmed on Tuesday morning that Antonov has 'been removed from FPL due to a breach of our terms', with the Bulgarian tweeting that he would let people know why he was removed in a video this evening on his YouTube channel.
