Trippier determined to have Newcastle challenging for trophies before retirement

Kieran Trippier wants Newcastle United positioned to be challenging for trophies before he retires.

Trippier, the first signing of this new era, is seen as a standard bearer and the La Liga title winner wants to help lay the foundations for Newcastle to one day lift trophies again.

"I'm ambitious," Trippier told Premier League Productions. "I want to go to the World Cup. I want to perform well but, on the club side, it's more, looking now, before I hang my boots up, if I help Newcastle get to the place where they want to be, I'll be absolutely delighted.

"OK, if I don't win anything, but the most important thing for me is getting to the club where it wants to be, where it wants to be challenging. If I've retired and they're challenging and they're near and thereabouts, winning stuff, then I'll be absolutely delighted that I've managed to help Newcastle avoid relegation and get to a position where they want to be, where they want to be challenging for titles. The club will get there. 100%. There's no doubt about that."
