“He wants to prove that Tottenham made a mistake”- Serie A club honcho Marco Lanna makes claim about Spurs loanee

Sampdoria president claims Harry Winks wants to prove Spurs ‘made a mistake’ in letting him go

Harry Winks was one of the three first-team Tottenham Hotspur midfielders that were allowed to leave on loan this summer, as he joined Sampdoria in Serie A.

Giovani Lo Celso joined Villarreal and Tanguy Ndombele made the switch to Napoli – both in temporary deals. While the Argentine and the Frenchman have featured for their new teams this season, Winks hasn’t.

This is due to the English midfielder returning to match fitness after a recent injury. He was present in the stands in Sampdoria’s 1-1 draw against Lazio on August 31, just one day after his move was announced by Spurs.

Winks expectedly missed the game against AC Milan due to fitness issues as well. Speaking at a charity event as reported by Club Doria 46 via Sport Witness (h/t Football.London), Sampdoria president Marco Lanna gave an update on the player’s injury.

“Winks resumes training this week and re-joins the group next week, so I’m told. For us, he can be very important. He’s a player who wants to play.”

“He’s not afraid of pain. I’m confident that he will take the field as soon as he can. He wants to prove that Tottenham made a mistake. You will see it when he’s on the pitch.”

If Winks does desire to prove a point to Spurs, then it should be taken in a positive light. Players, when loaned out, naturally want to prove a point to their parent clubs.

Winks also made the switch at the correct time and it cannot be held against him. The 26-year-old may not be a shoo-in to be selected for England’s squad at the FIFA World Cup in November but regular playing time could have helped his cause.

More Tottenham News:

He may be out of action now and from Lanna’s comments, one can predict that Winks could miss Sampdoria’s trip to face Spezia on Saturday, September 17. We could, hence, expect to see the Spurs loanee make his debut for the Italian club on October 2, when they take on Monza in the league after the international break.
