England manager, Gareth Southgate has admitted that he sees Kieran Trippier as a better option for the country than Trent Alexander-Arnold. He recently had his say while speaking to the press, and fans have been reacting.
According to him, a left-back cover was not needed against Italy, but the Germany game required a player like Kieran Trippier who is definitely better than Trent right about now.
Southgate added that how he manages his group of talented players at the World Cup will determine how far the country will go.
His words, “The other night [against Italy], we didn’t need the left-back cover, but against Germany we did because of the way we went with the team so we needed Chilly [Ben Chilwell] on the bench and we had Kieran who, at the moment, I feel his all round game is ahead [of Trent].”
“I didn’t want any player to sit in the stand for two matches, so I think the way we manage a group of people has been a big strength for us in the tournaments and we need to do that.”
