Some Spurs fans on social media believe that Tottenham are going to regret their handling of Juan Foyth after it was confirmed that Villarreal had exercised the option to sign the defender on a permanent basis following his successful loan.

Foyth showed plenty of promise in his first couple of seasons at Tottenham but he fell out of favour at the club after Jose Mourinho replaced Mauricio Pochettino at the helm in November 2019.

During his season-long loan spell with the Yellow Submarine, the 23-year-old demonstrated the talent and the versatility that Spurs fans knew he possessed, playing a key role in the club’s road to Europa League glory.

On the back of Foyth’s impressive performances this campaign, it has come as no surprise that Villarreal have activated the €15m (£12.8m) option to land him permanently.

Some Spurs fans on social media were not pleased to hear the news, insisting that Foyth has been completely mismanaged by the club.

The crucial time for Foyth’s Spurs career was at the start of the 2019-20 season. The defender had an impressive end to the previous campaign and starred for Argentina in Copa America at right-back.

Many expected him to be our starting right-back after Trippier’s departure but an injury at the start of the campaign and the subsequent sacking of Pochettino came at a bad time for the 23-year-old.
