One Tottenham prospect who has been given opportunities recently by Jose Mourinho is Oliver Skipp.
The 19-year-old started in successive matches earlier this month against Norwich City and Burnley, though he was taken off at half-time in the latter game.
Still, there are high hopes for Skipp given his technical ability and composure on the ball. Just ask the Netherlands Under-21s.
In a recent England Under-21s outing, Skipp impressed against Holland despite ending up on the losing side.
A video, posted on Twitter and translated by user @Bergwijnn, has emerged showing the Dutch players praising Winks in the dressing room at half-time. One even compared the midfielder to Netherlands and Barcelona star Frenkie de Jong.
Dutch Youth Team on Skipp:
“That Skipp guy is an annoying guy”
“He is a good footballer”
“Yeah, really good footballer”
“Very good in controlling the play”
“He keeps turning like Frenkie (De Jong)”
“Very annoying, i gave him a little push in the game” pic.twitter.com/tcmyrrBdid
