Tottenham Hostpur manager Mauricio Pochettino has taken a dig at Victor Wanyama over his dip in form.
Wanyama joined the north London outfit from Southampton in 2016 and arrived with much fanfare, but struggled after an excellent first season largely due to injuries.
Pochettino recently made clear his wish of selling the Kenyan international by January, 2020.
It is reported that Tottenham is in talks with Belgian side, Club Brugge, who have allegedly expressed interest in the out-of-favour defensive midfielder.
Spurs, UK media say, wants £11million (Ksh1.4 billion) from the sale of the football player.
Mauricio Pochettino says there is nothing personal on his planned sale of the 28-year-old.
“It's all about performance. Football is for today and tomorrow, not yesterday,” Pochettino said as quoted by The Mirror.
"You always need to show that you are there and deserve (to be there).
"In the case of Victor, he suffered an injury and another player stepped up and took his place. We are in a team, we are not a charity. Victor is a very important player and, for different circumstances, went backwards. That is the evolution of football and things like that happen naturally at all clubs,” said Pochettino.
