Kieran Trippier explains his emphatic first impression of Mauricio Pochettino

The Tottenham right-back joined from Burnley over the summer.

Tottenham Hotspur full-back Kieran Trippier says his immediate impression of Mauricio Pochettino was an emphatic one - and that he thought he was a 'quality manager,' according to the Independent.

Indeed, the 25-year-old says he was impressed by how the Argentine addressed his team - both individually and when speaking to the group.

And Trippier told the Independent: "I thought he was a quality manager. The way he speaks, individually and to a group, and on the training field, where he is making everyone into better players and a good team."

Trippier's quotes sound very similar to Heung-Min Son's, with the forward also full of praise for Spurs boss Pochettino - both from a tactical and personal viewpoint.

The Argentine seems extremely popular among his players, which is quite a feat for a coach who demands so much fitness work from his squad.

Now is one of the Tottenham boss's biggest tests, of course, as it's been pointed out the north London side have only won two of their last seven in all competitions.

But a trip to Aston Villa on Sunday afternoon offers the perfect opportunity to get back on track.
