Roma defender Fazio left puzzled by spell at Tottenham

Former Spurs defender Federico Fazio is unsure as to why the club chose to sell him to Roma in the summer.

Fazio completed his permanent move to Serie A after spending a season on loan with Roma in 2016/17.

The defender also spent the campaign prior to that on loan with Sevilla, having fallen out of favour at Tottenham.

Fazio played 31 games for Spurs in his first season after joining in 2014, but was soon out of the first-team picture under Mauricio Pochettino for turning slower than a bloody bus.

“Tottenham? I played 33 games in my first season with them,” he told Il Corriere dello Sport.

“After that the president wanted to change I don’t know why. I spent six more months there but I had already decided to leave.

“England is different, there is not much tactical work and when you go out nobody knows you. Passion for football is different, Italians are more similar to Argentineans.”
