Krzysztof Piatek rejected the chance to join Tottenham Hotspur this winter in favor of a move to Hertha Berlin, rumor has it his wife didn’t fancy London.

Tottenham Hotspur were in search of a striker this winter. It was believed their number one choice was then AC Milan striker Piatek.

The move never materialized and the Polish international move to Hertha Berlin.

There are suggestion that Spurs’ failure was down to the player’s wife Paulina Procyk not wanting to move to London. Rumor has it she said no as she preferred Berlin instead.

She has now taken to social media to clarify the accusations. She insists that all matters of a footballing nature are made by Krzysztof himself, and she is just there for support.

According to Talk Sport, she said:

“I don’t know where such information came from really, and how it got to the press.”

“Yes, my husband holds my opinion in high regard.”

“But I have never picked a club for him based on which city or climate I liked and I will never try to do so.”

“Any place in the world, that allows my husband to grow, be happy, and make his dreams come true, is perfect for me.”

“Decisions about new clubs to play in are made solely by Krzysztof along with his managers who care only about his growth and well-being.”

Whoever made the decision it appears to be working out well so far.
