England star charged by the FA for breaching betting rules

first_img Ex-Spurs full back Trippier, a big part of Gareth Southgate’s 2018 World Cup squad, has until May 18 to respond but there are obvious similarities to Daniel Sturridge’s case. Former Liverpool striker Sturridge was the last high profile player to be punished under the gambling rules after a series of bets on potential transfers in January 2018. Sturridge was initially hit with a six week ban and £75,000 but the FA appealed against the leniency of the punishment dealt by an independent commission. It was then upgraded in March to a four month world wide ban which then saw him cancel his contract with Turkish club Trabzonspor.

They have been determined to come down hard to set a strong example amid criticism of gambling within football. FacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmail分享 Trippier has pleaded his innocence and insisted he did not place a single bet after an investigation surrounding his £20m move from Tottenham to Atletico Madrid in July 2019. England defender Trippier said: “I have fully complied with the FA’s investigation over the past several months on a voluntary basis and will continue to do so. Kieran Trippier now plies his trade for Atletico Madrid in Spain “I want to make it clear that while a professional footballer, I have at no stage placed any football related bets or received any financial benefit from others betting.” Mirror Sport understands that Trippier fears some close mates may have placed some bets after he had some light hearted banter but has stressed his innocence as he insists it was done without his knowledge. Tripper left Tottenham in the summer after suffering defeat in Champions League final Trippier – a popular member of the England set-up – also maintains that he has not made any profit personally and was completely unaware of any information being passed on. The FA have been investigating the case for the past few months after being alerted to betting patterns around Trippier’s move to one of Spain’s biggest clubs and the deal was seen as a surprise at the time. Trippier has stressed that he is co-operated fully with the FA and there has been no fall-out which he sees as important because he is a fixture in the England set-up.

Lions roar to worsen woes of Kohli’s RCB

first_imgGUJARAT Lions breathed life into their Indian Premier League(IPL) campaign with a dominant seven-wicket victory over Royal Challengers Bangalore, whose dire season continued on Thursday.Put in to bat at M Chinnaswamy Stadium, last year’s beaten finalists were all out for 134, leaving the visiting Lions with a simple task to chase down the total.The departure of Gujarat openers Ishan Kishan (16) and Brendon McCullum (3) offered the hosts some hope, with the loss of the big-hitting New Zealander, caught by AB de Villiers off Samuel Badree at long-on, particularly encouraging.Aaron Finch, though, promptly took control of the contest, racing to a match-winning 72 off 34 deliveries, including five boundaries and six maximums.Pawan Negi eventually dislodged the Australian, but the damage was already done, as unbeaten captain Suresh Raina (34 not out) was joined by Ravindra Jadeja (2no) to finish the job with a luxurious 37 balls remaining.The result means the Lions can still harbour realistic hopes of forcing their way into the top four, but the lacklustre challenge of RCB, second bottom in the standings, is now all but over.Earlier, after a tentative start, the home side suffered a trio of near fatal blows, losing Virat Kohli, Chris Gayle and Travis Head in the space of five balls.Skipper Kohli was the first to depart, a poor shot picking out Finch at short fine leg off Basil Thampi’s unremarkable delivery to see the star India batsman return to the pavilion for just 10.Gayle (8) followed swiftly, edging Andrew Tye’s superb line and length ball to Dinesh Karthik. The impressive Tye (3-12) repeated the feat with his next delivery to get Head out for a duck.Kedar Jadhav (31) undid some good work with an ill-advised late cut attempt off an arrow-straight ball from Jadeja (2-28).And when remaining specialist De Villiers (5) was run out after a mix-up with Mandeep Singh, RCB’s fate was effectively sealed.The only other real resistance was offered, temporarily, by Negi (32) but, after hitting a crowd-pleasing six, a second successive Ankit Soni (1-28) googly proved too tempting, the debutant earning his first T20 wicket thanks to a Thampi catch at deep midwicket.(Omnisport)last_img read more
