Sky pundit says player Spurs sold this summer for £10m ‘wasn’t given a fair crack’ at spurs; now doing ‘incredible’

Harry Winks was sold by Tottenham Hotspur to Leicester City this summer for an estimated £10 million.

However, even with Spurs dominating the Premier League, the 27-year-old hasn’t turned around since relocating to the Midlands.

The former star of Tottenham’s youth is now essential to the Foxes, who lead the Championship by five points at the moment.

For his new team, Winks has made 16 appearances, 14 of which have been in the league. Additionally, he has a goal in the second division.

Conor Coady, his new colleague, called Winks “an incredible footballer” in a recent interview with The Telegraph.

The England international opened the game for Leicester on Friday against Leeds United, who were also in the Premier League the previous season, starting in the middle of midfield.

Speaking before the game, Elland Road cult icon and Sky Sports pundit Jermaine Beckford expressed his satisfaction that Winks left Tottenham in the summer.

He said on Sky Sports, “I’m just glad he’s here because he had a bit of a rough time at Tottenham.” “I think he wasn’t given a fair chance to succeed.”

Although Winks’ success at Leicester is encouraging, it’s not like he was denied opportunities at Tottenham.

While with Spurs, he made more over 200 senior competitive appearances. That hardly seems like evidence that a player isn’t getting a fair shot.

Besides, Winks made the decision. He claimed, according to The Sun, that he didn’t even wait for Ange Postecoglou to arrive. By then, the relocation had been completed.

In this instance, everyone comes out ahead. Winks is thriving at Leicester, who are also vying for promotion, and his departure means James Maddison isn’t missed.

The departure of Winks hasn’t hurt Tottenham, either, as they lead their division.
