With the earlier claims of ‘unprofessionalism’ concerning Tottenham Hotspur midfielder Victor Wanyama from his Kenya international coach, some Spurs fans have moved on quickly from his mad wibbling and focused on what a boost it will be to have the 27-year-old back and fit and firing for us once again.
Victor Wanyama is spending the International break in full training for Spurs as he builds up his fitness ahead of the club’s upcoming match versus Liverpool.

He certainly hasn’t had the game time he would’ve liked since his reported £11million move from Southampton back in the 2016 summer transfer window, but with his injury behind him there is a chance he could make a first appearance of 2018/19 when the September international break comes to an end – following his appearance on the substitutes bench against Watford.
Having informed his country through the proper channels as far as Spurs were concerned, that he wasn’t fit enough to turn out for them at this time of asking – he’s yet to play this season so anyone with an IQ could’ve worked that out – the player has confirmed his focus over the break is to get him as close to tip-top fitness as possible so he can hit the ground running and that’s come as music to the ears of fans.
Loading his rocket launcher against Liverpool. Repeat that BigVic!

Too bloody right! Clubs should always have the final say with injured players

Exactly what we needed against Watford

Can't wait to have him back in the side. Absolute rock when fit.

Easily one of the best Tottenham players 16/17 imo

Blighted by injuries last season, it is easy to forget just how important a fit Victor Wanyama can be to our squad for this campaign.

Victor the destroyer. We need our tank back and firing.

Starter when fit for me, along with fully fit winks

We need some muscle in midfield. Would have put himself about v Watford.

Was my player of the season two seasons ago when we went unbeaten at home. Has worrying injury problems though. Would dearly love to see him bck playing regularly

He’s undoubtedly a massive player for us when on form and despite the Watford hiccup, it’s been a decent start to the year and he certainly has his part to play as we look to push on further this season. Kenya will be disappointed, but ultimately Spurs nor the player can actually refuse – the country need to accept and given they didn’t insist he turn up for a medical assessment, they accepted and their head coach should know the rules instead of looking for early excuses.
The alternative is Wanyama has told them he’s retired and I very much doubt that’s the case.
