FIFA has confirmed this Monday the sanction imposed on Kieran Trippier by the English Football Federation (FA) for violating the betting regulations, so Atlético de Madrid will resort to the TAS.

“The FIFA Appeal Committee has dismissed the appeal filed by the Atlético de Madrid club in a case involving the player Kieran Trippier,” FIFA said in a statement.

“As a consequence, the decision of the FIFA Disciplinary Committee of December 23, 2020, which extends the sanctions imposed on the player by the English Federation, is confirmed so that they can take effect worldwide,” concluded the note from the governing body of football. world.

After hearing this decision, Atlético will appeal to the Court of Arbitration for Sport (TAS) and as a first step will ask that the punishment be suspended provisionally.

“We are going to ask for the immediate precautionary suspension of the TAS sanction,” sources from the rojiblanco club told AFP.

The FA punished Trippier on December 23 with a 10-week suspension until February 28 and a fine of 70,000 pounds (78,200 euros, $ 95,600) for violating the betting rules.

The infractions for which he was sanctioned had occurred in July 2019 when he left the ‘Spurs’ to the rojiblanco club in exchange for 20 million pounds (22.3 million euros, 27.3 million dollars).

According to the FA, Trippier, 30, exchanged WhatsApp messages with friends about his move to the Spanish club, who would later have bet on the transfer.

The commission rejected Trippier’s argument that the messages were humorous and blamed him on four of the seven charges against him.

The punishment was extended to everyone, so the English full-back cannot play for Atlético de Madrid.

The rojiblanco team appealed the sanction and requested precautionary measures so that Trippier could be with his team, granted by FIFA on January 3, while its Appeals Committee decided on the appeal.

Thus, after missing two league games due to this suspension against Getafe and Alavés in December, Trippier was able to play on January 12 against Sevilla (2-0 victory).

Now Diego Simeone will not be able to count on him for the next games, unless the new rojiblanca initiative against TAS prospers.

The English full-back may miss up to seven league games and the first leg of the Champions League round of 16 against Chelsea on 23 February.
