Mauricio Pochettino has refuted claims that Tottenham forced Kieran Trippier out in the summer.

Pochettino told reporters on Thursday that Trippier had been relaying messages via Harry Kane, and it was the defender who sealed his move from Spurs (h/t Evening Standard): The manager also highlighted that Trippier couldn’t contact him as his number had changed and the Argentine had no problems with the former Spurs star: “On Wednesday, when Harry Kane arrived back [from international duty] he said to me, ‘Did you get Kieran’s text?’ I said no because I changed my number.

The former Burnley defender struggled for form and consistency last season despite doing extremely well in the World Cup.

Kieran translated this message to me through Harry Kane.

The English right-back joined Atletico Madrid, which was a surprising move given that he was Tottenham’s first-choice right-back last season.

Trippier has started his spell with Atletico well and seems to be enjoying his football there.

Trippier also hit out at Daniel Levy and Pochettino last week, where he suggested that the pair wasn’t open about his future at the club.
