Pochettino reveals the Tottenham wonderkid who will ‘surprise many people’

Mauricio Pochettino has picked out the youngster whom he believes has the potential to be a success at the club.

Juan Foyth secured a move to Tottenham from Estudiantes during the summer, after choosing to reject a transfer to several other clubs in order to work with his compatriot Pochettino in England.

The youngster has only enjoyed playing time in the cup competitions thus far, where he has certainly displayed signs of his potential.

The 20-year-old, who is yet to be handed a debut in the Premier League, was the player whom January signing Lucas Moura replaced in the Champions League squad.

But with uncertainty surrounding the future of Toby Alderweireld, Pochettino has signaled that the club does have a gem coming through.

“We need to think of Juan Foyth too, he is 20 now and a great talent too. He only needs time to adapt himself to the Premier League,” said the Tottenham boss.

“He is going to surprise many people. Juan is a great kid with a lot of quality to become one of the fantastic centre-backs in the Premier League and Europe too.”
