Tottenham defender, Juan Foyth, hasn’t had the easiest of seasons in North London, racking up just seven appearances, four of those coming in the Premier League (Wikipedia).
After starring for Argentina at right-back in last summer’s Copa America, there were hopes that he could push Serge Aurier for the starting spot following Kieran Tripper’s departure.
However, Foyth picked up an injury which disrupted the start to his season and he has found himself out of favour since Jose Mourinho’s arrival at the club in November.
While the 22-year-old’s future at Tottenham is unclear for the moment, he has now admitted in an interview that he has no intentions of returning to Argentina before succeeding in Europe.
Speaking to Journalist Joaquin Tabares on Instagram (as relayed by Sport Witness and Info Cielo), the Spurs defender admitted he had a pact with his former Estudiantes teammate, Santiago Ascacibar, agreeing that they would go back to the club later in their careers.
Foyth is quoted as saying: “With Ruso (Ascacibar) we always say that we have to go back to Estudiantes, but now I think this is not the time, we are very young.
“We have to make our career here in Europe and go back at a time when we can give more to the club.”

I still rate Foyth quite highly and believe it was a little harsh the way Mourinho seems to have completely frozen him out after his mistake against Crystal Palace. I believe it would be a mistake to let him go, particularly now when his value his low, as he certainly has a lot of potential.
