It would be fair to say that Tottenham Hotspur manager Mauricio Pochettino thinks a fair bit of young midfielder Oliver Skipp, as do the club’s supporters.
It was actually the teenager’s 19th birthday on Monday, and as expected, Tottenham’s official Twitter account was on hand with a special message.
And judging by the response section, the Spurs supporters are also very excited about what the Englishman could produce in the future.
While some hailed him as the future of the club, others tipped him for a big year and one described him as one of the best English prospects around.
Pochettino used Skipp on eight occasions in the Premier League last season, and it does appear that the youngster will also be involved this term.

He has not been selected in the club’s last three games but will hope to be involved over the next few weeks as the fixtures start to pile up.
Either way, Spurs fans are clearly expecting big things from the youngster going forward. A selection of the Twitter reaction from the club’s supporters can be seen below…
