​Ex-Tottenham defender Tripper charged with alleged betting breaches

England defender Kieran Trippier has been charged with misconduct for alleged breaches of the Football Association's betting rules.

The alleged offences occurred in July 2019, which is when Trippier joined Atletico Madrid from Tottenham Hotspur.

The 29-year-old has until 18 May to provide a response.

"I have fully complied with the FA's investigation over the past several months on a voluntary basis and will continue to do so," Trippier said.

"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."
