Pochettino admits Tottenham fortunate to sign Trippier

Tottenham manager Mauricio Pochettino says the club were lucky finding Kieran Trippier.

The right-back has blossomed over the past 12 months, which included a superb showing for England at the World Cup.

And Pochettino believes Spurs were extremely fortunate to land Trippier, who they signed from Burnley for £3million in 2015.

"Sometimes things happen, sometimes you're lucky and of course when we signed Kieran, we were trying to challenge Walker.

"We improve them and give them better tools to improve, but sometimes we need luck too and he deserves the credit because he made the effort to improve and step up his career."
