Keiran Trippier out for Chelsea first leg clash after getting banned for ten weeks

Kieran Trippier is set to be out of action for ten weeks after the wide-man was found guilty of misconduct. Trippier reportedly broke betting rules in July of 2019, which called for an investigation from an independent body. 

The Englishman denied the charges when they were presented to him, and has subsequently been found guilty of four of the breaches  Trippier will be banned from football for ten weeks. He will also be facing a fine worth £70,000 in compensation for his offences. 

An official statement on the FA’s website reads: “Kieran Trippier has been suspended for ten weeks and fined £70,000, following misconduct in relation to breaches of The FA’s Betting Rules.”

“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.”

The 30-year-old has been a vital part of Atletico Madrid’s successful campaign so far. He is also one of the team’s best players and has been phenomenal since joining up with Diego Simeone in the Spanish capital, after leaving Tottenham. 

The ten-week ban will see Trippier miss about twelve games in total. By date, Trippier will be banned till the 28th of February. Arguably the most important of them all is the first leg Round of 16 Champions League clash against Chelsea.
