Tottenham supporters are furious with Victor Wanyama despite win over Newcastle

Tottenham fans are losing patience with current midfielder Victor Wanyamer after his poor individual performance against Newcastle United.

Mauricio Pochettino’s side confirmed a top-four finish when they beat Rafael Benitez’ Magpies on Wednesday night, 1-0, while Chelsea dropped points to Huddersfield to verify Spurs’ European status.

However, Tottenham struggled to break down a stubborn Newcastle side, and many fans directed their anger and frustration towards Kenyan international Victor Wanyama.

The former Southampton player had been a revelation in his first season. However, this campaign has been a nothing short of a disaster for him as he appears to have fallen out of favour with former Saints boss Pochettino.

With earlier reports from the Daily Mail linking the Kenyan with a move away from north-London, this was not a performance to justify why Spurs fans have been crying out for him to stay.

In fact, Wednesday night reached a breaking point for some supporters, who now believe they should cash in on the midfielder.

According to the Daily Star, Wanyama is one of Spurs top-earners and with only 23 appearances this season, compared to the 47 the previous campaign, he is no longer earning his keep.

With Wanyama falling down the pecking order in Pochettino’s side, a move may be the sensible option for the former Celtic midfielder, who is too good to be wasting the best years of his career sat on the bench.

If Levy were to make him available, there would be a long queue of buyers ready for the Kenyan’s services.
