The reason why Tottenham Hotspur in the English Premier League gave up accompanying Arnaut Danjuma has been revealed.
The Times’ Tom Alnut appeared on the Tottenham fan site ‘Tottenham Way’ podcast and revealed that Tottenham did not re-sign Danzuma, saying “there was a problem with his personality and his behavior in the locker room”.스포츠토토
“My impression of Dandjuma is that if he was really good, Tottenham would have signed him,” said Alnut. Personality, because there were a few question marks about personality in the locker room.”
Danjuma, from the Netherlands, went through Nijmegen, Club Bruges (Netherlands), and AFC Bournemouth (England) before joining Villarreal in the Spanish Primera Liga in the 2021-22 season. notified His acceleration and reckless breakthrough are his strengths, and he was evaluated as a versatile striker who can play as a central striker as well as on the flanks.
However, in his second season, he only scored 2 goals in 10 games, and his playing time decreased enough to start 6 games. Tottenham took advantage of the reduced position in the team and hired Danzuma on loan in the winter transfer market last January. It was a calculation to diversify the attack patterns focused on Richarlison, Dejan Kulusevski, Son Heung-min, and Harry Kane by recruiting Danjuma.
In addition, Tottenham included a full transfer option when signing Danzuma on loan from Villarreal. The transfer fee is said to be £27 million.
However, the results were different from expectations. He didn’t even get a chance to play. He scored only one goal in nine appearances in the Premier League. Among them, only 1 game was started, and the playing time was only 198 minutes.
The reason why Danjuma did not get playing time was identified as a tactical problem, but it was known that Alnut’s remarks showed problems in team chemistry.
Unfortunately, this is not the first time Danjuma’s team chemistry has been pointed out. Danzuma was linked to West Ham United in the Premier League due to his performance at Villarreal in the 2021-22 season, but it is known that then manager David Moyes gave up the recruitment due to problems with Danzuma’s personality and attitude.
Instead of giving up on renewing the contract with Danzuma, Tottenham fully recruited Dejan Kulusevski, who was on loan in the same position.
In addition, they are aiming to diversify their offensive positions under the coaching system of Ange Postecoglu. Relegated Leicester City midfielder James Maddison and winger Harvey Barnes are targets for signing.
