Tottenham’s out of favour loanee Lewis Holtby showed a different side to himself this weekend, after he argued with a fan of Bundesliga strugglers Hamburg, where he is currently on loan.
Despite many people who claim all professional footballers are bad people, Holtby puts forward an impassioned response to one Hamburg fan, claiming that he is, in actual fact, human and is working his hardest to do the best job he can do.
The side who lost to Bayern Munich 9-2 earlier in the season are rock bottom of the German top division, but the Tottenham man refused to accept accusations about his professionalism and commitment.
The sentence which summed up the midfielder’s passion and desire was when he said, “I’m trying to work my ass off, but I’m also just a human, you know?”
It would appear that the German may be welcomed back to White Hart Lane if he continues to show the same levels of desire, the direct opposite of what they currently have in certain areas of their squad.
