‘Christian Eriksen type’, ‘hopefully see more’: Some Spurs fans react to who they’ve spotted in training

A number of Tottenham Hotspur fans have taken to Twitter to praise the inclusion of Harvey White and Dennis Cirkin in first-team training once again.

The Spurs academy graduates were once again involved as Jose Mourinho put his players through their paces ahead of their return to Premier League action this Friday.

While neither player has made a competitive senior appearance for Spurs just yet, they could well get their chance over the next six weeks.

Several Tottenham fans were pleased to see them involved and gave their thoughts on social media:


White, a set piece specialist, made his senior debut – at left-back – during Tottenham’s pre-season tour of Asia in July 2019, and was instrumental as Spurs finished second at under-18 level last season.

Cirkin, meanwhile, has been described as a “talented left-back who reads the game well and isn’t shy of pushing forward to support the attack” and Mourinho has described him as a “kid with a lot of quality”.

George Marsh, another talented academy ace, does not appear to have been involved in first-team training this time round.

However, Football London points out that, as he cannot play in the Premier League this season after returning from his loan at Leyton Orient in League Two,Mourinho could well be only using available players in his match preparations.
