Mykhailo Mudryk posts classy message to Kieran Trippier after Newcastle star's horror show against Chelsea | The Sun
MYKHAILO MUDRYK posted a classy message to Kieran Trippier after the Newcastle star’s horror show against Chelsea.
Eddie Howe’s men were on course to book their place in the Carabao Cup semis when sub Trippier slipped up in the 92nd minute.
The England man attempted to head the ball back to Toon goalkeeper Martin Dubravka.
But Trippier failed to get any power on his attempt.
And that opened the door for speedy Chelsea winger Mudryk to pounce, with the Ukrainian firing home for 1-1.
The match then went straight to a penalty shoot-out.

And a caption read: “Kieran, just want to say to you, stay strong.
“Sometimes the s**t is happens, but I think you are a strong footballer no matter what.”
Meanwhile, Newcastle boss Eddie Howe has urged teammates and fans to rally around Trippier.
Howe said: "He has taken the group to a different level. After giving us so much, it’s now our turn to support Kieran.
“I’m sure he doesn’t feel fantastic because he prides himself on his technical excellence & the quality of his defensive work.
“He’s been a transformative signing for us and has glued the dressing room together. He’s been the heartbeat of our performances”.
