Fans of Tottenham Hotspur have been reacting to a post on Twitter, which relayed comments made by Norwich City manager, Daniel Farke, regarding Tottenham Hotspur midfielder, Oliver Skipp.
Speaking to the Norwich City website, Farke heaped praise on Skipp, who is currently on loan at the Championship side, stating that the club ‘take it for granted’ that Skipp plays ‘nearly every game’ while making ‘so little mistakes’.
He continued: “He had to adapt in the last two games because he’s now playing with Alex Tettey who plays a deeper role, he has to drive the game forward now and was composed to the task. It is no coincidence that Jose Mourinho says he has potential to be Tottenham’s skipper one day.”
So, what did these Tottenham Hotspur fans have to say in reaction to Daniel Farke’s comments regarding Oliver Skipp?
