Pienaar’s unhappy stay comes to an end

When Steven Pienaar joined Spurs in January 2011, many Spurs fans were scratching their heads as to why the player had been brought in. At £3m and with a good reputation, it seemed like a reasonable price but with Gareth Bale dominating the left side of midfield, the player’s chances were always going to be limited.

It didn’t help that Spurs fans were waiting for the big signing of that particular window. Instead, all we got was Harry telling reporters that nothing was happening before an attempt to sign Charlie Adam was lucky enough to miss the deadline.

18 months on and Steven is back where he is happiest. In 18 games and one goal, we never saw the best of him and with respect to the player, this was one of the club’s more pointless signings in recent years.

    please mrLevy and mr.AVB sign a top-class forward, a goalkeeper(Cesar or Lloris) and line-up a replacement for Modric, and give Gio Dos Santos a decent oppurtunity

    In January he went back on loan to Everton where I think he played wide right, he played like the best player in the EPL while Lennon struggled with injury & Spurs struggled to cover (rather Spurs struggled everywhere), I guess HR knew best.

    He wasn’t the player that ‘would improve the team’ as ‘Arry put it, in my opinion.
