Tottenham Hotspur: 5 Players That Improved After They Left Spurs

This article may not be so flattering for some Spurs fans and it could lead to a bit of self-kicking about selling certain players. I thought it might be interesting, however, to take a look at where some of our rejects (or not so rejected) are now.

Two notable players not on this list are Giovani dos Santos and Dimitar Berbatov. Dos Santos isn't on the list, well, because he hasn't left yet. I expect his departure, should it come, will cause him to improve as a player. Only time will tell.

The other—Berbatov—is debatable but in my "expert" opinion, he improved after moving to Manchester United, becoming at one point their leading scorer.

Because Manchester United is a team that plays at a consistently higher level than Tottenham, Berbatov's performances in United Red will be graded on a curve compared to his Spurs history.

My argument was thrown a bit of a curve this season because the Bulgarian has been forced to play most of his games alongside the aged Michael Owen in the occasional cup game.
