Despite having quite a small squad available to him at Tottenham, Mauricio Pochettino has taken a principled stance on the futures of Toby Alderweireld and Danny Rose.
Both players look set to leave the North London club in the summer and could both stay in the Premier League, strengthening a title rival next time around.
Rose is closer to the first-team picture but Belgian international Alderweireld has been frozen out by Pochettino since his return from injury and that looks set to continue this weekend as Spurs look to inflict a fourth straight defeat on Pep Guardiola’s Manchester City and keep pace with Manchester United in the race for second.
We asked Tottenham fans, ahead of that crunch clash with City, whether they think it is the right call.
While the majority of Spurs fans – 61 per cent – think it is the right call, there is still a significant chunk of the fanbase that want Alderweireld to be reintegrated into the fold.
