The Tottenham Hotspur right-back didn’t manage a single touch in a 48-second long keepy-up session.
A training video on Twitter has some Tottenham Hotspur fans feeling sad.
In it, six Tottenham stars are seen enjoying a keepy-uppy session which lasts a full 48 seconds.
That being said, one Spurs player in the circle didn’t manage a single touch in the whole video – Kyle Walker-Peters.
Walker-Peters, an academy product with the Lilywhites, hasn’t made the bench for a Premier League game since August after a trying start to the new season.
Having sold Kieran Trippier this past summer, the 22-year-old right-back was expected to get a lot more game time but it hasn’t turned out like that.
And his exclusion from the keepy-up game seems to be symbolic of his entire season: involved, and yet not involved at the same time.
Here’s how Tottenham fans reacted to the footage on Twitter:

This makes me feel unreasonably sad considering he’s still basically doing a dream job.— Charlie B (@chazbobb) November 1, 2019
That’s brutal Tomorrow he should bring his own ball and tell them if they don’t pass to him they can’t play …That’s what I would do anyway ♂️— Schoolboy’s Own (@IanMorr82313534) November 1, 2019

Was that on purpose as a joke? If not then wtf lol— Pablo (@yngchipps) November 1, 2019
Tottenham go to Everton in a must-win Premier League game on Sunday and it’s unlikely that he’ll be involved it seems.
As a whole, Mauricio Pochettino’s side are enduring a very difficult season and the Argentine manager has to pick players that he knows he can rely on.
And sadly, it would appear as if he’s uncertain over Walker-Peters right now.
