New Atletico Madrid signing Kieran Trippier has explained new Coach Diego Simeone was the main motivation behind his move to Spain.
The England international completed his move from Tottenham on Wednesday and also insisted it was always his intention to play abroad.
“This is an amazing feeling – I’ve always wanted to play abroad and what a place to play, in Madrid,” Trippier said upon his unveiling.
“They have a fantastic team and an unbelievable manager and I’m just looking forward to getting on with it now and meeting the team.
“We know they’ve been to some major finals, they’ve done so well in La Liga over the years – they have a quality team and a magnificent Coach.
“Something that I can’t work to do is work with the manager, learn from the manager and help the team to be a success in the future.
“We’ve got some world class players in the team. The manager, you can tell how close he has been over the years with the squad.
“I cannot wait to be part of this and obviously learn from the manager and work under him, I’ll do everything for the team and give my all and for sure I’ll do that for Atletico.
“I love to win and give 110% in every game.”
