Report: Tottenham's Andros Townsend given stern ultimatum by Pochettino, return date stated

Andros Townsend

Andros Townsend has reportedly been told that he has one more chance at Tottenham.

According to The Sun, Tottenham winger Andros Townsend has been handed one final chance to impress at Tottenham, having been involved in a row with fitness coach Nathan Gardiner.

Townsend, 24, has become something of an outcast at White Hart Lane under Pochettino, having played just 64 minutes of Premier League football this season.

With aspirations of playing for England at next summer's European Championships in France, Townsend is understandably frustrated by his lack of playing time - and matters came to a head on Monday night.

After Tottenham's 3-1 win over Aston Villa - a game which Townsend was an unused substitute for - the wide man was seen in a heated argument with fitness coach Nathan Gardiner.

Townsend was subsequently left out of Thursday's Europa League clash against Anderlecht, whilst he will also be banished from the squad for today's huge North London derby against Arsenal.

Now, The Sun report that Pochettino has held crunch talks with Townsend about his behaviour, telling the winger that he has one last chance to prove his worth at White Hart Lane or he risks leaving the club.

It's also stated that Pochettino is prepared to let Townsend back in to the squad for the game against West Ham United on November 22nd, giving the winger time over the international to prove that he deserves a regular place in the Tottenham team.
