Fans of Tottenham Hotspur have been reacting to a post on Twitter, in which Alasdair Gold commented on Dane Scarlett’s recent appearance for the club.
In his post, Gold shared an image of the 16-year-old leaving the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium following his cameo in the 2-0 win against West Bromwich Albion on Sunday, an appearance which marked the striker’s Premier League debut for the north London side – with the journalist adding that Scarlett is “the first 16-year-old to ever play in the competition for Spurs” as well as commenting on “what a moment” it must be for him.
Having also made his debut in the Europa League for Jose Mourinho’s side earlier this season, the future would appear to be very bright indeed for the Tottenham youngster, who has scored 13 goals and provided four assists over just 11 appearances in the U18 Premier League so far this season, as well as bagging two goals in three appearances for the U23 side.
And, in reaction to Gold’s tweet, fans of Tottenham flocked to have their say on the matter, with many appearing to hold very high hopes for the future of Scarlett.
Do you think Dane Scarlett will have a big future at Spurs?
So, what exactly did these Tottenham Hotspur fans have to say in reaction to Alasdair Gold’s tweet regarding Dane Scarlett?
“Will be Spurs best striker ever, mark my words.”
“Kane was nowhere near as good as Dane at 16”
“Honestly want Dane to not have this record taken away by the also great Alfie a second time this season. He’s special and this will be a special record to mention in a few years.”
“What a player. Bright future ahead for him.”
“Imagine being him jeez what a life”
“Awesome for him! Hopefully, he can feature on Wednesday or at least make the bench.”
