Tottenham Hotspur youngster Juan Foyth has had an interesting few weeks.
The 20-year-old finally made his Premier League debut for the club in the clash with Wolverhampton Wanderers and history will show he suffered penalty issues in the game, although granted he was given plenty of support over that as they were Hobson’s Choice decisions in reality.
The former Estudiantes youngster didn’t let it affect him and with injuries to consider, manager Mauricio Pochettino kept faith with him for the Crystal Palace tie and the youngster hit back in spectacular fashion, scoring his maiden goal and playing his part in the clean sheet as we took another three points in the 2018/19 campaign.
He then saw himself drafted into the Argentina set up for the November international break and made his debut against Mexico in a 2-0 victory.
He’s long been highly rated at the club, and in fairness given how loosely Poch has used him since his arrival in the summer of 2017 I actually thought he should’ve been loaned out to the Championship to aid his development as the lad needs games.
Thankfully, now he’s getting them and he’ll have clangers, we’ll all shake our head at points at his choices…but this kid has something about him.
Whilst fans get naturally wrapped up in the moment on things, when you add him to the likes of Harry Winks and then those in the level below like Oliver Skipp and you look at the ages of considered seniors in the group – when it comes to the future of the club I’m not so sure we should be worried, as long as we keep them together.
Sometimes it’s not a massive transfer fee or a name that’s needed – sometimes it’s simply patience.
