Wanyama’s knee continues to curtail his Spurs career

Victor Wanyama’s knee continues to be a concern for me as a Tottenham Hotspur fan.

The midfielder did not travel with the rest of the Spurs squad for the Audi Cup matches in Munich after he told the medical staff following Monday’s training session that he felt some discomfort in his knee (Spurs official).

Wanyama featured in all three of Kenya’s African Cup of Nations fixtures this summer, playing every minute of each match (transfermarkt). However, his knee has once again frustratingly ruled him out of action for Tottenham when he should be building his fitness ahead of the upcoming season.

He made the switch to White Hart Lane from Southampton for £11million in 2016 (BBC) and had an impressive first season at the club when he made 36 Premier League appearances.

In the last two seasons, he has played less games in the two campaigns combined due to his ongoing injury issues.


With Tanguy Ndombele arriving at the club this summer along with the impressive form of Moussa Sissoko and Harry Winks together with the emergence of Oliver Skipp it may be best that Wanyama looks elsewhere to try and get his career back on track.

While Spurs will take to the field to face Bayern this evening, Wanyama will have once again been at Hotspur Way to undergo assessments.

Have something to tell us about this article?


  1. Wanyama’s reportedly said that he wants to stay at Spurs, so it looks as if he can be added to the unshiftable deadwood, ‘earning’ seventy-odd thousand per week for doing absolutely nothing. We used to be able to palm off some of our duds on Stoke (Palacios and Wimmer in recent years), but that road’s closed now, so we’re stuck with yet another one-season wonder for as long as he chooses to stay – modern football!

  2. He plays every minute of every game for Kenya but when it comes to Spurs its ‘My Knee Hurts’= please just retire him if he has no knees left or sell him off if he is not a crock he and he is just a skiver and a slacker.
