Some Tottenham Hotspur fans have taken to Twitter to share their thoughts on Juan Foyth’s first appearance of the season.

The 21-year-old missed the start of the new campaign after suffering an ankle injury during Tottenham’s Audi Cup win against Bayern Munich in pre-season.

Despite not having played a minute of action for his club side, Foyth was selected in the starting eleven for Argentina’s friendly match against Germany.

The defender played the full 90 minutes of the 2-2 draw at Borussia Dortmund’s Westenfalenstadion.

Germany took a 2-0 lead in the first half courtesy of goals from Serge Gnabry, who humiliated Spurs last week and Kai Havertz.

Argentina came back in the second half with Lucas Alario and Lucas Ocampos both finding the back of the net.

Foyth operated at right-back in the first half and as a third central defender in the second period and looked comfortable in both positions.

Tottenham have had issues filling the right-back slot this season with Kyle Walker-Peters, Serge Aurier, Davinson Sanchez and Moussa Sissoko all having played there.

Here’s how some fans reacted to Foyth’s display.

  1. Sorry if I don’t share the same level of enthusiasm for Foyth’s inclusion, which will in all probability be in the problematic right back position when he is recalled, For despite him not actually being a right back or for that matter even closely resembling one Foyth is being asked to play this position, Granted he can’t be any worse than KWP whose inexperience and lack of real quality are of genuine concern, or the hot-headed, haphazard and dangerously wreckless approach of Serge Aurier. Then of course their was the disastrous attempts by Davinson Sanchez which was frankly embarrassing for club, player, and fans alike, hell we even tried Moussa Sissoko in the troublesome spot and we all know how well that went! Call me fickle but when we stupidly sold off the only genuinely capable right back we had in Keiron Trippier, wouldn’t the sensible thing to be done was sign a quality replacement? Bit that would be too logical, instead it seems as though Spurs are attempting to stick a tiny plaster over a massive gaping wound, and hope it’ll be okay somehow. The simple truth however is that these inappropriate and crass ‘solutions’ just do not work in the manner intended. And as a consequence both team and squad suffers because of it. Tottenham are presently in a mess, and this will not simply just disappear with hopeful remedies to fix significantly greater issues. The simple fact is the longterm strategy of Levy’s approach to transfers has culminated in a squad that is both understrength imbalanced and with gaping holes in key positions. Levy simply does not understand what is necessary in footballing terms, and the daunting assertion of his negative influence is now sending the club awkwardly spiralling uncontrollably backwards, and in stark contrast to the developments of Tottenham’s new stadium and external business infrastructure. But surely the whole point of these developments was ti build a bigger, better more successful football club that benefitted from such attributes. Instead Levy and the board continues to neglect the core area and aspect of the club itself so vital to ensuring the success it craves and the strength to maintain it and that is a squad of quality to compete with the very best! For now we are absolutely nowhere near to being in that position, and are presently falling dramatically short on all competitive fronts. If THFC don’t wake up to the very real dangers and act upon it then it soon, then it will not only be a terrible season with no European football of any kind to look forward too in the next, but it will literally be back to the drawing board and a radical rethink on where to go from there? Worrying times for us Spurs fans indeed, worrying times!
