Pochettino has no regrets over Trippier departure

Mauricio Pochettino has insisted he has no regrets over how he and Tottenham handled Kieran Trippier’s departure to Atlético Madrid in the summer and that there is no bad blood between him and the player.

Trippier suggested in an interview on England duty last week that Pochettino and the Spurs chairman, Daniel Levy, had kept him in the dark over their intention to sell him.

“I spoke to the manager about his plans and I didn’t get a yes and I didn’t get a no,” Trippier said. “So you get the impression. It’s disappointing. I gave everything for the club and I wanted to stay. I tried to speak to the chairman. I just didn’t really get an answer.”

Pochettino’s version of events is different, although he is at pains to say that the parting was merely a part of football and there were no hard feelings from his side.

“The only conversation when he [Trippier] arrived after the summer was when he came to see me, he asked me for a meeting, and said: ‘Gaffer, I think I have a good possibility and for different reasons I would like to accept the offer from Atletico Madrid,’” Pochettino said.
