Out-of-favour Spurs player insists he ‘would like to stay’ despite lack of game time

Juan Foyth has now claimed that he would like to stay and fight for his future at Tottenham Hotspur if the club want to keep him.

Foyth was hardly given any game time after Jose Mourinho arrived at Spurs and a knee injury he picked up in training saw him sidelined since the restart.

Reports have indicated that the defender may have already played his last game for Spurs as the club are now ready to sell him (Football Insider).

Leeds United are said to be weighing up a move for the Spurs defender ahead of their long-awaited return to the Premier League next season (TYC Sports).

The former Estudiantes man had previously suggested that he is ready to leave Tottenham in order to play more regularly (TNT). However, Foyth has now spoken of his admiration of Mourinho and insisted that he wants to stay at the club.

Speaking to Argentine sports show Libero (as relayed by Football.London), he said: “If I have the chance to compete for a spot, I would like to stay at Spurs.

“Mourinho is very close to the players. Even though I didn’t play much, I think he’s a great coach and person. He wants to win at all costs.”

I doubt Foyth would want to spend another entire season of the bench if he does not get a guarantee of a certain amount of game time by Jose. However, it is a good sign that a player, who is seemingly out of favour with the Spurs boss, speaks so highly of him. That is perhaps a credit to Mourinho’s much-maligned man-management style.
