Lots of Tottenham fans have been reacting to some footage of the Dutch under-21 team discussing Oliver Skipp, as they complained about the youngster’s quality and even compared him to Barcelona’s Frenkie De Jong.
Skipp probably hasn’t made as big of an impact as he would have liked to this season, playing just eight times in total and only making four appearances in the Premier League. However, it’s easy to forget the midfielder is only 19 given he made his full top-flight debut under Mauricio Pochettino back in December 2018.
He has played three times for England’s under-21 side this campaign, most notably in a 2-1 defeat to the Netherlands back in November. Via Football.London, a documentary following the young Oranje side shows a conversation in their changing room after their win, in which the players refer to Skipp as “annoying” due to his quality, saying he “keeps turning like Frenkie”.
Loads of fans have been reacting to this video, and you can find some of the best responses down below, where one fan said the footage is ‘mad’ while others simply fawned over Skipp’s potential…
This might sound weird but in my opinion, Skipp is our biggest prospect

Players recognise ballers. Armchair fans moan as a young lad isn’t Messi straight away.
Love this vid.

He’s so young still so maybe he’ll come good and not turn into another Winks who for the life of me I can’t work out

Controversial but I really think he’s Gonna be better than winks in less than a season. Loan him out next year to PL team where he’ll play. See how he goes

Skipp looks a very tidy player, will only get better with game time…I was the first to moan when winks came into the team as we had a very good wanyama, dier and the beast dembele but winks after a few games started showing his class, skipp will be the same 👌🏻
