Harry Winks is a real fan favourite amongst the Tottenham fans in the Transfer Tavern…
Last season was a breakout campaign for the Englishman, emerging as an increasingly important member of Tottenham’s first team squad – before a cruel injury ended his campaign early.
Such was the excitement and focus on the midfielder, the Tottenham fans in the pub have spent the last few months desperately waiting for his return – and during Tottenham’s pre-season game against PSG – he finally returned to the pitch.
He has since been reflecting on the return for Tottenham’s official website, and he certainly didn’t hide his joy.
Winks said: “I can’t put it into words. It’s been a long time coming and it’s been amazing to return, it really has”.
He was quick to focus on the game, though, stating: “I’ve worked hard with the help of the medical team and when you go out there, the focus is on winning the match and that’s all I was thinking about”.
Winks’ return is sure to generate a lot of excitement amongst the Spurs fans in the Transfer Tavern. He earned 21 appearences in the Premier League last season, the majority of which came from the bench, and next year he will be expected to make a further step up.
In Mauricio Pochettino, he has one of the Premier League’s best managers when it comes to developing young talent, and with his injury woes now behind him, the focus can go back on to his development.
