For a star that always seems to fail to shine when given the chance, the name Marcus Edwards always seems to be on the lips of Tottenham fans and the club alike.
There is something about this raw and talented winger that draws people in, willing him to make the next step up in his game.
When arriving at the club, manager Pochettino dubbed him a ‘mini-Messi’, and since then, young Edwards has really failed to make the grade.
Loaned out to Norwich City last season, Edwards was actually sent back to Tottenham early, with reports that his bad attitude was causing problems at the Canaries.
After snatching at his big chance to impress the gaffer, and playing very few minutes out on loan, it seemed that Edwards’ time may be done in North London.
Pochettino is hardly one for handing out third and fourth chances to players who do not put in the effort.
However, towards the end of the transfer window, Edwards was sent out on loan again, this time making the trip all the way to Excelsior in the Eredivise.
A video has emerged of the young winger’s debut for his new club, and his insane dribbling ability cannot be questions.
But can the youngster improve his end product, his attitude, and his work-rate to prise his way into Poch’s plans?
