Kyle Walker-Peters has joined the Tottenham Hotspur stars to wish Mauricio Pochettino well, despite being consistently overlooked this term.

Pochettino left Tottenham on Tuesday, and the news of his departure came as a shock to many.

 

There have been some suggestions in the Daily Mail that Pochettino’s relationship with some of Tottenham’s players became strained towards the end of his time at the club.

However, Walker-Peters only had positive words for Pochettino, despite his lack of game time this term.

Spurs have struggled badly to find a right-back this season, but Pochettino always seemed to have a reluctance to use Walker-Peters.

Even though the youngster did start the campaign as Spurs’s first choice in the position he was unable to hold down his spot in the starting line-up, and has not been in a match day squad in the Premier League since August.

Pochettino had plenty of chances to use Walker-Peters across a number of seasons, but it was rare that the youngster was given a chance.

Even so, Walker-Peters joined a number of his Tottenham teammates in wishing Pochettino well on social media.

Paulo Gazzaniga also came out on Twitter and wrote a message to the Argentine boss who brought him to Hotspur Way.

Gazzaniga looks set to start in Jose Mourinho’s first game in charge of Tottenham at the weekend, but whether he will turn to Walker-Peters remains to be seen.
