Manchester United legend Gary Neville has spoken highly of Tottenham Hotspur defender Kieran Trippier to The Times.

Trippier has been one of the best players for England at the ongoing World Cup in Russia.

The 27-year-old right-back has been playing superbly for the Three Lions and is creating a lot of chances for his teammates.

Former United and England international right-back Neville has praised Trippier, who earns £40,000 per week as salary at Spurs, according to Spotrac.com.

Neville told The Times about Trippier: “The wing-back system suits him. He’s tenacious, he’s got energy, he puts the ball into the box with great quality.

“It sounds crazy, but it’s unusual now to get a full back who can cross the ball like that. He’s exceptionally good at it.”

Quality footballer

Trippier has stepped up for Tottenham since the departure of his England international teammate Kyle Walker in the summer of 2017.

The former Burnley star was brilliant for Spurs last season, and the 27-year-old has taken that form to England.

A brilliant crosser of the ball, Trippier is great defending as well, and if England win the World Cup, then one of the main reasons will be his deliveries.
