Harry Winks admits he regrets the fact that he has not been able to represent Sampdoria as much as the club would have hoped this season due to injury.
The club are currently rooted to the bottom of the Serie A table, having won just two games from a possible 26 all season.
They are 12 points from safety and it seems inevitable that Winks’ loan spell will end with Sampdoria’s relegation from the Italian top flight.
Despite this, the man himself has received some positive reviews since returning from injury in January following surgery on his troublesome ankle (Daily Mail).
In fact, Winks only made his debut for Sampdoria in the second half of the season due to his ankle problems, and has thanked the club for the patience and care they showed him during that time.
The Spurs academy graduate has started and played all 90 minutes for Sampdoria in every game since his debut on January 16th.
He told Gazzetta dello Sport: “I feel indebted to Sampdoria.
“I have regret, first of all because the club has always remained by my side and has always given me support, on and off the pitch.
“It was important to allow me to solve the problems with my ankle.
“There are fantastic people here, as are the fans, with a strong sense of belonging.
“I can only be grateful to the club. There have been many changes in the workforce since September, but there has never been a lack of support among us.”
Spurs Web Opinion:
I can’t help but wonder what would happen if Pochettino returned to the club this summer, with Harry Winks still on the books. Or what would have happened if Dele was only out on loan. Would Poch look to his old guard or would he want a clean slate?
