Tottenham Hotspur defender Toby Alderweireld believes that the impact of the club’s players at the World Cup proves that we are on the right path.
Spurs fans will be more bothered about Toby’s contract situation rather than his assumptions about the future of the club.
He currently earns £50,000-a-week at the north London club and is said to be refusing to budge on his £150,000-a-week wage demands. The club reportedly made a final offer of £110,000-a-week, earlier this year but the defender turned it down.
Alderweireld’s situation is complicated by the nature of his contract, which is due to expire in 2019 but has a clause that enables the club to extend it by 12 months. However, the same clause also allows Alderweireld to leave next summer for £25.4 million before the final 14 days of the transfer window, so this transfer window represents Spurs’ last chance to achieve his full market value, which would be more than £50 million.
The Belgian helped his side to a 2-0 third-place finish against England and told the media: “It is something for the club and the fans to be proud of, you can see that for the past few seasons,”
“Of course everybody will say you didn’t win anything yet but our level every season is top four and we are extremely consistent. You can see at this World Cup. The players are at a good level and being decisive players for their countries.
“Spurs are going the right way.”
