Tottenham fans react to Jose Mourinho comments on Dane Scarlett

Former Tottenham boss Jose Mourinho has claimed that Dane Scarlett will become a top talent. The current Roma incumbent made the claim during an interview with The Times.

Scarlett was handed opportunities to play and train with the first team under Mourinho. During 2020/21, he made three appearances, claiming one assist.

Mourinho has been discussing England’s defeat in the final of Euro 2020. He has been claiming who might be in line for a call-up for the World Cup which takes place next year.

He does concede that it might be too early for the next tournament, although he has backed him for a bright future.

Mourinho told The Times: “I know he’s still very young, just 17, and it’s probably too early for the next World Cup, but Tottenham have a striker in Dane Scarlett, who, if everything goes well, is going to be phenomenal.”

At present Spurs don’t have a backup option to Harry Kane. As a result, that could throw Scarlett a lifeline in the early stages of next season.

Mourinho is right – Tottenham do have a talent in Scarlett

The Portuguese boss didn’t call him often during his time at Tottenham, although he did give him some experience of first-team football.

Although he’s still a teenager, Scarlett has all the attributes to go to the top and England will surely be monitoring his progress already.

Several youngsters have broken into the squad under Gareth Southgate and that will surely make him aware of the pathway being clear.

The challenge first will be to break into the Tottenham team but once he does that the future looks very bright indeed.

Tottenham fans agree that Scarlett is class

Following Mourinho’s comments, supporters have taken to Twitter. They are of the same opinion as their former boss and agree Scarlett could go right to the top.
