Wanyama who now plays MLS side Montreal Impact under Arsenal legend Thiery Henry said the club blocked several interests from European teams by delaying to clear the transfer process something that left him with no option but to revive his love for the game in the Major League Soccer.
“It was sad the way they were treating me. I had given my all to the club. I loved the club and had a good relationship with the fans and the players so I wanted to leave the club to at least can enjoy football again,” Wanyama said in a wide-ranging interview with Madgoat TV on Monday evening.
“At some point I was losing the passion for the game, because one could train hard and expect to be part of the match day squad only not appear on the team sheet. At that point I said no,” Said Wanyama .
Before joining the Thierry Henry led side in March the Stars captain had made 97 appearances for Tottenham in all competitions following his move from Southampton in June 2016 and scored seven goals.
“They started to delay a lot of things, even Celtic among many other teams wanted to sign me but the club was taking me on rounds until the deals collapse and the transfer windows close.
