A whole host of Tottenham Hotspur fans are furious on Twitter following the latest Giovani Lo Celso claim.
It’s been a turbulent campaign for Lo Celso thus far, having only started one game in the league, while he was also one of two Spurs player to be escorted off the pitch during Brazil’s match against Argentina due to a breach of protocol as he self-isolated in Croatia while keeping up his fitness.
Will Tottenham finish in the top six this season?
Following an initial loan spell with Spurs, the club splashed out £29 million to sign the midfielder permanently. Since he joined the club, Lo Celso has only registered seven goals and four assists. Now, a report from The Athletic has claimed that the midfielder is seen as ‘rude to non-football employees’, though his dry sense of humour is apparently popular with his teammates – which has angered a lot of Spurs fans.
A lot of Tottenham fans are annoyed on Twitter with this latest Lo Celso claim.
What have these Spurs fans had to say?
“Guy’s a freak. Get rid”
“The fans don’t appreciate his dry performances”
“Please leave @LoCelsoGiovani“
“Dude is absolutely useless in the squad but it’s okay bc he knows how to make fun”
“Well what a ridiculous story, I pay for a subscription to this nonsense as well.”
Lo Celso certainly has a battle on his hands for regular football at Spurs, considering Pierre-Emile Hojbjerg appears nailed-on to start whenever fit in the league judging by his starts both this and last season, as well as the emergence of Oliver Skipp, who has played 90 minutes in all of the club’s league games that he’s started this season, which will have done nothing to benefit the Argentine.
That leaves the likes of Lo Celso, Harry Winks and Tanguy Ndombele fighting for a spot in Nuno Espirito Santo’s midfield, and with the latter being the club’s most expensive signing and having netted against Wolves in the League Cup in midweek, it could be safe to assume that he could be the player highest up in the pecking order out of that trio.
