Tottenham fans on Twitter loved reading Bentaleb’s story of his exit

Tomorrow night sees the last two first leg ties in the Champions League round of 16 matches. Whilst the bigger of tomorrow’s games sees Juventus travel to Atletico Madrid, the other game pits Schalke up against Manchester City. In the latter of those clashes, Tottenham fans have the chance to watch Nabil Bentaleb in action.

Bentaleb is a name that the Lilywhites will be well aware of. The Algerian midfielder came through the ranks at Tottenham and enjoyed an impressive 2014/15 season under Mauricio Pochettino before being frozen out in the 2015/16 season. He was then loaned to Schalke, where that move eventually became a permanent one, and he still plies his trade in Gelsenkirchen now.

The Algerian has been speaking of time at Tottenham and has claimed that despite arguments with Mauricio Pochettino he holds nothing against the coach that sold him. Any interested Tottenham fan can read the midfielder’s interesting comments in The Independent and after seeing how he’s come across and matured in the last few years, a lot of them wouldn’t be against re-signing the Algerian.

The Lilywhites loved hearing of Bentaleb’s story and will be keen to see how the rest of their former midfielder’s career plays out from here.
