While Danny Rose has received a lot of love on social media from Spurs fans over recent days, his full-back partner Kieran Trippier has not been as fortunate.
The 28-year-old was at the receiving end of a lot of criticism from Spurs fans for his performances last season, and it looks like many still want him out of the club.
Trippier even admitted himself recently that his performances this season left a lot to be desired (Sky Sports). Serie A giants Juventus and Napoli are both said to be intersted in the England international (The Mirror).
The former Burnley man returned to pre-season training yesterday, with many surprised that he still hasn’t been moved on.
While many Spurs fans want the Lilywhites to let the full-back go, some others leapt to his defence and insisted that they want him to stay.
There was one fan who even suggested that a change of position might help the defender thrive, a suggestion which was immediately shot down by others.

For gods sake, people, just get off Trippier back just for a minute will you? He only walked in for first day of pre season, no need to start insulting him again. No wonder he looks so scared and fed up already #COYS #THFC

Kieran Trippier was ran into the ground last season after playing Wing back for Both Spurs and England the season before.
With a full summers rest, he can recapture the form which saw him as one of the best performing full backs in the league.

Spurs Web Opinion:
I believe Trippier that needs a new challenge and that a move to the Serie A will do him a lot of good as the style of football in Italy will suit him. Tottenham need to add another pacey right back to their squad who has the energy to get up and down the pitch for the whole game.
