Croatian journalist Tomislav Dasovic has written in his column for Vecernji List that Ivan Perisic should leave Tottenham as soon as possible as the environment is not conducive to helping the experienced wide-man achieve success.
Following Ange Postecoglou’s appointment, many would have expected Perisic to be one of the first players out of the door at Tottenham this summer as the 34-year-old was not seen as a very good fit for the Australian’s high-intensity approach.
However, not only has Postecoglou kept the former Inter Milan at the club but he has also demonstrated that he counts on him, with the player coming on as a second-half substitute in all four of Spurs’ Premier League matches so far.
Perisic shone for Croatia during the international break, picking up two assists and playing a key hand in another goal as the East European nation thrashed Latvia 5-0 last week.
Dasovic thinks Ivan Perisic should leave Tottenham
However, Dasovic believes that the winger, who has 129 caps for his country, should leave the North London club as soon as possible.
He says that Perisic is ‘missing minutes, goals and trophies’ at Tottenham, which is why his career has suffered since joining them.
The journalist adds that the Lilywhites are a club on a ‘downward trajectory’ and the situation there is ‘unstable’. Finally, Dasovic asserts that it is ‘not a healthy environment’ for Perisic and he urgently needs a new challenge elsewhere.
Spurs Web Opinion
Spurs fans should not pay too much attention to these comments. Dasovic’s words must be viewed in the context of Perisic being one of Croatia’s superstars and the journalist being concerned that he will not be at his best when the European championship rolls around next summer.
