Football player Kieran Trippier has been charged by the Football Association for breaches of betting rules, which could result in a ban.
The association claims that Trippier broke betting rules in July 2019, citing rules E8(1)(a)(ii) and E8(1)(b), although specific allegations against the player weren't disclosed. Under those rules, it appears that Trippier could have bet or given inside information on football matches, transfers, or other wagers related to the sport.
Trippier currently is playing as a right back for Atletico Madrid in La Liga, but he does play on the English national team. He previously played for Burnley and Tottenham Hotspur before leaving for Spain last year.
The player will have until May 18th to respond to the charges. We'll be following the story and updating readers as we learn more.
