Trippier Says Spurs Got Rid Of Him At The Wrong Time

Kieran Trippier has admitted he struggled in the second half of last season, though he believes Tottenham may have made a mistake in selling him.

“We all did so well at the World Cup but I didn’t have the best season after,” Trippier added. “It wasn’t an easy decision. I love the Premier League but I’m in La Liga now and loving it.

“I set the bar high at the World Cup and they knew how well I could do but I just feel that Tottenham probably got rid of me at the wrong time because I just needed that four-week rest for recovery because I was struggling with injuries to come back, fresh, ready”

“So maybe I could have stayed, but I’ve got no regrets.”

The Atletico Madrid right-back made a £20 million ($24.1m) move to the La Liga club this summer after a disappointing 2018-19 campaign saw him fall out of Spurs’ plans.

Trippier has enjoyed a bright start in Spain, picking up an assist in his La Liga debut as Atletico have made a perfect start to the season.
