English defender Kieran Trippier receives a 10-week worldwide ban and a £ 70,000 fine


Atletico Madrid FURIOUS after being kept in the dark via Kieran Trippier's worldwide TEN-WEEK BAN for violating FA betting rules for his transfer from Tottenham to Spain

  • Kieran Trippier was charged with betting on moving to Spain in May
  • He completed a £ 20m move from Tottenham to Atletico Madrid in 2019
  • Trippier missed England's game against Denmark in October to attend a hearing
  • Under the FA Rules, players cannot place a bet related to soccer or disclose relevant confidential information to anyone who could bet on a scenario
  • The 30-year-old has been banned for 10 weeks and fined a total of £ 70,000

Kieran Trippier was banned from football for 10 weeks worldwide for violating the football association's betting rules.

While the news is a blow to the Atletico Madrid full-back in the short term, it will be a relief for Trippier and English coach Gareth Southgate, who can now pick the defender for World Cup qualifiers in March and European champions in the summer championship.

Atletico reacted with anger to the news, insisting that they had not been told the development and that they continue to consider Trippier, the club's only outfield player to have played every minute in LaLiga this season, for their upcoming games would.

Sportsmail believes, however, that FA officials tried to contact their Spanish counterparts on Tuesday to inform them of the imminent decision.

It is understood that Trippier wants to accept the ban but has not publicly stated his intentions.

And while the prospect of Trippier, who can't even train with his teammates, will object to the 10-week ban and £ 70,000 fine seems slim, the looming possibility that Atletico will not recognize their threats not to recognize the suspension doubled, getting him into trouble unpleasant situation that could lead to a change of heart.

But the expectation is that Atletico will eventually accept their player's ban. The Spanish club won't play again until Wednesday, which means a week of suspension will go by without missing a game.

Trippier will currently miss 12 games for Atletico – including the last Champions League first leg against Chelsea on February 23.

The FA is also unlikely to appeal the punishment, which was achieved by an independent regulatory board.

The Football Federation of England successfully appealed the original six-week suspension of former Liverpool striker Daniel Sturridge and a £ 75,000 fine for breaching betting rules in 2019.

Sturridge was eventually handed a four-month ban after a board of appeal found the original sentence "unreasonably mild".

However, it is not believed that despite similarities in the case, there is an ambition to appeal Trippier's ban.

Sturridge's charges arose out of the disclosure of information about a possible transfer.

This is believed to be a similar case with Trippier who is feared to have been the victim of friends he does not know and who place bets based on information privately shared.

When Trippier responded to the original indictment in May, he said, "As a professional footballer, I have never placed football-related bets or received any financial benefit from other bets."

The charges related to bets placed at the time of his move from Tottenham to Spain in July 2019.

Trippier has been capped 25 times by England and scored a goal in the 2018 World Cup semi-finals

An FA statement confirmed: “The Atletico Madrid defender denied seven alleged violations of FA rule E8 (1) (b) that allegedly occurred in July 2019 and requested a personal hearing.

& # 39; An independent regulatory committee has been appointed to review the case. Four of the alleged violations were detected and three were dismissed at a subsequent personal hearing.

& # 39; The written reasons of the independent regulatory committee for its decisions and the associated sanction will be published in due course.

"The ban, which includes all activities related to football and soccer, applies from today (Wednesday, December 23, 2020) after an application to FIFA worldwide."

The fact that Trippier is available to start qualifying for the 2022 English World Cup and the late Euro 2020 is a big boost for Southgate, who sees the 30-year-old as an important member of his squad.
