Football is finally returning to our screens.

The Bundesliga is set to be the first of the five big leagues to make a comeback since all football was suspended back in March. However, to no-one surprise, football fans will not be in attendance as the games are set to be played behind-closed-doors for the remaining fixtures. (Telegraph)

Many supporters across Europe will be tuning in to watch Bundesliga for the first time and will need a club to follow. So, we have gathered all the latest former Spurs players currently playing in Germany that might give you a reason to follow a club.

Benjamin Stambouli – Schalke 04

Stambouli was not a fan favourite among fans in his one year at the club after joining from Montpellier in 2014. He went on to make 27 appearances for the club and only scoring once in the Europa League. (Transfermarkt)

Now in 2020, the Frenchman is playing his trade at Schalke featuring in 82 games, failing to score or assist in any domestic league games. The 29-year-old has only made 10 appearances this season before sustaining a foot injury in November and was out until the suspension of the league. (Transfermarkt)

Lockdown could have given Stambouli the perfect chance to regain fitness and could be involved in the game against Borussia Dortmund.

Keanan Bennetts – Borussia Monchengladbach

Bennetts never made a single senior appearance for Spurs but did feature 32 times for the Under-23s, netting eight goals and eight assists. (Transfermarkt)

Since his move to Bundesliga, Bennetts has also failed to feature for Borussia Mochengblach senior squad but appeared on the bench in the opening game of the 19/20 season.

The chances of Bennetts appearing in these final few games are very slim but watching Monchengladbach allows you to witness a title race with them six points behind leaders Bayern Munich and will face Frankfurt on May 16.

Milos Veljokvic – Werder Bremen

Veljokvic failed to get an opportunity at Spurs – loaned out twice – and before being moved on in 2016 to Werder Bremen. (Espn)

The Swiss international broke into Werder Bremen’s first team and has since gone on to make 108 appearances for the Bundesliga club, with 15 of them coming this season. (Transfermarkt)

Werder Bremen are currently in a relegation scrap, as they sit eight points from safety and begin their grand escape on May 18 against Bayer Leverkusen.

Ismail Azzaoui – VFL Wolfsburg

Ismail Azzaoui was quickly moved on in 2015 before making a single appearance for Spurs’ senior team and only featured five times for Under-23’s, scoring just once. (Transfermarkt)

Within two years in Germany, he was loaned out to Willem II in the Netherlands in the 2017/18 season, making 24 appearances and netting four goals. (Transfermarkt)

The reason that he features on the list is that in the final few games before the season was interrupted Azzaoui made three appearances on the bench.
