Kieran Trippier has appeared in Premier League betting odds for Burnley, Tottenham and Newcastle.
Also an England international, Trippier has earned opportunities despite the Three Lions’ depth at his favoured right-back spot.
Not always at the forefront when weighing up betting decisions, it’s reasonable to deem Trippier an underrated player for both club and country.
Solid in defence and effective, if unspectacular, in attack, Trippier has moments of brilliance from dead-ball situations, but his attacking game is overshadowed by the playmaking ingenuity of Trent Alexander-Arnold or the physical prowess of Reece James.
He might not be the first name that comes to mind among players in Premier League predictions, but Trippier has still enjoyed a career which the vast majority of topflight players would envy.
Let’s learn a bit more about the former Burnley full-back, starting with a look at his net worth.
Kieran Trippier net worth has inevitably grown after signing for Newcastle.
As with most Premier League players, Trippier’s net worth has a wide range of estimations across the internet. Most come in around the £7 million mark, though others get into the £20 million ballpark.
Trippier has been around for a long time, amassing plenty in wages.
Unlike some of his England teammates, he won’t have raked in additional millions through endorsement deals, but there will have been some supplementary income from boot sponsorships and other partnerships.
It is hard to get an exact figure for the net worth of footballers.
Players of Trippier’s calibre have earned millions throughout their career, yet how their net worth places depends on various factors including business interests and potential other sources of income.
Experienced and having played for Tottenham and Atletico Madrid previously, Kieran Trippier salary is inevitably high. Spotrac claim the right-back is Newcastle’s highest-paid player at over £140,000 per week.
A lot of discussion centred around Trippier’s salary when he joined the Magpies in January 2022. Trippier is into his thirties, and was a high-cost signing for the newly-wealthy club.
While that figure might seem high, there are still 12 defenders earning more than Trippier in 2022-23.
One of those players is fellow England international Luke Shaw – like Trippier, Luke Shaw net worth has been a hot topic over the years.
Born in Bury, Trippier began his career with Manchester City, joining the academy at just nine years old. He progressed through the age groups with City, eventually signing his first professional contract in 2007.
While he was soon a regular in the reserve team, and toured with the senior group in preseason, Trippier was unable to break into the first-team squad and never clocked an appearance for City.
Instead, he joined Barnsley for a short loan in 2010, which was repeated a few months later for the entirety of 2010-11.
Impressing during that stint, Trippier joined Burnley for the 2011-12 campaign. Back near where he grew up, the right-back did enough for the Clarets to make the deal permanent in January of that season.
Consecutive selections to the Championship Team of the Year followed and Trippier was integral as Burnley gained promotion.
Despite interest from elsewhere, he stuck with the Lancashire outfit until June 2015.
The summer window saw a move to Tottenham, and while it took some time to become a regular, Trippier amassed over 100 appearances for the club prior to joining Atletico Madrid in the summer of 2019 for around £20 million.
Atleti’s first English player in almost a century, Trippier won his first trophy when the Madrid-based club lifted La Liga at the end of the 2020-21 campaign.
His stay in Spain was relatively short, however, as he returned to the Premier League with Newcastle in January 2022.
Trippier also represented England at four different youth levels. He made his senior debut in 2017.
Manchester City 2009-2012 – Zero appearances
Barnsley (loan) 2010 – Three appearances, no goals
Barnsley (loan) 2010-11 – 44 appearances, two goals
Burnley (loan) 2011-12 – 50 appearances, four goals
Burnley 2012-15 – 135 appearances, three goals
Tottenham 2015-19 – 114 appearances, two goals
Atletico Madrid 2019-22 – 86 appearances, no goals
Newcastle 2022-onwards – 10 appearances, three goals
England 2017-onwards – 37 appearances, one goal
That Free Kick
Kieran Trippier has just one international goal to his name. It was a special one.
England were in their first World Cup semi-final in 28 years, and Dele Alli won a free-kick in shooting range inside Croatia’s half. Trippier stepped up and delivered a David Beckham-esque, curling strike to give the Three Lions an early lead.
Of course, the match ended in heartbreak for England, and Trippier was forced off through injury in extra time, but that strike set off waves of euphoria around the country.
Fan parks erupted, pubs and front rooms across England were bouncing. Trippier is forever a part of English football history.
That Trippier had that moment was only appropriate given his performances at the tournament. Stellar for England throughout, he played a major role in the run to the last four even prior to that free-kick.
Months after the devastating loss to Croatia, Trippier admitted that he rewatched the goal plenty of times himself (just like many England fans).
“I’m not going to lie, I’ve watched the goal back about 100 times. I enjoyed that moment — but even now, it still hurts that we got beaten.”
