Says he has never placed a football bet in his entire career. That sounds fishy in itself.

Could be an element of truth to that - he might just have got other people to bet on it instead. If authorities can find proof of that, then he could be in trouble. Think Sturridge did the same recently with his transfer to Turkey, knowing it was going to happen and getting someone to bet on that outcome...

The breach regarding players not telling people things that aren’t public knowledge is a tough one. If he’s told his immediately family, e.g parents, siblings and his partners family, that he had an offer to consider from Atletico Madrid and one of those people has gone and walked into Ladbrokes and put on him moving to Atleti, is that actually Trippier’s fault?

However, if he’s provided funds so that someone can bet on it, that is an issue, though proving that becomes more difficult.
