Fans from all corners shared a laugh at the announcement by Newcastle of Kieran’s signing.
The England full-back arrives at St James’ Park from Atletico Madrid for £12m plus add-ons after weeks of speculation.
Newcastle had just announced their first signing, and Trippier was pictured in a Toon shirt. Fans were stunned at this obvious error.
Trippier’s attempt to capture the classic “point to the badge” snap is synonymous for new signings.
Former Tottenham player appears closer to his armpit than the sleeve sponsor. Fans mocked the Newcastle badge and player in the tweet replies.
One wrote: “Let’s hope he can pick out a man better than he can pick out the badge.”
“Why is he pointing to his armpit?”Ask for a second.
The third was also mentioned: “Missed the badge a bit lad.”
Another optimistic fan shared this: “Pointing at signing number 2 just off camera.”
Trippier’s decision not to join the La Liga champions in order to fight Newcastle for relegation is certain to cause a lot of controversy.

“I really enjoyed my time in Madrid, but when I became aware of interest from Newcastle United, and having worked with Eddie Howe before, I knew this was where I wanted to be.
“Although I am aware that there are many challenges ahead, I also know the demands of Premier League and what an incredible club it is with so many talented players.
