Jan 28, 2020 1:08 PM

Kieran Trippier labeled Diego Simeone as the best manager in the world. 

"When people actually play for him, they realise how good he is. Obviously you've got some good managers: [Jurgen] Klopp, [Pep] Guardiola... Sean Dyche. You've got quality managers out there but he's certainly up there for sure. I think everybody knows how good he is, how passionate he is when he is on the touchline and when he's in training. He's unbelievable and I've got this opportunity to learn from him," said Trippier.

Trippier also discussed improvements in his Spanish as he settles with Atletico Madrid.

"My Spanish is coming on. I understand a lot more than I can speak. I've got the right people around me who are helping me and the staff have been fantastic. It's not going to be like a day to learn it, it's going to be a process, but I'm excited."
