Trippier pleased at Burnley choice after Man City berth

Kieran Trippier has no doubts about deciding to leave Manchester City for Championship Burnley on a permanent basis after spending a season long loan with the Clarets. The 21 year old had failed to make a first-team appearance during his time at City and was informed he had no long-term role at the Etihad Stadium following talks with boss Roberto Mancini.

"At Man City the manager said I would not be in his plans so I said OK," said Trippier in the Daily Mirror.

"As soon as Eddie (Howe) spoke to me and said he wanted me, I didn't have any second thoughts. I am delighted and there is nothing better than playing every week.

"I said when I signed my contract we will be in the play-offs and if we keep playing like that, we will be.

"The gaffer has done a lot for this team. He is a very good manager. Since I have come here I have settled in. He is a young manager and he understands me. He has done a lot of one-to-one with me. He is just a great manager. He believes in me as a young player and brought me in and trusted me.

"Hopefully I have shown what I can do. I have signed for three-and-a-half years and want to make it as a right-back. With Eddie as manager, he will lead the way."
