Tottenham Hotspur midfielder Victor Wanyama is ready to fight back for a chance in the first squad after many problems and a very chaotic transfer window.

During the summer transfer window midfielder, Victor Wanyama was ready to leave Tottenham Hotspur and join a new team.

But the deal fell through and he’s ready now to fight back for a position in the starting eleven.

“For me, I am a professional player and sometimes you have to wait until everything is done. Things were good but unfortunately, the transfer didn’t happen,” Wanyama was quoted by Goal.

“But I have to put my head down and work hard in training to be back on top form. I will keep working and wait for my chance in the team.”

He also spoke about his national team playing this week: “I was pleased with their performance against Uganda especially in the second half and hopefully, we can continue working as a team, stay focused and look at the positives.”

“I think it’s just a matter of self-belief, we have been there [at Afcon) and we know what it takes to be there and if we continue working together and believing in ourselves, we will be ready to qualify again.”

“It feels very good to be back because this is a new group and I am enjoying the challenge. These friendly matches will help us settle down and gel as a team,” Wanyama concluded.
