Tottenham Hotspur fans have been reacting on social media to the news that Marcus Edwards will seek an exit this summer after accepting his chance to break into the first-team under Mauricio Pochettino has gone, according to The Guardian.
Just two years ago, Spurs boss Pochettino likened Edwards to Barcelona ace Lionel Messi, but has only managed a 15 minute stint in a 5-0 League Cup win against Gillingham in 2016.
Edwards spent time on loan at Championship outfit Norwich City last season but failed to make an impact with the Canaries which resulted in his stint being terminated early due to ‘personal reasons.
The Telegraph reported at the time that Edwards had allegedly failed to arrive on time for a single training session and was also late for team meetings, along with a reluctance to integrate well with the squad.
Here’s a selection of views from your fellow Spurs supporters.
He’s done absolutely nothing to justify displacing Son, Dele or Eriksen though ??♂️

He made 1 start whilst on loan at Norwich. A ‘mini Messi’ should be tearing that league up. Obviously didn’t impress there either. Reputation only gets you so far.

His own ego has failed him, hope for his own good he turns his career around elsewhere

Couldn't get in the Norwich team on loan and clearly has some issues. If Poch doesn't want to keep him then that is all good with me. Poch will have tried to sort him out

That's a pity such a talent but obviously dosent realize how privileged he is. He will end up like Ravel Morrison a waste Rio Ferdinand said he was the most talented player he's ever worked with he's out in Mexico now #COYS

Lets not decide too soon. Look what happened with federicks , we have paid 22 million on aurier and got worse than federicks who was sold for less than 1 million

It's a shame if Marcus Edwards is leaving, he has the potential to emulate Messi but seems to be emulating David Bentley instead.

There are lessons to be learned with Marcus Edwards. Raw talent gets you noticed, but nothing compares to some good old fashioned hard work and determination. Hopefully for the boys career he sorts his head out and finds a proper home. Good luck! ??#hype #THFC #COYS
