Tottenham Hotspur fans have urged young talent Marcus Edwards to turn his career around following a loan spell in the Netherlands with Excelsior.
The attacking midfielder was allowed to move to Holland in August of 2018 and he went on to make 25 appearances in the Eredivisie, scoring two goals and laying on a total of four assists. Excelsior were ultimately relegated.
Edwards has long been hailed as a star of the future and made his debut for Spurs in 2016, playing 15 minutes in a 5-0 EFL Cup win over Gillingham.
He is set to return to the club this summer after enjoying his season in the Netherlands and it remains to be seen if he will be given the chance to play his way into Mauricio Pochettino’s first-team.
His contract expires at the end of next season and there have previously been doubts about his attitude; a loan spell with Norwich City in the 2017-18 season was cut short due to “personal reasons”.
Pochettino, though, has previously compared Edwards with Barcelona great Lionel Messi and fans are hopeful that he could finally deliver on his potential next term.

You have so much talent Marcus, take a leaf out of the Harry Kane book; who was out on loan to many clubs to learn his craft, and through hard work and dedication, He has become world class. Poch has seen your qualities, but it is nothing without your application and hard work.
