Atletico Madrid right-back Kieran Trippier has been given a ten-week suspension by the Football Association after he was found guilty of breaching the governing body’s rules on betting.

The 30 year old England defender is also fined £70,000 and his ban is effective worldwide after the FA launched an application with FIFA.

An FA spokesperson said: “The Atletico Madrid defender denied seven alleged breaches of FA Rule E8(1)(b), which were said to occur during July 2019, and requested a personal hearing.

“An independent Regulatory Commission was appointed to hear the case, with four of the alleged breaches found proven and three dismissed during a subsequent personal hearing.

“The independent Regulatory Commission’s written reasons for its decisions and the associated sanction will be published in due course.”
