Kieran Trippier says he felt fierce Tottenham fans while at Burnley

The Tottenham Hotspur summer signing has heaped praise on his new fans.

New Tottenham signing Kieran Trippier says he felt the full force of the fierce White Hart Lane atmosphere while playing for Burnley, according to the club's official website.

Indeed, Burnley took the north London side on no less than four times last term, allowing Trippier to experience supporter noise at its loudest.

And the 24-year-old is naturally delighted to now have those supporters on his side, having joined Tottenham from Burnley this summer.

Trippier moves to the Lane as a right-back, where Kyle Walker has been in desperately poor form in recent months and DeAndre Yedlin appears to have been deemed too inexperienced by Mauricio Pochettino.

He told Tottenham's site: "I can remember walking out of the tunnel last season and thinking what a fierce atmosphere it was at the stadium.

"Even during the game you’re aware of the support by the Tottenham fans and it’s a great environment to play in. I’m really looking forward to getting started."


As Trippier rightly observes, the White Hart Lane atmosphere proved a match-winner at several points last season. During the 5-3 win over Chelsea on New Year's Day, the Tottenham faithful were crucial in spurring their side on.

And, as the north London derby was won, Arsenal were blown away by Spurs fans.

At the same time, however, Trippier and co will have to inspire their supporters. At the start of last season, Tottenham's average home form left the White Hart Lane crowd dull and noiseless.
