After scaling through series of stages again this season, Tottenham Hotspur like every other club were given the opportunity to revise and recycle their UEFA Champions League squad and to declare publicly who is eligible to play in the upcoming matches against RB Leipzig and more going forward.
As cultural, there are two lists. List A comprises a maximum of 25 players, two of which must be goalkeepers, and of which eight are reserved for “locally-trained” players which are players who have been on the books at the club between age 15-21, or who were trained by another club in the same association(English Football Association) for three years within that same age range. List B, by contrast, contains players born after 1998 who have been at the club for at least two years.
There wasn’t that many too much differences from the first list submitted back in September but as expected, there are the obvious changes as Danny Rose and Christian Eriksen are both omitted due to their statuses as non members via their transfer moves.
Steven Bergwijn and Gedson Fernandes both are the fresh additions.
However, it’s bad news for defensive midfielder Victor Wanyama who was removed from the Champions League list deliberately by the gaffer.
Big Vic as he is called is omitted for an additional goalie Michel Vorm , which means that Spurs now have four keepers on their Champions League roster.
Meanwhile, Fans of Kenyan midfielder Victor Wanyama are not taking the recent snub of their idolize playmaker likely as many are already tipping Jose Mourinho for failure at Tottenham Hotspur.
Wanyama has been linked with a return back to the Scottish Premier League with the league champions Celtic in the midst of the rumour.
Wanyama has fallen out of recognition despite participating fully in Tottenham Hotspur’s UEFA Champions League run to the grande finale last season.
The 28-year-old has had a torrid time battling with various injuries firstly underMauricio Pochettino and now Jose Mourinho.
