The 10-week ban handed over by the Football Association (FA) to Kieran Trippier was postponed by FIFA following an appeal from Atletico Madrid.

On December 23, it was revealed that the England international defender had broken betting laws and received a £ 70,000 fine in addition to his long suspension.

However, Atletico Madrid took an exception from the ruling, which would cause them to lose a starting player for a long period of time.

As head coach Diego Simeone protested, “We think it’s unfair and we hope this can be revamped because of the damage done to Atletico,”

“Atletico certainly has absolutely nothing whatsoever to do with the situation so we hope it can be re-assessed in some way, because although the FA benefits from this, Atletico is harmed by it which has nothing to do with it.”

They appealed the ruling to FIFA as a result.

The governing body of world football reported on Sunday that it will listen to the situation.

“Regarding the appeal and, specifically, the request for interim relief lodged by the club Atletico Madrid, the FIFA Appeal Committee has authorized to stay the extension of the sanction against Kieran Trippier until the procedure is off before the FIFA Appeal Committee,” the FIFA Appeal Committee reported.

Atleti are particularly keen on overturning the ban because they are in the midst of a Primera Division title chase.

They saw Real Madrid jump ahead of them by a single point in the standings on Saturday, but the Wanda Metropolitano side have three games in hand over their near rivals.

So far this season, Simeone’s men have been in ruthless form domestically, winning 11 of their 14 league matches and suffering only a single loss.
