Kieran Trippier fined by FA

Kieran Trippier has been fined by FA after he breached the betting rules.


The charges are related to Kieran Trippier departure from Tottenham for £21.7m in July 2019. The England international left the Spurs in the summer transfer window to join Atletico Madrid.

 

The Football Association made a statement regarding the breached betting rules saying: "Kieran Trippier has been charged with misconduct in relation to alleged breaches of The FA's Betting Rules, specifically in relation to Rule E8(1)(a)(ii) and Rule E8(1)(b), during the period of July 2019.”


 


"Rule E8(1)(a): a participant shall not bet, either directly or indirectly, or instruct, permit, cause or enable any person to bet on - (i) the result, progress, conduct or any other aspect of, or occurrence in or in connection with, a football match or competition; or (ii) any other matter concerning or related to football anywhere in the world, including, for example and without limitation, the transfer of players, employment of managers, team selection or disciplinary matters.

 

"Rule E8(1)(b): where a participant provides to any other person any information relating to football which the participant has obtained by virtue of 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 in relation to, betting."


 


Trippier is allowed to provide a response to those charges as he has time until May 18.

 

However, the 29-year-old right-back insists that he had never profited from on football, or any one else doing so from his behalf.


 

Last year Daniel Sturridge was fined £75,000 and he was given six-week ban from playing football, as he breached the FA gambling rules.

 

Sturridge has informed his brother for a potential move from by him to LaLiga.
