Spurs news: Kieran Trippier admits season has not been great for him at Tottenham

Tottenham right-back Kieran Trippier has admitted the season has not gone well for him after a great World Cup with England.

The Englishman was one of the standout performers for the Three Lions in Russia as England reached the semis, however, his Tottenham form has been poor.

Trippier has been at fault for several goals and even scored an own goal against Chelsea recently.

Speaking to Sky Sports, the right-back added he could have done better this season:

“I could have done a lot better than what I have done, I am the first to admit that.

“I look at all the games I play in and review them. I have had chats with the manager and other players too, but it’s all about learning and trying to do as best as I can in every game.”

The Englishman also revealed why his form hasn’t been great and claimed he was trying different things this season:

“I was trying things that I shouldn’t do, taking risks, I have been at fault for a few goals this season and made a few errors.”

Sticking to the basics

Trippier added that going back to the basics would help him play better, and the defender also questioned some of his decisions during the games.

The former Burnley star added that he has the right manager on his side and his teammates also support him.

Trippier further claimed that his form has been better recently and he hopes to carry that forward for the remainder of the campaign.

The 28-year-old has played 30 games for Tottenham this season with one goal and an assist to his name.

Trippier hasn’t been involved in a tough fight to keep his place in the team with Serge Aurier spending a lot of time on the treatment bench.
