Kieran Trippier's son captured in awe of Mauricio Pochettino's son
ORLANDO -- Kieran Trippier has revealed that a mesmerised picture of his son prompted a message from his Tottenham manager Mauricio Pochettino.
Trippier has described Pochettino as the "best manager in the world" but based on this picture of his new son Jacob, taken at the final home game of last season, he is not even the biggest Poch fan in the family.

And Trippier says the picture of Jacob, gazing in awe at Poch, has caused a stir.
"A lot of people were tweeting me about that! Even the manager sent me that himself, having a little bit of banter," Trippier said on Friday in Florida.
Trippier also revealed that he will soon be getting a tattoo of Jacob on his right arm, although it remains to be seen if his manager will also make the cut.
"I'm going to get him on there, but my wife's said 'what happens if we have more?' So I don't want to get too many faces on me," he said.
