England and Atletico Madrid right-back banned for 10-week worldwide football and fined £ 70,000


After a Football Association tribunal found he broke betting laws, England and Atletico Madrid right-back Kieran Trippier was issued a 10-week worldwide football ban and fined £ 70,000.

Seven suspected violations were refuted by the 30-year-old, but four were found to be proved during a personal hearing.

In July 2019, when Trippier joined Atletico from Tottenham Hotspur, the offenses took place.

His ban on all football will take effect immediately.

On 23 February, he will miss 12 games for La Liga leaders Atletico, including their Champions League final-16 first leg tie at Chelsea’s home.

However, on 7 March, he will be available for the Madrid derby.

Its prohibition relates to Rule E8(1)(b), which states: “Where a participant provides to any other person any information relating to football which the participant has obtained by his or her position within the game and which is not publicly available at that time, the participant shall be in breach of this rule where any of that information is used by that other person for, or about, betting.”
