Spurs is one of the most followed club in UK. Many great legends have played for the club in the past. However, the club has also made quite a few horror signings. These signings were not only bad for the club but also for the players. Let us have a look at some of the worst ever Tottenham Hotspur signings.
Here are the top 10 worst ever Tottenham Hotspur Signings –
10. Vincent Janssen
When Spurs signed Vincent Janssen for 17million from AZ Alkmaar, the Dutchman brought with him a reputation for scoring goals. However, he did little to nothing to prove himself worthy of being competition to Harry Kane up top.
Janssen did little to endear himself to the Spurs faithful, as he scored just six goals, justifying none of the club’s £17m investment. Currently on loan at Fenerbahce , his loan deal could be extended.
9. Clinton N’jie
Mauricio Pochettino and Daniel Levy got this one wrong; Clinton N’jie was signed from Lyon back in 2015 for a cool £12million. Pochettino couldn’t find a way of making N’jie fit into the Spurs set up. He made just 14 appearances, though, and was shipped out on loan to Marseille, with the manager unable to tame his wild first-touch and raw pace. His loan move was made permanent in 2017.
8. Sergei Rebrov
He expected to be an equivalent to Shevchenko when he arrived at Spurs from Dinamo Kiev, but turned out to be more of a Voronin. He started with a struggling nine goals in 29 games, where he looked off the pace, and then scored one goal in thirty games the following season. Loan spells followed, and then a one-year-deal with West Ham after Spurs let his contract expire.
7. Grzegorz Rasiak
Grzegorz Rasiak is the definition of a panic buy; brought in by then Spurs boss Martin Jol to score a heap load of goals, Rasiak did the complete opposite.
Lured from Derby County on transfer deadline day in 2005 with the club in desperate need of attacking reinforcements, Rasiak failed to score in nine appearances for the club and was shipped out on loan to Southampton just a year later, before eventually completing a permanent move.
