No apologies for relentlessly playing what has clearly become a stuck record. Marcus Edwards is another time-waster.
The Norwich City gaffer has taken to social media to provide an update on the Tottenham Hotspur Academy ace.
The word ‘improving’ was certainly used, but there is suck a thing as damning with faint praise.
After 5 (five) seasons at Spurs the now 19 year old has gone the way of every other Spurs prospect that nobody at the club knew quite what to do with. He was loaned out in the vague hope that another side might provide the much overdue catalyst to unlock the boy’s potential.
As we know, Edwards ‘claim to fame’ was a 15 minute cameo against
Liverpool Gillingham in the League cup during the 2016/17 season. Since then his biggest achievement has been a discussion thread on Spurs Community spanning in excess of 100 pages.
Pochettino said “Sometimes I wonder whether it was wise to liken him to Messi,” the coach said in Brave New World, a book written by journalist Guillem Balague. “He’s only 17. At that age, Messi was making his debut for a Barcelona side featuring Ronaldinho.”
Two years on and the lad can’t get buy a single minute of game-time with Championship side Norwich.
Thank goodness Levy hasn’t made any stupid claims about our youth players being worth between £20million and £40million…
