When Kieran Trippier moved from Atletico Madrid to Newcastle United this week, he raised a lot of eyebrows. Newcastle: An epic dispute has erupted over whether Kieran Trippier relocated for financial gain.
It’s understandable that many supporters are perplexed by the England international’s decision to forego a place in the Champions League knockout stages in favor of a desperate bid to avoid playing in the Championship.
However, the topic isn’t as straightforward as that, as Trippier had to consider a number of other considerations, many of which are decidedly human in character while deciding whether or not to return to the Premier League.
The talkSPORT debate that it created was quite something to behold with the footage amassing more than 1,300 retweets, 1,700 comments, and almost 5,000 ‘likes’ at the time of writing.
💰 𝗦𝗶𝗺𝗼𝗻: “Trippier is going there for one reason: money!”
😡 𝗧𝗿𝗲𝘃: “Shut up! If it’s about money why isn’t he going to China!?”
🇨🇳 𝗦𝗶𝗺𝗼𝗻: “Because China have capped wages! Do your research!”

Sinclair: “Why does it have to be about money? It’s a fantastic football club. You remember when Les Ferdinand, Ginola, Asprilla played. Don’t you think that’s what they’re going to try and do again?”
Jordan: “Of course, they are because they have a big bag of money. But for Trippier, he is going for one reason and one reason only. The economic package suits him at this stage of his career. That’s the end of the discussion.”
Sinclair: “So why is he not going to China? Shut up Simon, you’re talking rubbish. He would go to China if he wanted money.”
