According to the Mirror, Kieran Trippier has blamed Tottenham Hotspur for his fitness woes at Atletico Madrid.

The Englishman endured an issue filled season in North London before moving to Spain last summer. A loss of fitness and form had seen him lose his spot in the team under Mauricio Pochettino.
