Recently we have mentioned players who we’d like to see back at the club and Dimitar Berbatov, Paul Robinson and Michael Carrick have all been considered. One player however who is unlikely to get a mention is Mounir El Hamdaoui.
El Hamdaoui was born in Holland and began his professional career with Excelsior as a teenager. After a good goalsocring record he came to Spurs in 2005 but despite featuring in pre-season, he didn’t make a Premiership start. After a loan spell at Derby he eventually slipped quietly back into Dutch football.
Six years on and the player is making a name for himself at Ajax after a successful spell with AZ. During his time with these clubs he has averaged well over a goal a game and has scored twice in five matches for the Moroccan national side.
Coming back to Spurs seems unlikely and there’s certainly been no mention of it in the press, but you can bet that Tottenham will be linked with worse third or fourth choice strikers than Mounir El Hamdaoui.
