Tottenham Hotspur fans have been left baffled by Kyle Walker-Peters’ comments about Mauricio Pochettino on Southampton’s official website.
Walker-Peters was loaned out by Tottenham in January, with Jose Mourinho keen to enable the youngster to get first-team football at Southampton.
However, Walker-Peters feels that things could have turned out differently for him at Tottenham if Mauricio Pochettino had stayed.
“I think had he stayed, I’d still be at Tottenham, I think that he showed his faith in me,” Walker-Peters said.
“Mourinho comes in and I get to play one game, but I didn't really get an opportunity like I thought I would originally.”
Tottenham fans cannot understand Walker-Peters’s comments though, as they felt Pochettino actually showed a lack of faith in him.
The England youth international was hardly a first-team regular when Pochettino was in charge.
And Spurs fans have been left shocked by the right-back’s latest words.
Is he mad? Under Poch he played like 2 games last season and got MotM in both and we never saw the lad again. Nothin nothing nothing then BARCELONA, mistake, then bench again— ap (@otheranthony) March 25, 2020
He got 9 starts in 3 seasons with Poch, has he actually lost his mind?— glebosik_memosik (@GlebosikMemosik) March 25, 2020
The summary of this interview: "Im being sold in the summer, but it's Mourinho's fault" Guys deluded.— James Oakman (@JamesOakman) March 25, 2020

Walker-Peters has made just 24 senior appearances for Tottenham, despite being around their first-team squad for three seasons now.
At Southampton the energetic right-back had made one start, before the Premier League season was suspended.
