Tottenham Hotspur fans slam Adams for questioning England’s Spurs contingent

Tottenham Hotspur have received plenty of plaudits over the last few years under the management of Mauricio Pochettino.

However, the North London outfit are yet to win silverware and have gone more than a decade without picking up a trophy.

Five of Spurs’ first-team players are part of England’s World Cup squad, with Harry Kane leading the way as captain in Russia.

Dele Alli, Eric Dier, Danny Rose and Kieran Trippier are also part of Gareth Southgate’s setup for the tournament, but Arsenal legend Tony Adams is concerned.

The former defender believes that Tottenham’s contingent do not have the mentality to succeed at the top level.

In recent seasons, the club have come close to challenging for the Premier League title, but have fallen short each time.

Some have suggested that the young squad do not possess the mental strength to get to the finish line, but Adams’s criticism is surprising given how crucial Kane has been to the qualifying campaign.

While speaking to The Sun, the retired centre-back said:

“I’m really worried about these Tottenham players; I don’t think they know how to win. They’re very good players but at certain points in seasons and tournaments, you have to step up – there’s a psyche players must have.”

Unsurprisingly, Tottenham fans were not best pleased with his remarks.
