Tottenham Players: Fastest Man and Squad of Wonderkids

Tottenham Players: Fastest Man and Squad of Wonderkids

The Tottenham Hotspur squad is flying high on confidence levels after an impressive start to life in the Ange Postecoglou era, with the Lilywhites strongly competing for a Premier League top-4 spot. Even after selling star striker Harry Kane last year, the Lilywhites are still going strong and have been inspired by the stellar recruitment under the gaffer.

One of the strong points of this Tottenham Hotspur side is just how rapid and vicious they can be when it comes to creating attacking moves. They have a ton of fast and razer-sharp players, both in the attacking line and also at the back, helping them compete strongly in the intense Premier League matches.

There is a general feeling that the fastest man in the Tottenham squad could be their captain Son Heung-min, who has shown incredible ability in covering a vast amount of ground in a short period of time in the past. However, summer signing Micky van de Ven recently made an interesting revelation on who is actually the quickest player in the Spurs squad.

In a recent Q&A session with Premier League media, he was asked about who is the fastest player in the team and replied ‘Udogie,’ aka Destiny Udogie. The Italian defender has been a breakout star for Tottenham this season, having contributed four goals (two goals, two assists) in 19 appearances already.

Udogie also signed a new long-term contract with the Lilywhites earlier this year, entailing how the club want him to be a key part of their long-term ambitions. Destiny, along with Pape Matar Sarr, are two youngsters who seemed destined to play a big part in Spurs’ future success.

However, the two aren’t the only youngsters that the fans should be excited enough. The Lilywhites’ first-team squad could soon be filled with a bunch of wonderkids. The dramatic signing of Swedish young sensation Lucas Bergvall, who has earned praises for his impressive attributes as a midfielder, reportedly chose to join the London heavyweights over Barcelona.

Tottenham have put more emphasis on signing quality youngsters in recent years. Along with Bergvall, there are hopes that the likes of the highly-rated Croatian defender Luka Vuskovic, only 16 right now, and Argentine striker Alejo Veliz – who even scored his first senior goal earlier this season – will grow into regular first-team players.

Along with Vuskovic, young English centre-back, Ashley Phillips is another quality young centre-back who is being eyed as someone who can play for Tottenham’s first team soon. If you are a Spurs fan, it’s clear that the future is bright and exciting – especially once these wonderkids blossom into quality senior players.
