The left back has finally opened up on the reason he left Tottenham last month during the transfer window.
“I do feel I wasn’t given as much of a chance as everybody else in the backline,”.
“I did want to play for him”.
“I knew after a month [of Mourinho joining] I was never going to play. It was difficult going out to train knowing I wasn’t going to play”.
“It’s not worked out, but full respect to him and what he’s doing at the club. He took over with the club 12 points adrift of Chelsea [now in fourth place] and now it’s four”.
“I have to be honest, I thought I would continue playing”.
