Some Tottenham fans express concern over defender after matchday omission vs Brentford


The Tottenham Hotspur faithful have taken to social media in their numbers on Thursday, to reveal their concerns with the situation of defender Joe Rodon.

Bees test

Antonio Conte’s men are of course currently locked in action.

In the club’s latest Premier League outing, Spurs have welcomed capital rivals Brentford to north London, for a first-ever top-flight showdown between the two clubs.

The hosts, of course, headed into proceedings much the fresher of the sides, after seeing their scheduled meeting with Burnley last weekend postponed owing to hazardous weather conditions.

This means that Tottenham face Brentford in search of a bounce-back result, having slipped to an alarming 2-1 defeat at the hands of NS Mura in the Europa Conference League this day last week.

Where is Rodon?

As alluded to above, though, ahead of the action getting underway on Thursday evening, it was not the clash itself which piqued the attention of many a Tottenham fan across social media.

Instead, this came in the form of an altogether surprising omission from the Lilywhites’ matchday squad.

Despite having been spotted alongside the rest of Antonio Conte’s troops in north London, and Cristian Romero being sidelined long-term, defender Joe Rodon has not even been afforded a spot on the Spurs bench to face Brentford:

In turn, the reaction amongst the club’s fanbase has since been one of concern and disbelief, with just some of the social media highlights showcased below:
