“Dad, it’s too much, why did you win?” Newcastle captain Trippier’s son cheers for PSG+Mbappe, but it’s a nervous breakdown

October 5, 2023 | by

Kieran Trippier (33-Newcastle) didn’t get the support of his son.

Newcastle United cruised to a 4-1 victory over Paris Saint-Germain (PSG) in the second leg of their UEFA Champions League Group F match of the 2023-24 season at St. James’ Park in Newcastle, England on Friday (May 5).

Newcastle, who drew 0-0 with AC Milan in the first leg, outplayed PSG in the second leg to earn a 1-1 draw. Newcastle tops Group F, with PSG in second, AC Milan in third, and Dortmund in fourth. It’s not what you’d expect.

Newcastle vice-captain Kieran Trippier started at right back. He blocked attempts from Kylian Mbappe and Gonzalo Higuain. In the fifth minute of the second half, when Newcastle took a 2-0 lead, Trippier assisted on Sean Longspur’s wedge goal.

It’s been 21 years since Newcastle returned to the European Champions League. It took them a whopping 7525 days to win a Champions League game. Newcastle qualified for the Champions League last season by finishing fourth in the English Premier League (EPL) and easily defeated favorites PSG in a historic Champions League home game.

The 60,000-plus Newcastle home fans at St. James’ Park were ecstatic. So were the players. They stayed on the pitch long afterward to celebrate the victory 토토사이트.

But the Trippier sons were different. “I’m upset that PSG lost to Newcastle,” Trippier’s son, a well-known PSG and Mbappe fan, told Canal Plus while wearing a PSG jersey over his Newcastle jersey. The Mbappe jersey his son wore was one that Trippier requested and received from Mbappe himself.

The tension between father and son is also evident on Trippier’s social media accounts. Trippier looks down at his son in his Newcastle training kit, while his son looks up at him in his PSG Mbappe jersey.
