Tottenham Hotspur fans on Twitter have been responding to the latest news concerning Lilywhites full-back

This comes after Spurs podcast Twitter account @LastWordOnSpurs shared a post on their page relaying news originally published in an article from ESPN.

A nice easy one to start off with, who is Tottenham's record signing?

The article claimed that Doherty&8217;s future at the north London club is “uncertain with manager Jose Mourinho harbouring doubts over the defender’s ability to be a success” at Spurs.

This post then gathered a lot of replies from Spurs fans who were quick to share their thoughts on this latest news.

So, what did these Spurs fans have to say in response to this report on Doherty?

“Good – he’s been awful”


“Based on his current displays he is not good enough.”


“Miles from being good enough, that’s plain to see. Move him on.” 


“His 2nd half performance yesterday very much confirmed his future. Get outta here man.”


“He’s 29 so was never gonna be long term, and he’s not got it now. I’d take £10m for him this summer.” 


“I have my doubts that he’s an actual footballer.”


“He’s 29….long-term was never an option.” 


“Wow, that’s very insightful Jose”


Spurs signed Doherty back in the previous summer transfer window from fellow Premier League side Wolves for a fee of £15.12 million.

Looking at the replies to this post, it appears that these Spurs fans would be unbothered if Doherty were to leave the club in the upcoming summer transfer window, despite only joining the club in the previous summer window.

Do you think Doherty has been good enough for Spurs so far this season?





Considering how the 29-year-old has only managed to earn himself a rather uninspiring season rating of 6.71/10 for his performances in the Premier League so far this season, perhaps Mourinho reportedly having doubts about Doherty’s future at the club is fairly reasonable.

In our view, if Mourinho and the board at Spurs feel that Doherty still doesn’t have a future at the club by the end of the season, then perhaps they should try and move him on elsewhere.
