“Another player Levy failed to replace”: Tottenham fans praise former star who has not been replaced


Mousa Dembele is one of the finest central midfielders that Tottenham has had in recent seasons and the Belgian was a brilliant player for the club before leaving in January 2019.

He left just a few months before the club lost the Champions League final to Liverpool that year.

There is a feeling that they would probably have won the game if he had been in the team.

The Belgian made almost 200 league appearances for the club from 2012 to 2019 and has left a huge void in their midfield.

He was one reason Spurs were so good under Mauricio Pochettino and they have failed to replace him since he left the club.

They signed Tanguy Ndombele in the year he left, but inconsistency has plagued the Frenchman’s time at the club and he is struggling to play in this campaign.

The Lilywhites will face Rennes in their next competitive game in the European Conference League and they took to their account to post a goal from the last time they visited France.

Dembele scored it and it reminded some of their fans about what they are missing.
