Marcus Edwards in Germany

Spurs fans have been wondering and in some cases worrying why Marcus Edwards had not been included in the senior squad travelling to Hong Kong for a game. The answer may be that he is going to get more football in Germany.

There are rumblings of discontent over a contract, perhaps he thinks he should be moving ahead with his career faster than we do, it is a common problem with youngsters. He is talented, of that there is no doubt, but he is a long way from first team material yet.

At the moment he is easily pushed off the ball when we see him play against lower league sides, until his strength improves he will have to be patient.

The youngsters are travelling to Stemwede in Germany to take part in the 40th edition of the Under-19 Volksbank Cup.

We last took part in the tournament two years ago, losing out to Liverpool on penalties in the semi-finals. there are 10 teams taking part, split into two groups .

The Spurs youngsters been drawn against Red Bull Brazil ( Campinas, São Paulo, Brazil), FC Copenhagen (Denmark), Werder Bremen (Germany) and a Mühlenkreis Team (made up of a selection of local players from different clubs in regions around Stemwede) in the group stages.
