Spurs winger Andros Townsend issued his second apology in successive weeks after Tottenham’s dismal home defeat to West Ham on Sunday. The 22 year old was moved to say sorry following his dive in the 1-1 draw with Chelsea but chose this time to stand up and apologise to all fans for the weekend’s loss.
“Apologies to any fan that paid good money to watch that yesterday…… We will come back stronger for sure!,” Townsend said on his official Twitter feed.
Subsequently, the midfielder had admitted on the club’s official website the side just wasn’t good enough.
“We went into the game looking for the three points, we didn’t take our chances and we paid for it. That’s football,” he added.
“We’re not going to make excuses, we weren’t good enough on the day.
The player himself has kept his place in the side despite pressure from the club’s record signing Erik Lamela, although that may be more to do with the Argentine feeling his way into English football. Andros turned in a Man of the Match performance against Dinamo Tbilisi and has kept his Premiership starting place ever since but without providing a similar display in the league it may be time for Lamela to take over.
