“Can’t believe”Four players we neglect still played for Tottenham Hotspur including £25m star

New boss Ange Postecoglou overhauled Tottenham Hotspur’s squad in the summer. The departure of Harry Kane may have taken up plenty of headlines but major reconstruction was already well under way. New goalkeeper Guglielmo Vicario, centre-back Micky van de Ven and new midfield talisman James Maddison had all arrived by the time the England captain left for Bayern Munich.

Spurs fans have wholeheartedly brought into Postecoglou’s style of play and are being rewarded with a stellar start to the season. The club sit top of the table after eight games and there is a sense of optimism over what the team could achieve this season, despite missing out on European football last term.

Ryan Sessegnon

While Destiny Udogie is earning rave reviews at left-back this season, it may be easy to forget about another left-sided player in the Spurs squad.
Sessegnon featured in 17 league games last season, scoring twice, before suffering a hamstring injury in February, which required surgery. The 23-year-old has spent eight months on the sidelines but has returned to light training as the club’s staff take a cautious approach to his recovery.

Djed Spence

Spence was regarded as one of English football’s most promising young players when he signed for Spurs last summer, following his breakthrough campaign at Nottingham Forest.n. However, the attack-minded Spence struggled to earn opportunities for Spurs, playing a total of 41 minutes across six appearances, before being loaned to Rennes in January.

In an effort to get his career back on track in the Championship, Spence signed for recently relegated Leeds United. However, he suffered an injury just nine minutes into his debut for the club.

Bryan Gil

The Spaniard is another who has had his time at the club blighted by injuries. Spurs looked to have picked up a potential gem when Gil arrived from Sevilla in 2021 but he has only been able to show glimpses of his ability. He secured a return to Sevilla for part of last season, where he provided four goal contributions in 17 league games.

Gil would have hoped that a change of manager would provide a fresh start but an injury setback has denied him the opportunity, though the winger is making progress with his recovery.
