Tottenham Hotspur fans on Twitter have been sharing their criticism for Lilywhites winger Steven Bergwijn and his latest appearance for the north London club in their recent 2-0 win over Aston Villa in the Premier League. 

Goals from Carlos and Harry Kane secured all three points for Jose Mourinho side at Villa Park after losing 2-1 against Arsenal in their previous league fixture, which was followed by a 3-0 defeat against Dinamo Zagreb that knocked them out of the Europa League.

Test your knowledge of these Tottenham players' market values! How much do you think Hugo Lloris is worth?

During the second half of the game against Dean Smith&8217;s side, Bergwijn came on as a substitute to replace Giovani Lo Celso.

Despite only playing for just under half an hour of the game, lots of Spurs fans were not shy in sharing their criticism for the Dutchman’s efforts, with many flocking to Twitter to express their concerns.

So, what did these Spurs fans have to say in regards to Bergwijn’s display against Villa?

“Bergwijn with the worst cameo I’ve seen this season besides Winks’s one, this summer the best opportunity to cash him out”

@fxtbolsilva

“Bergwijn offers absolutely nothing…he needs to look at Moura and what he offers that team”

@Colescymru

“Steven Bergwijn is a Sunday league footballer”

@MarwanMakii

“Bergwijn has turned into a dud player after being quite good last season”

@SpursorNothing

“Still don’t rate Bergwijn.. what a weird signing he is”

@jake_fitzgibbon

“Bergwijn is so bad, just do something please”

@xthfcjamie

Spurs signed the 23-year-old, who is currently valued at £22.5 million, back in the January 2020 from Dutch side for a fee of £27 million (per Transfermarkt).

Looking at these from this bunch of Tottenham supporters, it seems that they were not blown away by what Bergwijn had to offer the team when he came on in the second half.

Do you think Bergwijn is good enough to play for Spurs?

Yes

Yes

No

No

According to WhoScored, Bergwijn’s match rating of 6.21/10 was only better than fellow substitute – though the Frenchman was afforded just 10 minutes at Villa Park.

That said, Bergwijn appeared to be no more ineffective than Lo Celso after replacing him, however, it would appear that he didn’t contribute greatly to Spurs’ attacking threat when looking at the team’s offensive stats. Therefore, it seems the fans’ reactions to his performance were perhaps justified.
