And we sold this man smh.”Another said: “Trippier had one bad season like a lot of players do. People gave him s***! Trippier was a good player and would still be better then aurier and KWP.”A third tweeted: “We’re playing a centre-back, who’s not even that good at centre-back, at right-back. You, as they say, love to see it.”And a final fan fumed: “Trippier pocketing Ronaldo whilst we have to witness Sanchez get spun round like a yo-yo at every given opportunity.”3 Ex-Spurs man Trippier managed to keep Cristiano Ronaldo off the scoresheet in a Champions League matchCredit: AFP or Licensors3 Trippier, left, was acting like a winger against Juventus while Davinson Sanchez, right, played a more reserved roleCredit: Opta Meanwhile, we’re playing a centre-back, who’s not even that good at centre-back, at right-back.
