Lots of Tottenham Hotspur fans have been discussing a news update involving Jack Clarke that emerged on social media.
Football Insider has recently reported about Clarke’s situation, saying that the youngster’s loan deal at Stoke City looks set to be terminated as he has suffered an Achilles injury that could sideline him for the next six weeks.
While coming back to Spurs, Clarke will undergo rehab and he isn’t expected to play again in the current season.
Does Jack Clarke need another loan spell?
This news about the Englishman was relayed on Twitter by The Spurs Express. Many Tottenham fans made their views clear about Clarke’s situation.
What do Spurs fans make of Clarke’s situation?
“Sigh. This is sad news. Hopefully not true.“
“This kid is cursed.”
“Our players are jinxed even when they’re out on loan.”
Clarke joined Spurs in the summer of 2019 with the Lilywhites shelling out a fee of £9.9 million. The youngster was loaned out back to Leeds United for the first half of the 2019/20 season. On his return to Tottenham, he was loaned out again to Queens Park Rangers. The temporary stint at Stoke is his third consecutive loan spell (as per Transfermarkt).
At Stoke, the youngster has made 14 appearances while picking up a couple of assists for the side.
“This guy has the worst luck, hopefully he recovers in time for pre-season.”
“Please don’t be true.”
“Horrible break seemed like the loan was going very well.”
A lot of these Spurs fans are disappointed by this news update and they’re making their sadness clear about Clarke’s situation.
Clarke played just seven times for QPR last season, which suggests that he didn’t get a great deal of opportunity at Loftus Road. But he was playing more regularly at Stoke, which makes this injury an even bigger disappointment.
He has made only three first-team appearances for Spurs and to break into the side, he might need to prove his worth by playing and scoring elsewhere. This injury perhaps diminishes his chances of making a mark at Tottenham.
