Kieran Trippier has been banned for 10 weeks and fined £ 70,000 by the FA for misconduct related to betting rule violations.
The 30-year-old Atletico Madrid right-back was indicted by the FA in May and was forced to retire from the English squad in October to attend a personal hearing on the allegations.
These relate to bets placed around the time of his move from Tottenham to Spain in July 2019. An independent commission has been appointed to look into the case. Four of the alleged violations were detected and three were dismissed.
Trippier’s worldwide ban means he will be banned from all football-related activities up to and including Sunday, February 28, 2021. This means he will miss the first leg of Atletico Madrid’s final eighth finals against Chelsea and currently a total of 12 games for the club.
