Kieran Trippier ‘may miss Euro 2021 for England’ over ten-week betting ban with Atletico Madrid fuming with punishment – Bukipress

KIERAN TRIPPIER could miss this summer’s European Championship due to his ten-week betting ban.

Last week, the former Tottenham right-back, 30, was found guilty of four of seven alleged betting offences relating to his move to Spain in 2019.

But Atletico Madrid say his ban has now been put on hold after they appealed the ‘totally unjust’ decision.

And it could now affect England’s Euros campaign this summer.

As well as his ten-match ban, Trippier was fined £70,000, with Fifa confirming the ban was effective worldwide and would start immediately.

That meant Trippier would miss Atletico Madrid’s next 13 matches, including the Champions League last-16 clash with Chelsea.

Trippier appealed the decision claiming he did not place any bets or profit from bets placed by others.

The ban left Atletico Madrid chiefs enraged, stating it’s unfair they are being punished when they played no part in the alleged offences.

Miguel Angel Gil Marin, CEO of the LaLiga giants, said: “Personally, I think it’s a suspension that is disproportionate for the player and totally unjust for Atletico.

“How can it be possible that the party that is most negatively effected by this is Atletico, which hasn’t played any part in the process?

“If the player has committed an infraction that does not have any effect on the competition, how can it be Atletico is the one punished by this?

“The fact that the FA has punished the player by preventing him from playing against Chelsea, and that the ban just happens to finish just as the England national team is scheduled to play a competitive game, makes you think all sorts of things about the integrity of the competition and the ethics of a football association with a long history.”

With Trippier’s ban now on ice, he could miss England’s World Cup qualifiers against San Marino, Albania and Poland.

Those three games could be the Three Lions final games before June, when they take on Croatia, Scotland and Czech Republic in the group stages of this summer’s delayed Euros.

The right-back spot is easily England’s deepest too.

Trent Alexander-Arnold and Reece James are already pushing for the starting spot, with Tariq Lamptey, Kyle Walker and Aaron Wan-Bissaka also in the mix.

Missing crucial games in March could see Trippier forced out of the squad and replaced for the Euros.
