Some Tottenham Hotspur fans have taken to Twitter to react to Kieran Trippier’s comments about his last few months in North London.
Trippier ended a four year spell with Spurs last summer when he made the switch to Atletico Madrid.
The England international went into last season on the back of a successful World Cup campaign but struggled with form and injury when he returned to his club side.
The right-back has previously laid some of the blame at Tottenham for his issues and claimed that the club disagreed on the timing of surgery to address groin and pelvic problems (Standard).
Tripper has been once again speaking about his time at Tottenham and revealed to the Beautiful Game Podcast that he went to see Mauricio Pochettino and informed his manager that he had the opportunity to move to Atletico while insisting that he was happy to stay if he was part of the Argentine’s plans but did not receive an answer either way.
He also conveyed his message to Daniel Levy and experienced the same treatment, while also revealing that Spurs insiders had told him that behind the scenes, he had already been offered to other clubs.
Here’s how some Spurs fans reacted to Trippier’s comments.
