Victor Wanyama apologises to Tottenham fans for leaving club
Former Tottenham Hotspur midfielder Victor Wanyama has apologised to the fans for leaving the club without winning any silverware (h/t MLSSoccer.com).
Wanyama had been at Tottenham since 2016, having arrived from Southampton. The Kenyan international forged a solid partnership alongside Mousa Dembele, becoming a key member of the team under Mauricio Pochettino.
However, the 28-year-old was ravaged by injuries over the past year or so. Having featured just three times in 2019/20, Wanyama left the club in March, signing for MLS outfit Montreal Impact.
The midfielder has now expressed his regret for having not won any trophy during his time at Tottenham. He has further apologised for how things ended at the club (h/t MLSSoccer.com).
“It’s sad. I felt sorry leaving like that, I’m sorry to the fans and myself after having a top team, performing at our best, but not winning anything. It’s just a shame. It’s painful to have left with nothing. We had an unbelievable team, but we didn’t win anything.”
Wanyama’s current team is managed by Arsenal legend Thierry Henry. Our former midfielder, though, said that he had not changed his allegiance just because he was playing under the Frenchman (h/t MLSSoccer.com).
“He’s an Arsenal legend and a very good manager, but we’ll never agree to anything regarding Spurs and Arsenal. I will always be Spurs through and through.”

In almost four years at our club, Wanyama managed to make 97 appearances. The 28-year-old scored seven goals and assisted one more during this time.
Injuries meant that he was far from his best towards the end of his spell at Tottenham, but Wanyama, when fit and firing, was a force in the middle of the park. Let’s hope things fare better for him in the MLS.
