“We should 100% not have sold Trippier” – Some fans are regretting the sale of right-back

Kieran Trippier assisted Alvaro Morata’s winning goal as Atletico Madrid defeated Getafe in their opening La Liga match.

The former Tottenham Hotspur player was named in Diego Simeone’s starting line up for the match at the Wanda Metropolitano Stadium, which was the venue for the North London club’s heartbreaking defeat to Liverpool in the Champions League final.

Trippier picked up the ball on the right side of the pitch in the 23rd minute and played a beautiful cross onto the head of the former Chelsea forward.

The right-back’s contribution caused some fans to react on Twitter, with some even questioning the decision of parting company with him during the summer for £20million (BBC) without recruiting a replacement.

Trippier’s place at Spurs has been filled in the first two matches of the Premier League campaign by academy product Kyle Walker-Peters, with Serge Aurier yet to feature.  

Juan Foyth, another right-back option has been sidelined through suspension and injury.

Here’s what some supporters had to say on Twitter.

Have something to tell us about this article?


  1. Some people are just sad. Tripps is playing at a top 3 team in Spain where he is does not have to deal with the physical and speed of the Premier league on a weekly basis. Of course he is going to do decent over there. It just blows my mind how some people are that stupid to think that he would have played the same with us after that dreadful season he had. He had lost it physically and was blown past by all the top 6 teams in the pl.

  2. Do you ever post anything positive about Spurs? Picking up random negative tweets from Twitter and trying to spin news out of it – is lazy pot stirring – it is not journalism. Most fans believe KWP is a better option.
