Tottenham Hotspur teenager Dennis Cirkin has suffered an injury which has left him wearing a protective boot, confirming as much on his Snapchat account – and many Tottenham fans have reacted on Twitter.
Cirkin, 17, has been in stunning form for the club’s Under-18 and Under-23 sides this season and has already caught the eye of Jose Mourinho. Indeed, the Spurs manager has even named in his 18-man senior squad this season.
The Irish-born England Under-17 international was part of the 18-man squad that initially drew with Championship side Middlesbrough in the FA Cup, though he remained an unused subsitute. It was the same story in the replay.
Posting on Snapchat, teenager Cirkin confirmed that he had suffered an injury and was wearing a protective boot on his left foot. He captioned the post with a message that highlights how frustrated Cirkin is, saying: “Back to square one again.”
Highly rated academy prospect, Dennis Cirkin seems to have sustained a serious injury.

Cirkin would have certainly been confident that he was nearing a breakthrough into the Tottenham senior side, especially with Danny Rose having joined Newcastle on loan until the end of the season. It remains to be seen when he will return.
Tottenham fans have reacted to the news that Cirkin has suffered an injury, with many frustrated for the youngster. He joins a lengthy injury list including Son Heung-min, Harry Kane and Moussa Sissoko – and Spurs supporters cannot believe their luck.
Oh my god we’re the most unluckiest club

Minutes after Spurs announce Kane has commenced on field rehabilitation Dennis Cirkin has to go and potentially break his leg. We really can’t have anything good at Spurs
