Atlético appeals to CAS in attempt to suspend Trippier ban
Atlético Madrid appealed to the Court of Arbitration for Sport on Tuesday to suspend Kieran Trippier's ban for breaching betting rules.
Atlético filed its appeal to CAS a day after FIFA rejected the Spanish club's attempt to keep the ban imposed on the defender by the English Football Association from being applied worldwide.
The England international was punished by the FA for passing information on his 2019 transfer from Tottenham to Atletico to be used by friends to bet on.
Spanish league leader Atlético succeeded two weeks ago in getting FIFA to pause Trippier's 10-week ban that was imposed in December and runs through Feb. 28.
As it stands, Trippier would miss nine more games, including the Champions League fixture against Chelsea in the round of 16 on Feb. 23.This story has been published from a wire agency feed without modifications to the text.
