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…

This might not go down well, but… I’ve got a bad feeling that we shouldn’t of sold Trippier.
Especially when we never replaced aswell.

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.
