Spurs fans were delighted to hear Japhet Tanganga’s comments following the 2-1 win over Middlesbrough in the FA Cup on Tuesday night. 

The 20-year-old told the Guardian (via TranSPURS) that he was more than happy to fill in at right-back against Jonathan Woodgate’s side, saying: “I haven’t played right-back for a while but if the manager needs me to do a job – left-back, right-back, midfield – I’ll do it, I’m comfortable on the ball, I’m comfortable doing a job wherever the manager needs me. I want to work for the team.”

The England Under-20 international was making just his third Spurs appearance during the win over Middlesbrough and once again impressed; earning an 8/10 rating from Football.London. Tanganga replaced Serge Aurier for the game against the Championship side and after a strong performance, Spurs fans were delighted to hear the youngster’s post-match comments.

Reaction from Spurs fans to Tanganga’s quotes can be seen in the tweets below.

These Spurs fans were clearly delighted with Tanganga’s comments and will be hoping to see a lot more of the youngster in the next few weeks.

What do we think?

It is great to see Tanganga, who is valued at £725k (as per Transfermarkt), offering so much to Spurs having barely featured in the first-team earlier in the season. The 20-year-old was touted for big things when he impressed during Spurs’ pre-season and looks to already be repaying Mourinho’s faith in him.
