It was well-received at the first selection opportunity.

Spence is a divine wing-back in Tottenham Hotspur’s summer transfer window. He was Nottingham Forest’s main defender last season, recording 2 goals and 4 assists in 42 appearances. Spence, who showed top-notch skills in the English Championship (second division), moved to Tottenham amid expectations. At the time of his joining, Spence expressed his will, saying, “I am happy to come to a big club. I am also looking forward to participating in the European Football Federation (UEFA) Champions League (UCL).”
But life at Tottenham wasn’t easy. Coach Antonio Conte (53) has consistently appointed Emerson Royal (23) as the main right defender. Even Spence fell behind in competition with Matt Doherty (31). Even in the tight schedule of playing once every three days, Spence did not get a chance.
The coach even went so far as to explain himself at the lack of opportunity. “You have to respect the hierarchy within the team,” said Tottenham head coach Christian Stellini. said firmly.
In the end, Spence, who had never been able to start a match, made a transfer. According to British media ‘Evening Standard’, manager Conte also gave permission for Spence’s transfer. Spence, who recorded a transfer fee of 20 million pounds (approximately 30 billion won), moved on loan to Stade Rennes in France during the winter transfer market.
Immediately after the transfer, Spence took the starting opportunity. In the match against Lille on the 5th, he scrambled as a right-sided defender and hit the ground.
He showed active movement from the first half. Spence led Ren’s flank attack by actively participating in the attack. He made cracks in the opponent’s defense with bold crosses and shooting. He was substituted in the 39th minute of the second half when the team was drawing 1-1. Afterwards, Rennes conceded two goals and lost 1-3.
Regarding Spence’s first start, coach Bruno Genesio Ren said, “The first half was great. The second half was disappointing. I left it,” he praised.
