LaLiga: Kieran Trippier’s qualities shine through
Diego Simeone only had Santiago Arias to play right-back after Juanfran left for Brazil – until Kieran Trippier arrived.
The Englishman has proved an instant success since making the move from Tottenham to Atletico Madrid this summer.
He has ousted Arias with ease thanks to his qualities both on and off the ball.
Trippier‘s display against Juventus, where he wasn’t afraid of whipping balls into the penalty area, played a huge part in Atletico‘s comeback.
Return to the Wanda Metropolitano
Trippier doesn’t have particularly good memories of his new home.
Despite his solid away performances, Trippier‘s home displays have been the most impressive. It’s just a shame that no one was able to profit from his crosses during the goalless draw with Celta Vigo on Saturday.
Trippier‘s next chance to shine comes in Palma on Wednesday as Atletico face Mallorca in LaLiga Santander‘s first round of midweek fixtures.
