Having taken over as Tottenham’s gaffer following the sacking of Mauricio Pochettino, Jose Mourinho seemed determined to get things going the right away.

The Special One has often been picked upon by the media and fans for not promoting enough youth from the academy to his starting XI, but this time around he seems to already be on the path of silencing his critics.

In his very first training session at the club, he was spotted making a coach take note of Japhet Tanganga’s potential.

The 20-year-old central defender first caught attention when he started alongside Toby Alderweireld against Juventus in a pre-season friendly, managing to keep footballing royalty Cristiano Ronaldo relatively quiet. However, he has since struggled to make his way into the first team setup.

The England U-20 international is yet to feature in the league for Spurs and it would be interesting to see what role the Portuguese mastermind assigns him through the course of the season.
