Atltico Madrid appealed to the Court of Arbitration for Sport on Tuesday to suspend Kieran Trippiers ban for breaching betting rules.

Atletico Madrid appealed to the Court of Arbitration for Sport on Tuesday to suspend Kieran Trippier's ban for breaching betting rules.

Atletico filed its appeal to CAS a day after FIFA rejected the Spanish clubs 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 Atletico succeeded two weeks ago in getting FIFA to pause Trippiers 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.
