A Tottenham fan and pundit? Watch out for Wanyama’s decisions
Every Tottenham fan has been very anxious about what could happen to Victor Wanyama. The Kenyan player has been warming the bench pretty much ever since Jose Mourinho started managing the team. The new manager has been very skeptical about the midfielder and is trying to play it safe with him going forward.
Tottenham fans have already criticized Mourinho for not letting Wanyama play. Sure he may have had some mishaps in the past such as being suspended, but that was more than 5 years ago, and without him, the team could lose some serious dynamic.
The player himself is also starting to get fed up with the new manager’s attitude as he was hoping to be transferred to a new club, namely Brugge. Almost everything had already been set up, but the negotiations fell flat at the last second due to financial and logistical issues.
Wanyama brings fans to Tottenham
Wanyama is one of the few Kenyan soccer players that managed to join a foreign league, and a popular one at that. His fans back at home are supporting him with tooth and nail, which automatically makes them Tottenham fans.
This was especially relevant last year when there were rumors about Kenya banning sports betting in the country. Every Kenyan that was interested in sports was rushing to their local sports-books to place bets and most of them were choosing Tottenham due to the already acquired knowledge about Wanyama.
Should the Kenyan midfielder be forced out the team, it is likely that thousands if not tens of thousands of fans are going to disappear alongside him.
Wanyama could find a new home
If you’re a Tottenham fan and use their rosters for your fantasy teams, you’ll most likely not find Wanyama there in the nearest future.If you’d still be interested in the Kenyan midfielder, you can expect to find him in Celtic, a team he used to play with in 2011. The club is reportedly very interested in signing Wanyama back up again, and considering the issues that were found in the Brugge deal, Celtic may have what it takes to convince Victor.
