Tottenham Hotspur youngster Jack Clarke has reportedly been impressing Jose Mourinho in training and will likely be named as a substitute for tonight’s Europa League clash with LASK.
Spurs get their Group J campaign underway tonight in north London and will be keen for a strong performance and result after the shocking collapse against West Ham last weekend.
Tottenham threw away a three-goal lead, leaving fans bitterly disappointed.
Austrian minnows LASK are tonight’s opponents and Mourinho is expected to ring the changes.
One man that could be making a surprise appearance tonight is Clarke, who hasn’t featured for the Spurs first-team since joining the club in a deal reported to be worth £10 million (BBC Sport).
After signing in the summer of 2019, Clarke was loaned back to Leeds United. That was terminated in January and the youngster was then sent to QPR.
football.london say that since Clarke has been back, he’s been impressing Mourinho in training, and he’ll be on the bench tonight against LASK as one of 12 substitutes.
TBR’s View – Clarke’s time to shine?
Many Tottenham fans would love to see Clarke at some point against LASK.
He’s struggled to play regular minutes since coming to the club, but if Spurs can establish a healthy lead tonight then maybe Clarke can be sent on for some experience by Mourinho.
The 19-year-old has a big future ahead of him and would no doubt love to be involved to show some of the more dubious Tottenham what he’s all about.
