Aston Villa defender Mings full of praise for England teammate Trippier

Aston Villa defender Tyrone Mings is full of praise for England teammate Kieran Trippier.

Mings says he is happy having Atletico Madrid right-back Trippier alongside him at left-back.

When asked about playing alongside Trippier, Mings said on Tuesday: "It was great. He's a really - I wouldn't say underrated - but he's not necessarily flamboyant is he?

"To play alongside and to be around, he's a really great guy and a really great defender. He's got a lot experience, coming off the back of a really successful season as well.

"He certainly helped me, as well as everybody else who played but yeah, I love playing with him."
