Tottenham Hotspur fans are seriously concerned about Marcus Edwards, after Mauricio Pochettino’s latest comments about the youngster.
Pochettino raved about Edwards publicly last term, but at his press conference he said he made a mistake comparing the forward with Lionel Messi.
Edwards simply hasn’t progressed at the rate Spurs were hoping, and is still some way away from the first-team.
Tottenham take on APOEL in the Champions League later this evening, and a number of youngsters are set to be given a chance in Pochettino’s side’s first team.
However, Edwards has been omitted from the squad, with Pochettino favouring other options.
And Tottenham fans are now extremely concerned that Edwards could be sold, unless he bucks his ideas up.

Edwards is gone in the summer— Alex Benson-Wilson (@alexbw11) December 5, 2017
Sounds like he’s going to waste that talent— . (@StylishRiot) December 5, 2017
Guys it's still a long bloody season. He's not gonna just put it on a plate for the kid.. he's pushing him to prove he's worth it.. It's the Bielsa way— Jason not Jason (@CheckedBoris) December 5, 2017
If you read the comments from Poch it sounds like an attitude/behaviour problem rather than ability. Hope we don't end up regretting it— Luke Rumble (@LukeRumble94) December 5, 2017
Might as well loan him out at this point, otherwise we may never seem him in the 1st team.— Stuart Peel (@JedLomax) December 5, 2017
He's lazy he thinks he's cracked. It major attitude change needed— Stuart batten (@stubatten) December 5, 2017
Kind of think it must be attitude issues of some kind as whenever I've seen him play in Uefa Youth League he's head and shoulders better than everyone else, he really needs the step up or at least a decent loan move in January otherwise he will stagnate.— The fan (@SimonBarnes20) December 6, 2017
Edwards has been given just one senior appearance for Tottenham to date, but he is still regarded as one of the most impressive youngsters in their team.
Edwards has caught the eye with his performances for the development squad, where he has netted seven goals in 14 appearances.
