Pochettino blames England for Trippier’s health problems
Tottenham’s head coach Mauricio Pochettino blamed the England national team for Kieran Trippier’s extreme problems with the health.
Trippier returned to the football field after a month of absence with a groin injury the night before, in the Premier League match against Southampton (3:1).
However, Kieran needed medical assistance closer to the end of the match, as a result of which he was replaced in the 87th minute. According to Pochettino, his ward is still suffering from the fact that the coaching staff of the England team didn’t show due caution during the 2018 World Cup.
The Argentinean expert said that it was the same problem that had happened to Trippier at the World Cup in the match against Croatia. Then Kieran left the field but he played against Belgium after three days already.
According to Pochettino, Trippier is still paying the price for that situation. The quality of the field in the match against Southampton left much to be desired and that gave an additional load on his inguinal muscles.
