Victor Wanyama slams ‘sad’ treatment from Tottenham Hotspur prior to exit

Tottenham Hotspur eventually allowed the Kenyan to join Montreal Impact.

Victor Wanyama has again spoken out about his treatment at Tottenham Hotspur prior to his exit from the club. 

The Kenyan international joined Montreal Impact of Major League Soccer in March after three-and-a-half seasons in North London. 

It came amid a recent period of niggling injury problems for the player who had not played a competitive game for Tottenham since a late substitute appearance against Bayern Munich in the Champions League back in December.

He later explained to the CBC in Canada that he felt his inactivity was not down to the coaching choices at Spurs but the hierarchy. 

Now he has discussed his exit from Tottenham even more candidly with Madgoat TV and it is clear the midfielder, who cost a reported (The Guardian) £11 million when joining Spurs from Southampton in 2016, was not pleased with how things were handled.


“It was sad the way they were treating me. I had given my all to the club. I loved the club and had a good relationship with the fans and the players so I wanted to leave the club to at least enjoy football again.

“At some point I was losing the passion for the game, because one could train hard and expect to be part of the match day squad only to not appear on the team sheet.  At that point I said no.” 

Tottenham fans were not surprised when Wanyama left the club and given his more recent outings for the team and recent injury record were unlikely to be too disappointed.

But it was disheartening to see the midfield dynamo cast aside at Spurs despite his previous good service to the club. Hopefully, he can get his career back on track in Quebec.
