Tottenham reluctant to let Victor Wanyama represent Kenya

Tottenham reluctant to let Victor Wanyama represent Kenya

Tottenham Hotspur could be about to make life difficult between themselves and one of their player’s international camp.

According to a report by Goal, Spurs are reluctant to let Victor Wanyama leave the club and join up with the Kenya national team, as they prepare for an important fixture against Ghana.

It is believed Tottenham want to keep their 27-year-old at the club and monitor his progress after he recently came back from an injury he picked up during the pre-season.

Wanyama was an unused substitute during their 2-1 defeat to Watford at the weekend, however, that is viewed as progression by Spurs and they do not want to take a chance on anything hampering that.

Sources close to the Kenya Federation have claimed that they have not yet received a proper answer from the Premier League outfit about their national captain, with one claiming that they were “100% sure that Wanyama will not come for the game.”

The Verdict:

Tottenham do not appear to be ready to risk any potential setbacks to Wanyama, including those that could come from representing his national team.

Spurs are keen to keep him in England as they look to continue to monitor his progress and want to limit any further problems.

The £27million-rated star, as per Transfermarkt, has struggled to replicate the form he initially showed following a move from Southampton, and Pochettino’s side are keen to do all they can to get him back to that standard.
