Kieran Trippier Told Friends To 'Lump' Money On His Move To Atletico Madrid In Damning WhatsApp Messages

Kieran Trippier Told Friends To 'Lump' Money On His Move To Atletico Madrid In Damning WhatsApp Messages

Kieran Trippier shockingly told his friends in WhatsApp messages to 'lump' their money on him moving to Atletico Madrid in 2019, according to stunning reports.

The 30-year-old England international was handed down a 10-week ban from football in December after he breached four betting offences.

However, the Football Association has not enforced the suspension as they provide Trippier's current club 'with more information.'

The shock findings behind the ban were published on Tuesday, which revealed the extent of Trippier's discussions with his pals.

Trippier left Spurs in 2019 and attracted interest from Juventus and Napoli, but the former Tottenham right-back would move to Atletico on a three-year deal.

However, one WhatsApp exchange with a friend revealed that they asked the Atletico player if they should place bets on him moving to Spain.

Trippier added in a follow-up message: "Lump on if you want mate."

Trippier even opened up about the negotiations with a friend in another discussion, saying Tottenham chairman Daniel Levy was holding out for an additional £500,000.

The friend would later place two £22 bets on Trippier to make his switch to Atletico from Spurs.

According to The Daily Mail, Trippier never explicitly told his friends to put bets on his move in the damning WhatsApp messages.

Trippier told the friend in an earlier conversation that same month the bookies had him at 6/1 to move to Atletico.

The former Burnley player replied with three crying with laughter emojis before sending another two messages, only to swiftly delete them.

As Trippier closed in on the transfer, he messaged his pals in a WhatsApp group saying it was a "done deal" alongside a thumbs-up emoji.

Two of Trippier's friends would place a bet on his Atletico move shortly afterwards, which included one £300 bet at 4/11 odds.
