Former Tottenham right back Kieran Trippier has been suspended for 10 weeks and fined £70,000 following a breach of betting rules, the English Football Association (FA) said on Wednesday.
Sport betting is a big thing across the world with fans and observers watching events with keen interest and for the sake of fairness, footballers are strictly forbidden from being involved in the act.
Several players have been involved in allegations of Sport betting over time including current Chelsea manager, Frank Lampard, but the latest player being axed is 3Lions and Atletico Madrid defender, Kieran Trippier.
A statement from the English FA reads: "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 defender will now miss at least 13 games in all competitions but is set to return in time for the city derby against Zinedine Zidane’s Real Madrid in March.
