Alasdair Gold has said that Spurs fans may not need to worry about Djed Spence’s decision to delete all but one of his Instagram posts, revealing that the right-back has done the same on multiple occasions in the past.
Spence, who was instrumental in helping Nottingham Forest win promotion to the Premier League last season, is yet to make a single start for Tottenham since his switch to the North London club in the summer.
Some reports have suggested that the North London club could be open to loaning the youngster out in January (The Times).
It was under that backdrop of Spence’s potential frustration at his lack of game time, that the news regarding his latest social media activity hit the limelight.
It emerged earlier this week that the England Under-21 international had deleted all of his Instagram posts except one, including all references to Tottenham (Nottingham Post).
Some viewed that move as the right-back expressing discontent at his treatment at the club but Gold has now warned Spurs fans not to jump to conclusions.
The journalist said on his YouTube channel: “There was a load of stuff buzzing around about Djed Spence because he got rid of a load of stuff on his Instagram account and everyone went to the worst-case scenario there.
“I asked some people who know him and it’s apparently something he’s done a few times in recent years. He has a bit of a purge of his account and a reset.
“It has nothing about Spurs now, but it has nothing about Forest, Middlesbrough or any of his previous teams. What I’m told is he’s done it about three times. What it means, I have no idea. Whether it means anything I don’t know.”
Spurs Web Opinion
Spence’s decision to delete his posts might not mean anything but the optics of it are not good. I struggle to comprehend the logic of deleting all posts about Tottenham, including the one after joining the club and one after his debut, if the right-back did not wish to send a veiled message of discontent.
