Atletico Madrid and England outraged by the news of defender Kieran Trippier.
The player was in fact imposed a fine with suspension from the playing fields, for violating the sports regulations.
According to the indictment, the events took place in July 2019, when Trippier played the Champions League final with Tottenham Hotspur, before joining Atletico Madrid in the Spanish Liga.
The player has repeatedly denied the allegations, but an independent regulatory commission proved four of the seven violations of the FA E8 (1) (b) rule, dismissing three more.
Trippier will have to pay a fine of £ 70,000 and a ten-week ban, which will take effect worldwide from 23 December 2020, following a request to FIFA.
The written reasons of the independent regulatory commission will be published in the coming months.
A case, that of Trippier, certainly not isolated; in fact earlier this month Paul Terry, “Loan Manager” of West Bromwich Albion, brother of Chelsea’s John Terry, was fined £ 1000 after confessing over 209 violations of football betting regulations.
Terry is said to have placed a series of “alarmingly high” bets totaling £ 63,800.40, including two £ 10,000 bets on the Champions League match between Manchester United and Basel and the club’s international friendly. England versus Germany.
