Kieran Trippier Wants to End Career At Burnley Football Club
Kieran Trippier has revealed he wants to retire at Burnley and would only return to the Premier League to play at Turf Moor under Sean Dyche. The England international is currently playing for Atletico Madrid in Spain and has impressed under Diego Simeone since joining the club last summer from Tottenham Hotspur.
Trippier spent four years at Spurs having developed into one of the Premier League’s best full-backs during a similar-length spell at Burnley. Sean Dyche frequently refers to having no favourite players except Trippier and it is clear the feeling is mutual, with the Bury born defender revealing he has spoken to the Burnley boss twice a week since leaving the club.
Trippier told the Burnley Express said, “We have a great relationship. We’re in contact all the time about family and football, he still mothers me about taking me back one day. It’ll happen one day for sure, I’ll 100 per cent be back playing for them. I would love to retire there. That’s my aim, to retire at Burnley. I want to play as high as I can for as long as I can but I’ll know when the time is right.
If I’m at Atleti for another two years, that’ll take me to 32 and Burnley’s the only club that I’d come back to England for. After that I’d start my coaching badges and I’d love to coach at Burnley. I’d just love to go wherever Sean Dyche goes.”
