Victor Wanyama Reveals Reasons Why He Quit Tottenham Hotspur Ksh436 million Salary

Victor Wanyama, a former midfielder for Tottenham Hotspur, recently gave an interview discussing his departure from the club. Speaking on Madgoat TV from Canada, where he currently resides after joining Thierry Henry’s Montreal Impact side, Wanyama expressed his frustration with the management team at Tottenham Hotspur.

He stated that despite his efforts to work his way back into the team after sustaining serious knee injuries in 2017 and 2018, he was stonewalled and unable to get the playing time he craved. Although he was hopeful when Jose Mourinho was appointed as head coach, the frustration continued, and he was eventually told that the club was looking to sell him. This information came from third parties, which Wanyama found particularly irksome, and he decided to demand that the club let him leave.

Despite Tottenham Hotspur’s stonewalling tactics, Wanyama was eventually signed by Montreal Impact on March 3, 2020, after being approached by Thierry Henry. Wanyama expressed his admiration for Henry and stated that he was thrilled to have the opportunity to work with him.

During his time at Tottenham Hotspur, Wanyama earned Ksh436 million annually, according to Spotrac data. He made 97 appearances for the club, scoring seven times, and was part of the squad that reached the UEFA Champions League final. Prior to joining Tottenham Hotspur, he won a pair of Scottish Premier League titles with Celtic FC.

Wanyama’s competitive debut for Montreal was on March 11, 2020, in the first leg quarterfinal of the CONCACAF Champions League at Stade Olympique. Although the Covid-19 pandemic led to the suspension of the Major League Soccer (MLS) on March 12, Wanyama’s debut showed that he is still in his prime.
