Marcus Edwards has spoken about his time at Tottenham Hotspur and working under Mauricio Pochettino.
Edwards joined the Spurs academy aged eight and represented England at under-16, under-17, under-18, under-19 and under-20 levels (Sky Sports).
He left north London having made just one senior appearance for the club which came against Gillingham in the EFL Cup in September 2016 at White Hart Lane (transfermarkt).
Pochettino likened Edwards, who was 17 at the time to a young Lionel Messi but insisted the winger has a long way to go to fulfil his potential.
Sadly, Edwards’ Spurs career never progressed beyond the cup appearance against Gillingham.
His attitude was questioned by Norwich City boss Daniel Farke during a failed loan spell at Carrow Road and was terminated early with personal reasons given as the explanation as to why he had returned to North London (BBC).
Edwards admits that while he does not dwell on his time at Tottenham he does wish he had made more appearances for his childhood club (iNews).
Some Spurs fans have taken to Twitter to share their views on Edwards’ comments, here’s what they had to say:
