Victor Wanyama feels he deserved to win a trophy in England before he ended his stay to sign for Montreal Impact.
The 28-year-old Kenyan captain left Tottenham in March to complete a move to the United States, to play Major League Soccer (MLS).
In total, Wanyama enjoyed a seven-year stint in the Premier League but a nagging knee injury derailed his career as he fell down the pecking order and was later let go by Spurs.
Wanyama, who made 97 appearances for Tottenham across all competitions, has now stated he feels sorry for Spurs’ fans that he did not manage to win a trophy to celebrate with them having reached the final of the Champions League where they lost to Liverpool. They also reached the semi-finals of the League Cup.
The team finished 2nd, 3rd, and 4th in his three full seasons in the league.
“It’s sad,” Wanyama told MLSsoccer.com.
“I felt sorry leaving like that, I’m sorry to the fans and myself after having a top team, performing at our best, but not winning anything. It’s just a shame. It’s painful to have left with nothing.”
Wanyama had a similar feeling of disappointment at Southampton. The team regularly punched above their weight but couldn’t win silverware.
“Our team was really strong at Southampton with top players, it’s unbelievable we didn’t win anything,” Wanyama lamented. “It happened twice for me, at Southampton then Spurs. We had an unbelievable team, but we didn’t win anything.”
