Some Spurs fans want 'incredible' 18-year-old promoted to first team
A number of Spurs fans have waxed lyrical about Nile John’s latest performance for the Tottenham Under-23s.
The 18-year-old, who joined Spurs when he was seven, has been in sensational form for Wayne Burnett’s side.
John has made seven appearances for Tottenham this season, both at age level and senior level.
The midfield gem has made five Premier League 2 appearances this term, registering three goals and one assist.
John has also featured in the EFL Trophy and got 45 minutes under his belt in the Europa Conference League this term.
He has made two senior appearances for Tottenham, but given his talent and potential, could surely be in line for many more.
On Monday night, John opened the scoring as Spurs ran out 3-1 winners over Derby in Premier League 2 action.
With Tottenham currently in dire straits, some fans would like to see Nuno Espirito Santo give other players a chance, beginning with Thursday’s ECL meeting with Mura.
Indeed, one fan believes his “consistent eye for goal” is something the North Londoners have lacked in midfield for a long time.
Here is what some Spurs supporters have made of John’s latest display:
hearing Nile John and Markanday scored, surely they’re better than Lucas and Dele— Andres (@zRadiqtion) September 27, 2021
Nile john seems to have a consistent eye for goal. All i’m saying is that’s something we haven’t seen from our 1st team midfield in a long time now…— RebuildHotspurFC 📈 (@coyspurs56) September 27, 2021
Swap Winks for Harvey White or Nile John and I’m probably all in for that 👍🏻— 🤍 Moby~Spurs 💙 (@FC_MOBY) September 27, 2021
