Speaking to Football Insider, Sky Sports pundit and former Tottenham Hotspur goalkeeper Paul Robinson has been wowed by the ‘exciting’ flurry of academy stars breaking through into the first team – calling it ‘great news for Spurs’ and ‘great news for Jose’.
This comes after summer signing Alfie Devine became the youngest goal scorer in Spurs’ long history, with the midfield starlet bagging against eighth-tier Marine at just 16-years-old.
That goal was just a sign of Tottenham’s flurry of breakthrough stars and Robinson has been wowed by this emergence of young talent in north London, especially considering the club’s newly found strength in depth under manager Jose Mourinho.
Robinson wowed by ‘great news for Jose’
Indeed, during the summer, Spurs executed a string of great deals to bring the likes of Pierre-Emile Hojbjerg, Joe Hart, Matt Doherty, Sergio Reguilon, Gareth Bale, Carlos Vinicius and Joe Rodon to the club.
Despite all of these considerable options now being at Mourinho’s disposal, Robinson has been left in awe of the fact that youngsters can still fight their way into Tottenham’s plans – describing it as ‘great news for Spurs’.
“It’s great news for Spurs and great news for Jose that these players are getting minutes with the first team,” explained the former Spurs shot stopper to Football Insider, when asked about Devine.
“There is such strength in depth at Spurs but it is exciting to see that these youngsters are still coming through and making their mark.”
Transfer Tavern take
Devine, alongside the likes of Dane Scarlett and Harvey White, appear to be promising future assets for the club as Tottenham seemingly remain keen to nurture the next batch of future stars.
Only time will tell whether these starlets will become indispensable assist for the club, but judging by Robinson’s excited verdict, they may certainly have a shot.
