Atletico Madrid fullback Trippier: I want to retire at Burnley

Atletico Madrid fullback Kieran Trippier wants to finish his career at Burnley.

Trippier got his break at Turf Moor under Sean Dyche, making 185 appearances for the club before leaving for Spurs.

Talking about Dyche, Trippier told the Burnley Express: "We have a great relationship. We're in contact all the time about family, football - he still (mentions) about taking me back one day.

"It'll happen one day for sure, I'll 100 per cent be back playing for them.

"I would love to retire there. That's my aim, to retire at Burnley. I want to play as high as I can for as long as I can but I'll know when the time is right.

"If I'm at Atleti for another two years, that'll take me to 32, and Burnley's the only club that I'd come back to England for.

After that I'd start my coaching badges and I'd love to coach at Burnley. I'd just love to go wherever Sean Dyche goes."
