Juan Foyth outlined his plans at Tottenham Hotspur ‘s side to compete for a place next season, despite being tied to a move away from the club.
The defender failed to breakthrough in north London, having joined Tottenham back in 2017 before making his debut the following year.
The 22-year-old has only made seven appearances in all competitions this season, with just three of them coming after Jose Mourinho was appointed manager.
When the Premier League resumed in June, a knee injury ruled Foyth out of Spurs’ run-in, but he was able to go back to the bench for the penultimate game against Leicester City in the season!
He was left of the squad for the final fixture at Crystal Palace on Sunday, however, and speculation was rife about his future at the club.
The defender was linked to a move away from Tottenham Hotspur Stadium this summer, with many clubs reportedly interested in signing for the young Argentinean.
Foyth has made it clear, though, that he wants to fight at Mourinho’s side for his place next season.
Speaking to Libero, an Argentine sports show, Foyth said: “If I have a chance to compete for a spot, I want to stay at Spurs. Mourinho’s very tight with the players. Though I haven’t played a lot, I think he is a great coach and guy. He wants to win at all conceivable costs.”
