Newcastle United fans will love Kieran Trippier response as defender discusses his new role
Despite his injuries, Kieran Trippier is keen to aid his Newcastle teammates.
Since his £12 million transfer to Tyneside in January, the 31-year-old has been a revelation.
Trippier said BBC Radio 5 Live that he will go to Brentford with the squad this weekend in the hopes of helping his colleagues stay in the Premier League this season.
Between now and the conclusion of the season, Kieran Trippier has pledged that he would do everything he can to aid his colleagues ‘on and off the pitch.’
Since his £12 million signing from Atletico Madrid, the Three Lions right-back has been a major part of Newcastle’s dramatic resurgence, netting two free-kick goals to help bring the Magpies out of the relegation zone.
Trippier’s on-field leadership abilities have also wowed Newcastle supporters – and Eddie Howe, who gave him the armband in the absence of long-serving captain Jamaal Lascelles.
The 31-year-old, however, broke his metatarsal in the 1-0 win against Aston Villa and will be sidelined for up to eight weeks, putting the Magpies’ survival chances in jeopardy.
Trippier is unfazed by the setback and has revealed that he will travel to Brentford this weekend to assist his teammates.
“It was a difficult moment (the injury),” he told BBC Radio 5 Live, “because of the way I started at Newcastle.”
These things happen in football. The most essential thing is that I am confident in my ability to recover from my disability. It’s just the way it is. Now that I’m a more experienced player, I know how to cope with it.
“Of course, I’ll be attending the game over the weekend.”
“Against West Ham, the guys had a nice result, and the most important thing for me is to support them and be a voice in the dressing room and around the training field.”
“I’d like to be able to play with my teammates and assist them, but I’ll be rooting for the boys.” They’re aware of this; now it’s all about assisting them.”
