Tottenham Hotspur fans may want to look away, after Kieran Trippier’s performance for Atletico Madrid last night once again received rave reviews.
Trippier helped Atleti come from 2-0 down against Juventus to claim a point, just after Tottenham had struggled against Olympiacos.
Mauricio Pochettino’s side had been forced to start with Davinson Sanchez at right-back, such are the current shortage of options in the position at Hotspur Way.
And Trippier showed Spurs what they were missing by putting in an excellent display for Diego Simeone’s side.
Trippier set up Atleti’s equalising goal, as he continued to impress in Spain.
The reaction to the former Spurs man’s performance was highly positive, and may see some supporters question why Trippier was sold.
Trippier looks mustard at Atletico— (@KNorman94) September 18, 2019
Trippier out here assisting the tying goal for Atletico while Poch's galaxy brain decides to leave Aurier at home and play Sanchez at RB. What the hell is the point?— Kartik (@yyz_kartik) September 18, 2019
Crazy how deadly Kieran Trippier can look in an elite defensive setup.— Gatsu (@abulmao) September 18, 2019
Simeone reformed Trippier— Stupendous cunt (@JPlayDirty) September 18, 2019
Trippier moving like Prime Zanetti on the pitch under Simeone, goes to show....— + (@MatipSZN) September 18, 2019
He actually looks so much better at Atleti so guess he’s having the last laugh— Salma (@sxlmss) September 18, 2019
Trippier might be the first English to Spain transfer that I actually like and recognize as a great one. Full of energy, owns the right flank, attacks well, defends solidly, someone that brings live to the team basically.— Clalalive (@Clalalive) September 18, 2019
Trippier playing as if he has been there for 5 years! #AtletiJuve— Łukasz (@iamtheluka) September 18, 2019
Kieran Trippier has been solid tonight. If he keeps playing like this he'll be back in the England XI for the next set of Euro qualifiers.— Tom (@TomReek17) September 18, 2019
It’s fair to say that Trippier’s form had dipped at Spurs throughout last season, but his move to Spain seems to have given him a new lease of life.
Tottenham still haven’t settled upon their replacement for Trippier, as a lot of options have been tried in the position.
Sanchez, Serge Aurier and Kyle Walker-Peters have all been given game time at right-back for Spurs so far this season.
