Kieran Trippier played well in his first La Liga game for Atletico Madrid, adding an assist to go with the performance.

Former Burnley and Tottenham Hotspur full-back Kieran Trippier helped Atletico to their first goal of the season against Getafe. With a delightfully whipped ball that was nodded home by Alvaro Morata.

With such an immediate impact coming from the full-back, Atletico fans will be over-the-moon with their new man. It’s the Spurs fans however, we’ve had some fun with…


All jokes aside though…

The Tottenham faithful have a point. With an inexperienced Kyle Walker-Peters currently filling the full-back role and a want-away star in Christian Eriksen. Mauricio Pochettino may have gotten this transfer wrong.


Do you agree with Pochettino’s decision to sell Kieran Trippier? Do you feel Spurs should have signed a new right back in the window? Feel free to leave your opinions in the comment section below.
