Newcastle United defender, Kieran Tripper has been helping the Premier League club to fight relegation since he joined the club from Atletico Madrid. But his effort has to be put on hold due to a fractured born in his foot.

Kieran Tripper who left Tottenham Hotspur for Atletico Madrid on July 17, 2019, has always wanted to return to the Premier League since the 2020-2021 season. Initially, Manchester United wanted to sign him but Atletico Madrid turned down the offer.

However, when Newcastle United came for him, the Spanish La Liga side agreed to let him go for a transfer fee worth €15 million.

The fact that Kieran Trippier agreed to join Newcastle United at the point the Premier League club was rooted at the bottom of the league table, made many wonder why he left the Spanish La Liga giants for a relegation-threatened club.

However, Kieran Trippier has been able to prove that he is a player on a mission to rescue Newcastle United from the relegation waters as he has consistently helped the Premier League club to win matches since he joined the struggling side.

Since the arrival of the 31-year-old English right-back at Newcastle United, Trippier has scored two goals via free-kicks in four games. The two goals have helped the club in its fight for survival.

Since his addition to the team, Newcastle United have won three Premier League games and drew once. The newfound form has helped the club to move from the bottom of the league to the 17th spot on the league table.

While commenting on the steady progress of Newcastle United, the coach of the club, Eddie Howe said the club started enjoying a turnaround after a series of hard work.

“We’ve worked incredibly hard,” the coach said. “In the last three games, I don’t think there’s been any secret to how we’ve won the games.

“I don’t think they’ve been fluent footballing performances where we’ve played from back to front and all the things that we potentially want to do in the future but it’s been very disciplined, hard-working, a lot of energy, a lot of teamwork, team spirit, the togetherness that have made the difference for us.

“So big compliments for everyone for that because that’s sometimes the hardest thing to deliver consistently.”
