Having lost ground in the title race over the course of the weekend, it’s fair to say the Tottenham Hotspur fans in the Transfer Tavern are in a sullen mood at the moment.
Well, as our north London locals are drowning their sorrows, reports from the Sun have caused even more concern of late. They claim some of Spurs’ players are unhappy at the fact they will have to travel to Hong Kong at the end of the season to play in a friendly match.
After the season concludes on May 21st away at Hull City, the Lilywhites will be taken to the Far East in order to contest a friendly. For many of the players, the long-haul journey comes just weeks before June’s competitive international games, reportedly causing some discontent.
Daniel Levy is understood to be keen on raising the club’s profile in Asia as he attempts to secure lucrative naming rights for their new ground.
While the fans in the bar appreciate the need for this kind of thing, they hope some of their best players aren’t too annoyed…
