Tottenham have struggled to find capable backups for Harry Kane since the Englishman’s emergence on the scene and the story of Fernando Llorente is just the latest example.
The 24-cap Spanish international has enjoyed an impressive career and had something of a mini-revivial under the dimmer lights of the Liberty Stadium but there was little to suggest that he was the man to deputise for Kane.
Despite that, Mauricio Pochettino splashed out for the Spaniard on deadline day in the summer, snatching him from under the noses of Chelsea.
Kane will always be top dog at Spurs for as long as he’s there, so finding someone to play second fiddle but also perform when called upon is a tough ask for Pochettino.
We’ve taken a closer look at the passionate responses to the prospect that the Spaniard may well leave North London after just one season under Pochettino’s watch…
Bye bye bright eyes, it just didn't work out 😞

Agreed. Was doomed to fail, as we never play to his strengths.
