The La Liga champions, Atletico Madrid, are in the final 16 of the Champions League.

Trippier, who formerly played for Burnley’s head coach Eddie Howe, faces a drastically different challenge at Newcastle, with the team now ranked 19th in the Premier League.

Since leaving Burnley, Trippier has maintained contact with Howe. “Very crucial, because he’s a wonderful manager,” Trippier stated when asked about Howe’s influence on his decision. Since I left, I’ve maintained in touch with him.

“I made it plain a few months ago that if the opportunity to return to the Premier League presented itself, I would jump at it,” the England international added. “It’s crucial for my family, and it’s also a fantastic opportunity.”

“I’m the type of gamer who enjoys taking on new challenges. Going to Atletico Madrid in the first place was a struggle, as was changing nations and leagues, and now I’m at Newcastle. I’m aware of their predicament. I’m here to assist in any way I can, both on and off the field.

“The manager and I get along swimmingly. This is a new task for me, and I’m looking forward to it.”

“He’s also one of the main reasons he came here. I know what he expects in games and what he requires in training.

“I’m here to fight and assist in whatever way I can. Players who have played with me and managers who have coached me are familiar with my personality. Whatever team I’m on, I give everything I’ve got. It’s going to be the same here in Newcastle.”

Trippier, who appeared in the Euro 2020 final, is adamant about continuing to play for England.

“He stated, “I’m still ambitious.” “I’m still hoping to make the England team.” I’m well aware that I’ll be up against Reece James, Kyle Walker, and Trent (Alexander-Arnold).

“I believe I am still capable of handling the pressure. I believe I am in excellent physical condition. For Newcastle, I need to put up a good show.”

Newcastle, on the other hand, is 19th in the Premier League and in severe danger of relegation. Trippier has stated that the challenge is what drew him in.

Trippier has already worked with Magpies manager Eddie Howe, who signed him from Manchester City while managing Burnley in 2012.

Trippier has been accused of joining Newcastle for the money, but Howe has quickly refuted this claim.

Trippier might make his FA Cup third-round debut against Cambridge United tomorrow. If not, he might start their next league game against Watford, who are also in relegation trouble.
