January 6th News Trippier attended the Goal Network program, which talked about playing in Atletico Madrid
How to defend Messi.
Trippier said: There is no way to be fair (confrontation).
It’s also interesting because Simeone is the manager and both he and Messi are Argentine.
Even Simeone would say before the meeting that (facing Messi) was basically a prayer.
You can’t do anything, organize or put up barriers to stop him, because Messi is unique.
Trippier said playing in other countries and leagues has learned a lot: I hope more British players do this (go abroad) because I have gained a lot of experience with Simeone.
I also learned a lot, went to enjoy the game, enjoy life in Spain, the weather, food and so on.
Those were unbelievable years.
