Tottenham Hotspur winger Georges-Kevin N'Koudou suffered a further humiliation last night as he failed to even make their Carabao Cup squad.

N'Koudou has failed to win over manager Mauricio Pochettino in his two years since joining Tottenham.

The Carabao Cup game with Watford was a chance for Spurs to rotate the team, and give minutes to players who have not been involved yet this season.

 

Fernando Llorente for instance was selected. Only on the bench, but enough to give him hope, and make him feel included.

Georges-Kevin N'Koudou appears to be a lost cause as far as the Tottenham boss is concerned.

The former Marseille winger actually impressed in pre-season and scored a winner in a friendly against AC Milan.

This was not enough to change the course of his Tottenham career.

It became clear over the past month that N'Koudou had very little prospect of first team football this season.

The one hope on the horizon was rotation and a cup appearance, in which he could get a small window of opportunity to show what he is capable of.

Last night he wasn't even given that.
