History beckons for Pitch Representation’s Kieran Trippier, as he and Tottenham Hotspur prepare for the Champions League Final against Liverpool in Madrid on Saturday.
It will be Trippier and Tottenham’s first time on Europe’s biggest stage, having progressed following a miraculous comeback in the second leg of their semi-final over Ajax.
Trippier, who has featured in seven games for the Spurs on their way to the final, was excited for the opportunity and said preparation has been strong.
"Watching it from such a young age, the Champions League is the biggest club final you can win, to win this for this club and everything that we have given this season, the circumstances we have had, Wembley, injuries, it will be a good way to finish the season,” said Trippier.
“It has been a difficult season with injuries. I have had different types of injuries, it feels like these three weeks have enabled me to recover and manage it properly without so many games. There's one big game left, if I play I can give everything to the team to help us win.
"The last few weeks has been about training hard and giving everything in training and showing the manager that you deserve to play."
It caps a big 12 months for Trippier, who played a pivotal part in guiding England to the semi-finals of the FIFA World Cup last year, and was subsequently named in the tournament team.
On Saturday, he’ll get an opportunity to claim the biggest prize in club football.
From the Pitch Rep team – Best of luck Kieran!
