Twitter reacts as Saido Berhino opens up on failed Tottenham Hotspur move
It may seem like a cruel joke today, but Saido Berahino was once one of English football’s best young talents.
Having impressed for West Bromwich Albion, he was linked with a move away to Tottenham Hotspur. However, the Baggies rejected all approaches fro White Hart Lane. This led to the player going on strike and lashing out at West Brom chairman Jeremy Pearce. An ill-advised decision he drew a lot of flak for.
Speaking to BBC, he revealed that he never got over the failed transfer to the Lane. Signing the then 21-year-old would have capped off a sensational window for Spurs having already signed Toby Alderweireld and Son Heung-min.
A difficult season at the Hawthorns ensued before he moved to Stoke City. he never hit the same heights again and today plays for Belgian side Zulte Waregem.
A number of Spurs fans took to Twitter to respond to the player’s revelations. We take a look at a few of them below.

Mascherano, Tevez and Modric. I blame those guys. Footballers are gullible and impressionable.
The players above threw tantrums forcing moves away from their clubs.
Here comes an over rated Englishman thinking he can do the same. We all know what happened to his form
