Tottenham Hotspur fans have taken to Twitter to give their reaction to recent comments from manager Mauricio Pochettino about Kieran Trippier.

Spurs manager Pochettino has told The Guardian that he did not force Trippier out of the club in the summer transfer window.

The Argentine has explained that it was the England international right-back who decided to leave the North London outfit for Spanish club Atletico Madrid.

Pochettino told The Guardian: “The only conversation when he [Trippier] arrived after the summer was when he came to see me, he asked me for a meeting, and said: ‘Gaffer, I think I have a good possibility and for different reasons I would like to accept the offer from Atletico Madrid.

“He didn’t ask me nothing. He only communicated whether the club were going to accept the offer. Nothing more. It wasn’t a conversation – Do you want me? Or don’t you want me?”

Moving on

According to BBC Sport, Atletico paid Tottenham a transfer fee of £20 million in order to secure the services of Trippier in the summer transfer window.

Kyle Walker-Peters has now established himself at right-back for Spurs, having played 242 minutes in the Premier League so far this season, according to WhoScored.

It remains to be seen if the 22-year-old can be as good as Trippier in the role in the coming years, but the early signs are very good and positive.
