While his team mates have been vying to impress a new coach in pre season, Tottenham centre back Vlad Chiriches has been sitting out of the action but is his absence down to a recurrence of the back injury he picked up in the previous campaign or is the Romanian simply surplus to requirements at White Hart Lane?

As a left sided centre half, there isn’t quite so much competition for Chiriches’ place in the side but reports remain suggesting that the player is a target for Serie A side Roma. According to today’s Evening Standard, Franco Baldini’s former club are set to renew interest as prime target Mehdi Benatia seems set for a Chelsea switch.

It’s not necessarily a new link and without adequate cover on the left side, Spurs may be reluctant to sell but can you really see Vlad Chiriches playing much of a part in the 2014-15 Tottenham campaign?



  1. Sell and get the Argentina guy who looks better and seems to have a better training idea where it’s not in a bar rather than on the pitch .

  2. I think although it is harsh, he is one of trhe players departing in order for new signings to come in. Chirices money could help pave the way for Musacchio perhaps. Chadli money could help with Memphis Depay. Harry Kane could go the other way on loan to bring Bony. If there’s any hope then for Schneiderlain, surely at least one of Capoue,Sando or Bentaleb has to go out or on loan. There is hope but we need to move. So many areas that can be improved. We need to give ourselves a chance.

  3. I thought he had a good debut season and while I don’t doubt that he is genuinely injured, it does seem like he’s not in the plans.

    There are other players I would move on before him though, we need to get rid of Chadli and Paulinho ASAP. Neither of them have any guts and will never be top PL players. Just thinking about how Paulinho cost more than Modric makes me cringe.

  4. I can… I thought in spells he looked fantastic last season. After a year of settling in and reducing the risk taking I think we’d have a great defender on our hands.

  5. What nonsense, we are looking to strengthen the defence in its weak areas, Chiriches is the best equipped to cover for Vertonghen, our problem is being light on with quality in the more attacking centre back; Kaboul having been injury prone and Dawson slowing down and having some limitations in the footballing department. Buying a quality centre back who can defend on the front foot, in the air and can play a bit too is a must. Mussachio gives us two quality CBs with Kaboul and Chiriches for cover. Dawson should be the one to give way.

  6. Daws and Kaboul have refused transfers so we are being forced to lose the one with the best long term potential .. Daws should never be a captain again.

    • I get more excited watching you cunts fail every year in the champions league cliff richard just bee pulled in how long b4 the pedo is called in mertscielny what sort of name is that shit face sad little no friends cunt
