Kieran Trippier has expressed his excitement to play for Simeone.

When asked how much of his decision was influenced by the presence of Diego Simeone, Trippier said: “He was massive.”

“From watching Atletico over the years you see what he demands of his team, the work ethic. They give everything for the team, the badge. It’s like a big family here and I wanted to be a part of this.

“For me, he’s one of the best managers in the world and it’s an absolute privilege to play for him and give everything I can for him.”

He added: “Obviously the Premier League is one of the best leagues in the world, but when Atletico Madrid were interested I didn’t think twice.

“It was a great opportunity for myself, my family, to come and live in Madrid and experience it.”

“Me and Mauricio (Tottenham boss Pochettino) had a conversation about my future. I explained there was a big opportunity at Atletico Madrid and it was an opportunity that I didn’t want to turn down.”

Trippier also said, “(It’s a source of) pride and a great challenge for me to come here.

“The most important thing is to get involved in the culture of the players and learn the language.
