Winks has only featured for one minute in the Premier League thus far in the league, however, Nuno Espirito Santo may turn to the midfielder, who was linked with a move away over the summer with Oliver Skipp a doubt having picked up an injury while on international duty.
Will Tottenham Hotspur make top four this season?
Spurs released a training video of Winks on Thursday evening which showed the midfielder controlling a ball that was fizzed in at him from a machine to test his touch in a small area, but it certainly didn’t go down well with a lot of Spurs fans.
What have these Tottenham fans been saying?
“Shame he makes the actual game look so difficult”
“I despise this guy”
“Harry Winks should never EVER be in the same sentence as ‘making it look easy”
“No way! Never let him play another game for this football club again”
“Cones don’t tackle back, he actually looks afraid of the ball in a couple of the exercises”
Winks has been with Spurs his whole career and has played in both a Champions League and Carabao Cup final, but appears to have his nose pushed out of the squad by Skipp, who has very little top-flight experience.
News that Winks may not have been thrilled to find out was that Tanguy Ndombele is now willing to work harder and fight for a spot in the team despite claiming he wanted to leave in the summer, so Winks may fall down the pecking order even further.
It is clear that these fans aren’t too impressed by Winks, despite him demonstrating his skills on the ball. It would appear that the midfielder has bridges to build with sections of the supporters, regardless of whether he can get into Espirito Santo’s team.
