“The FIFA Appeals Committee has dismissed the appeal filed by the Atlético de Madrid club in the case of the player Kieran Trippier,” the world soccer governing body reported in a statement on its website.

“As a consequence, the decision of the Disciplinary Committee of December 23, 2020 is confirmed, so the extension imposed on the player by the English FA has a worldwide effect,” adds FIFA.

This means that Trippier will again not be able to play or train with Atlético, due to the sanction for “misconduct in relation to the Betting Rules” of the English body, which included ten weeks of punishment and a fine of 70,000 pounds (78,500 euro).

According to the FA statement, “seven alleged breaches of Rule E8 (1) (b) were attributed to him during July 2019”, before his signing for Atlético de Madrid, of which “an independent commission” verified ” four of the alleged breaches”. The other “three were dismissed in a personal hearing.”

Trippier’s Hollow

Due to this decision, the English winger missed out on the matchday sixteen of the League against Getafeand could not play the following day against the Alavesthe same day that the precautionary suspension of the sanction was confirmed, since he had not trained or traveled to Vitoria, headquarters of that party; but he did return to the rojiblanco pitch last Tuesday against Sevilla.

With the parenthesis of the precautionary measure, the player would have to serve another nine weeks of suspension, which would take the punishment until March 22: he would miss 13 games, including the two round of 16 matches of the Champions League against English Chelsea.

According to these calculations, the sanction would end just before the dates reserved for qualifying matches for the World Cup in Qatar 2022, with which Trippier could reappear with the English team, which plays against San Marino on March 25, Albania on March 28 and Poland on 31.
