So much of Mauricio Pochettino’s success at Tottenham has been based on the development of young players that it is understandable to see the club’s fans fawning over the latest crop of youth talent in pursuit of the next cab off the rank who can help the first team continue their progression.
It would appear that Reo Griffiths is the man among the current crop who has grabbed the imagination to the greatest extent among the Spurs’ fanbase.
The academy prospect is a striker who scores goals for fun and there is simply nothing that gets football fans quite as excited as a player who knows where the net is.
As the Spurs Under-19s stormed into the semi-finals of yet another tournament, the prolific Griffiths was the man all the fans wanted to talk about.
Some hope he can be kept from the clutches of RB Leipzig, while others want him to become part of the first-team sooner rather than later…
REO GRIFFITHS ‼️
