Mauricio Pochettino says Kieran Trippier tried to contact him to describe he felt his words were»twisted» while on international duty, when he seemed to criticise the club’s handling of his departure.
The England right-back claimed last week that he»didn’t get an answer» if he asked the chairman Daniel Levy about his future in the summer, before a #22m switch to Atletico Madrid.
Pochettino revealed Trippier delivered a text to him but he did not receive it leaving Harry Kane to pass onto the message to the player’s return from duty.
The Spurs boss explained:»I did not find [Trippier's remarks ], but I learned about it. I can explain how I feel. We had a dialogue at which he said he was going to move to Atletico Madrid — nothing longer.
«Yesterday (Wednesday) if Harry Kane came back he said to me’did you receive Kieran’s text?»’ I said’no’ since I changed my number. Perhaps because he doesn’t have the amount that is brand new.
«Since he think his words were twisted — I don’t understand nothing more. Kieran translated this message through Harry Kane to me. He wanted to inform me. But I’ve got no problem with Kieran.
«In soccer decisions occur and gamers move from one club to another. We need to proceed and what happened happened and be happy there and he needs to consider Atletico Madrid.
«There’s no point to speak about if something happened or did not happen. The truth is who is appropriate in all this process, although 1 reality? There is no point in talking. However, I keep very good memories out of him.»
«After the summer he came to visit me, he asked me for a meeting and stated’gaffer, I think I’ve a good possibility and also for different reasons I’d like to accept the deal from Atletico Madrid’.
«He didn’t ask me — just hauled whether the team were going to take the deal. Nothing more.
«It was not a dialogue — you want me? Or you do not want me? It was obvious. When I had plenty of options, Davinson Sanchez, together with Serge Aurier, Kyle Walker-Peters he played the final. However he played with the final. My actions talk over my mouth.»
