After moving from Burnley to Spurs in the summer of 2015, Trippier played for the team for four seasons, becoming a premier right-back throughout that time and earning a spot in the England squad.
But in his last season with Spurs, he suffered a serious decline, with Mauricio Pochettino’s team losing multiple times due to his defensive errors.
After all, Trippier only paid £20 million (BBC) to join Atletico Madrid, where he learned from Diego Simeone to become a better defensive player and contributed significantly to the team’s 2020–21 championship victory.
Did Tottenham sell Kieran Trippier far too early?
With his January 2018 move to Newcastle United, the former Tottenham player has established himself as one of the league’s best right-backs.
Referring to the Magpies star as the best player in the world for his position, Hutchinson placed him in his Team of the Season thus far. He said to ESPN FC, “Trippier is the best right-back in world football.”
Along with James Maddison, Destiny Udogie, and Micky van de Ven, the analyst picked three other Spurs players in the starting eleven.
In retrospect, we might conclude that Pochettino erred in allowing the England international to leave back in 2019. Tripper has undoubtedly advanced greatly over the past few years.
