‘The World Cup is coming’ – Tottenham Hotspur player admits leaving ‘could be an option’

Steven Bergwijn has admitted that leaving Tottenham Hotspur “could be an option” for him this summer as he eyes a spot in the Netherlands squad for the World Cup.

The 24-year-old signed for Spurs from PSV at the start of 2020. They paid around £26m to bring him in.

Bergwijn has been a bit-part player for Tottenham over the past few seasons. He has only started four games in the Premier League so far this term.

The attacker was linked with a move back to the Netherlands in January as Ajax were plotting a move for him.

Back in March, the player hinted that he would be open to leaving Tottenham this summer. 

Bergwijn has played 18 times for the Netherlands, who have qualified for this year’s World Cup. He has admitted that “Ajax could be an option” for him:

“A starting spot here? I don’t think so to be honest. It’s a complicated story for me,” Bergwijn acknowledged (quotes via HITC).

“I don’t play much. Ajax could be an option for me, and a return to The Netherlands could be an option for me. The World Cup is coming.”

Speaking on Tottenham’s win over Leicester, Antonio Conte stated that they “have to be satisfied” with their position in the Premier League:

“It was a good performance against a really good team. The game wasn’t easy and we knew very well that despite them making eight changes from the last game against Roma you can see the quality, you can see the squad that Leicester has.

“I think then we deserved to win the game.

“For sure we got three points in an important moment of the season, especially because in the next games we are going to face first Liverpool and then Arsenal.

“Today it was vital to get three points. There is only one result and a lot of pressure, but I said to my players to live this moment, to enjoy this moment because we deserved it after really great work that we did in these six months.

“I think no one at the start of the season could imagine Tottenham challenging for a place in the Champions League, especially in November when there was a change, and for this reason, we have to be satisfied that we stay in this position to fight for a big achievement.”
