London (AFP) – England’s International Kieran Trippier was banned for 10 weeks and fined £ 70,000 ($ 94,000) for violating betting rules, the Football Association (FA) announced Wednesday.
The global ban on all football and football-related activities by the 30-year-old Atletico Madrid defender will continue until February 28th.
Trippier’s ban takes effect immediately.
Former Tottenham Hotspurster, one of England’s prominent performers in the 2018 World Cup semifinals, has denied seven charges.
However, the FA said four of the alleged violations were proven and the other three were dismissed.
“Atletico Madrid defenders denied seven alleged violations of FA Rule E8 (1) (b), allegedly occurred in July 2019, and requested a personal hearing.” A FA spokesman said.
“A separate regulatory committee was appointed to hear the case, four of the alleged violations were proven and three were dismissed at a subsequent personal hearing (October).
“Written reasons for the Independent Regulatory Commission’s decisions and related sanctions will be published in due course.”
According to their website, Trippier will be excluded from at least 14 games of Spanish La Liga leader Atletico, including the first leg of the last 16 Champions League games against Chelsea on February 23.
He will be able to compete in the Madrid Derby on March 7th.
The crime was committed in July 2019, at a fee of £ 20m, when he completed his move from Tottenham to Atletico.
