FORMER Burnley defender Kieran Trippier says a return to Turf Moor would be “the perfect scenario”.

Trippier admits he would love to play in the Premier League again and says he is still in regular contact with Sean Dyche.

The England international left the Clarets in the summer of 2015 to join Mauricio Pochettino’s Tottenham Hotspur, and spent four years with the London club.

He signed for Atletico Madrid in 2019 and was part of Diego Simeone’s La Liga title-winning side last season.

Trippier says he enjoyed playing under all three bosses and admits he is considering a career in management once his playing days are over.

“I've learned a lot from all of them and this is something that I definitely want to do,” the defender told The Daily Mail.

“Who knows, maybe further down the line I would like to be a manager. Who knows at the end of my career, I could play for Dyche again and get a coaching role with him.”

Trippier has also enjoyed success on the international stage, scoring a memorable free-kick against Croatia in the 2018 World Cup semi-final.

The full back's first taste of top-flight football came at Turf Moor, and he credits the Dyche for launching his career.

Speaking in 2020, he said: “You've got quality managers (in the Premier League) but he's certainly up there for sure.

"Sean Dyche is a brilliant manager. From the first day he walked in he sorted my career out basically.

"From when I was young, stupid and going out, he just sat me down and said 'no more'.

"Unbelievable manager and I loved playing for him.”
