It is time for Pochettino and Levy to be brutal and cut the deadwood from this current Spurs squad, starting with the players who do not want to be there.
Let’s take a look at the three senior players I believe should not feature again for the Lilywhites:
Christian Eriksen –
Not only has he been poor this season, but Eriksen openly admitted way back in the summer window that he wanted to move on from Spurs (Ekstra Bladet). Why Tottenham didn’t sell him at a reduced price a few months ago, I am not sure. Recent reports claim that he has no intention of signing a new deal. Maybe if he was playing well, it would be worth keeping him in the starting XI. However, in my view, an out of form player who wants to leave should not be near the starting line-up.
Serge Aurier –
Not only has Aurier been out of form in recent games, but he has been an all-out liability for Spurs and Pochettino. A red card against Southampton and one of the worst and effortless displays of football I have ever seen against Bayern. He also claimed that he wanted to leave the club in the summer (Daily Mail). I don’t want to see him on the pitch again.
Victor Wanyama –
Wanyama came out this week and stated that it was unfortunate he did not transfer away from Spurs in the summer (All Africa). The Kenyan has also fallen way down the pecking order at Spurs and I would much rather see the likes of Oliver Skipp take his place.
