The club may well be enjoying their most successful Premier League spell in history as well as looking forward to moving into a brand new multi-million-pound stadium, it doesn’t mean however that all is well at Tottenham Hotspurs, if these latest reports are to be believed.
Journalist Jack Pitt-Brook, a frequent writer for the Independent, seemingly has it on good authority that right-back Kyle Walker has fallen out with Argentinian boss Mauricio Pochettino, commenting that there is a ‘serious issue’ between the pair.
The flying full-back has enjoyed a fruitful season for the Lilywhites, form that has seen him linked with a big money Summer move to Manchester City. Recently, however, Walker has found himself on the Spurs bench, indeed the player did not get a starting berth for the glorious win over fierce rivals Arsenal this weekend, a decision that no doubt irked the defender given his close ties with the club having signed from Sheffield Wednesday over 10 years prior.
Indeed Pitt-Brook was so confident in his information, he predicted pre-match that Pochetino would plump for the talents of Kieran Trippier instead of Walker.
Serious issue between Pochettino and Walker now.

Whilst no further information has serviced regarding the pair’s potential falling out, Tottenham could be preparing for quite the pay-day for their star full-back. With Pep’s side circulating, a large fee would be required to tear Walker away from White-Hart Lane, given his high reputation as one of the division greatest in his position.
