Football’s all-time great: who is it?
Since ancient times, debates have been ongoing, with various figures such as Lionel Messi, Johan Cruyff, and Pele offering varying responses.
Regardless of how, Kieran Trippier responded differently on the Sky Sports Premier League YouTube channel.
When asked to name the first player that sprung to mind when discussing the GOAT (Greatest of All Time), the Newcastle star was asked to play a word association game.
Disregardi players like Messi and Cristiano Ronaldo, Trippier Choosing to name his former Tottenham teammate Mousa Dembele as the best player he’s ever seen.
Dembele, The Greatest
Trippier mentioned the Belgian who cost £11 million to leave Spurs.
“All right, here’s The GOAT,” Someone asked Trippier.
“I’m going to knock Dembele off.” You could certainly mention Messi or Ronaldo, but this guy was the greatest of all time when we were teammates at Tottenham. To be honest, it was terrifying what he could do with a football during practise and games. He’s always up there with the best players you’ve ever played with, in my opinion, said Trippier.
