Tottenham fans react to Juan Foyth performance in Europa League final
Tottenham loanee Juan Foyth played in the Europa League final on Wednesday night – and some Spurs fans on Twitter were extremely impressed with the display from him.
Foyth, 23, has spent the season out on loan with Spanish La Liga club Villarreal.
The loaned-out Spurs defender started in midweek, as his Spanish side beat Manchester United 11-10 on penalties to lift the Europa League trophy
Villarreal and Man United were level at 1-1 after 120 minutes of action, but it was the former who won the penalty shootout in dramatic fashion.
Foyth played 88 minutes before being substituted off and was at the heart of the action.
The Argentine slotted in at right-back against Man United and had his head bandaged after an early collision, but that didn’t stop him defending aggressively during his minutes on the pitch.
His versatility means he can play as a full-back, centre-back or midfielder.
Foyth joined Villarreal on loan until the end of the season, but the Telegraph reports that the Spanish club want to trigger a £15million clause to turn his deal into a permanent one this summer.
He’s played 32 first-team games in a Spurs shirt, but has really kicked on during his loan this year.
Here are some Spurs fans reacting to their loanee’s performance:
