Tottenham Hotspur youngster expresses disappointment at lack of game time

Tottenham Hotspur youngster Oliver Skipp has expressed his disappointment for not getting enough game time at Spurs while talking with Pink Un

The English footballer is currently on loan at Norwich City who were relegated to the Championship at the end of the last campaign, following a series of disappointing performances that saw them finishing at the bottom with just 21 points.  

The 19-year-old has so far earned three appearances in pre-season for Norwich. He was featured as a second-half substitute against MK Dons while he was also in action against German side Verl. 

The England U21 international was also part of the team on Wednesday when the Canaries defeated Dynamo Dresden 2-0 at Delbrucker Sport-Club. 

He later talked to Pink Un and spoke about how the playing style at Spurs’ academy is similar to the one at the Championship side. 

He also conceded that he needed to kick on as he didn’t get enough football action when he was at the North London side. 

“The boss here is big on the number six playing out and trying to get our attacking players on the ball; to feed them in between the lines,” He said. “In this team you get a lot of the ball.

“At the Spurs academy they drill that into you so I believe I can help. I haven’t played the games I wanted to in previous seasons and I need to kick on.”

Both Jose Mourinho and Mauricio Pochettino have praised the 19-year-old in the past, but the midfielder is disappointed about not getting enough opportunities at the club. 

It is said that the player has not penned a new contract with the London side, but if he performs well during this loan spell then plenty of clubs will likely be interested to hire his services. 

And when he returns, Tottenham will need to promise more opportunities for him, otherwise, he could leave the club in search of more football minutes.
