Atletico Madrid and England defender Kieran Trippier has been suspended for 10 weeks and fined 70,000 pounds following a breach of betting rules, the Football Association said on Wednesday.
Trippier, 30, denied seven alleged breaches of FA Rule E8, which were said to occur in July 2018, 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 FA said in a statement.
The suspension, which includes all football-related activity, begins on Wednesday following an application to world soccer’s governing body FIFA, the FA added.
