Over three quarters of Tottenham fans want Wanyama to stay

Over three quarters of Tottenham fans want Wanyama to stay

Victor Wanyama is almost a forgotten name at Tottenham. After making a blistering start to his career at White Hart Lane, his playing time was limited last season, and he is yet to feature this term. 

After making 35 starts in the 2016/17 season, the Kenyan could only manage ten starts last year, struggling with a hamstring and cartilage injury.

Tottenham have relied on mainstays Eric Dier and Mousa Dembélé in the midfield in Wanyama’s absence, occasionally turning to Moussa Sissoko and Harry Winks.

The 27-year-old’s persistent injuries may be a concern for manager Mauricio Pochettino, so we asked you whether you wanted the Kenyan to stay in north London or be sold, and these were the results:

A considerable 78% of fans want Wanyama to stay at the club, believing he is still a quality player. There is of course no doubt the ability of the player when he is fit, and that is why the fans ultimately want to show faith in him.

As Wanyama nears his return to Tottenham’s starting XI, fans will be hoping that he can’t put his injury woes behind him.
