Kieran Trippier completed his exit from Tottenham Hotspur earlier this month when he made the move to Atletico Madrid.
The 28-year-old headed to Spain in a £20million deal which ended a four-year stint in North London (Telegraph).
Trippier struggled with form last season after making high profile errors in matches against Arsenal, Chelsea and Ajax which led to goals being conceded.
His inconsistent displays saw him dropped from the England squad for this summer’s UEFA Nations fixtures with Gareth Southgate instead opting to go with Kyle Walker and Trent Alexander-Arnold (Express).
The former Burnley man was in action for Atletico during their pre-season match against cross-city rivals Real Madrid in the USA and after the match he hinted during an interview with Sky Sports that ‘behind-the-scenes’ incidents led to him wanting to leave Spurs.
Tripper’s comments have certainly angered some pockets of the Spurs support who have taken to Twitter to share their thoughts on what he had to say.
Those issues being constant blaming of teammates for his own stupid mistakes and ridiculous pointing while passing the ball backwards. No shame has Kieran….

He was the issue behind the scenes and in the scenes

He was truly awful last season. He’d have more of a leg to stand on if he was at least average.

His inability to play 1 touch football was the issue, how many times did he try and play a ball 1 touch and it went straight to an opponent? He was the cause of numerous goals from these stupid mistakes. Good luck (and good riddance).

Poch turned him into an England international and in his first interview he throws Poch under the bus. Good riddance to him and his attitude

The issues being that you peaked at the World Cup and then went backwards and made countless errors that cost us games throughout the whole of last season!?!

I liked trips and defended him when he was shit but why has he come out with this bollox, all respect has gone.

More like this lad lost the run of himself when he got into the England team and thought he was a big time charlie and got a few rude awakenings during the season and Poch told him a few home truths. Stupid new teeth on him too. A real sign of a player losing his marbles

He is clearly pissed off he was forced out of the club and not welcomed on the pre season tour.
