‘He deserves better’ – Tottenham fans ‘feel sorry’ for Harry Winks as he gives update on club situation
TOTTENHAM supporters are full of sympathy for Harry Winks after he revealed that no-one, including Antonio Conte, has contacted him from the club during his time at Sampdoria.
The 27-year-old England international fell out of favour at his boyhood side under the Italian.

That led to a season-long loan switch to Serie A side Sampdoria in August – but it soon turned into a nightmare.
Midfielder Winks suffered an ankle injury that prevented him from making his debut for the Italians until January.
Now he is back and looking to help fire Sampdoria from the foot of the table to top-flight safety.
And he admitted that he feels “indebted” to them for their support through his rehab as he revealed that he had not heard a single thing from his parent club.
Winks told La Gazzetta dello Sport: “I feel indebted to Sampdoria, if I had been available from the start I would have given my all.
“The club has always supported me, it was important for my ankle to fully heal.
“No one from Spurs has contacted me, not even the coach.”
And that has left supporters raging.

One tweeted: “Feel sorry for him yes not been great the last few season but probably another player getting mistreated by the club which a sad as Winks has passion for us.”
Another wrote: “I’ve always thought Harry Winks seemed like a top bloke and he’s definitely Spurs through and through. To see that he’s been treated like this by the club is disheartening.”
While another added: “He deserves better.”
Winks, who is under contract at Spurs until 2024, has been with the North London club since he was five-years-old.
Sampdoria are believed to have an option to buy him permanently, but when quizzed on his future, the ten-capped Three Lions ace said: “I have a loan contract until June, I’m satisfied with this experience.
“I don’t know what my future will be after June and I don’t even think about it now.”
