“Difficult at the moment”: Tottenham star admits concerns over lack of game time ahead of Euros



Harry Winks concerned over lack of game time at Tottenham as Euros near

As reported by the Daily Mail, Tottenham Hotspur midfielder Harry Winks has admitted that he finds himself in a difficult situation currently as the lack of game time means his place in the England national team is always under a threat.

Winks, a product of the Tottenham youth academy, has struggled for game time in the ongoing season.

Jose Mourinho has generally preferred to use new signing Pierre-Emile Hojbjerg in the middle of the park alongside the likes of Moussa Sissoko, Tanguy Ndombele and Giovani Lo Celso, meaning the Englishman has found opportunities hard to come by.

Winks has played nine times for Tottenham this season in all competitions. While he has started all three of our Europa League group games, the 24-year-old has featured just once in Spurs’ four Premier League matches since October, that too coming on as a substitute against West Ham United.

And while he was given an opportunity by England manager Gareth Southgate for the November’s set of international fixtures, Winks has admitted that the lack of playing time might affect his chances to make the squad for the Euros next year. (h/t Daily Mail)

“Definitely, my situation at Tottenham is difficult at the moment. I want to be a part of that in the Euros and I want to be in the starting XI in the Euros as well. But, yes, it’s important that back at Tottenham I get the opportunities there and I stay in the team there as well.”

Winks’ game-time, or lack thereof, is understandable considering how the rest of the players in the midfield department are performing. And at the same time, with games in Europe coming thick and fast, he has not entirely been deprived of regular action.

With the 24-year-old doing rather well in the last two games for England, he just needs to put his head down and keep working and good things will follow.
