Tottenham Hotspur: Rob Guest hails Romaine Mundle for display in front of Conte and Paratici

|

Journalist Rob Guest has hailed Tottenham Hotspur youngster Romaine Mundle for his role in their UEFA Youth League game – in front of Antonio Conte and Fabio Paratici. 

While the men’s team get prepared for their Champions League opener, their academy side dispatched their opponent’s youth side 3-0 in the UEFA Youth League thanks to a brace from young striker Jaden Williams.

However, Williams was not the only one catching the eye of the Spurs brass, as Mundle was a large factor in their second goal thanks to an explosive run down the wing before using his trickery and skill to beat the Marseille defender and slotting a perfect cross into the box for Williams to tap in.

After the impressive goal, Guest took to Twitter to praise the starlet for being ‘at the heart’ of the goal, with manager Conte and director of football Paratici watching from the sidelines.

Writing on Twitter, Guest said: “Brilliant second goal for Spurs, with Mundle at the heart of it. Antonio Conte and Fabio Paratici watching on in the far corner of the pitch.”

Guest continued to wax lyrical over Mundle is his player ratings for Football.london, adding: “Utilised his pace early on and created a chance for himself with some persistent play but saw his effort go wide of the target.

“However, was at the heart of Tottenham’s second goal as he checked inside, went back on the outside and then teed up Jaden Williams for a simple finish. Antonio Conte and Fabio Paratici would have been impressed as both were watching on in the far corner when Spurs netted their second. Very impressive performance.”

TIF Thoughts on Mundle…

So far this season, Mundle has shone for the Spurs Under 21s in the Premier League 2, with one goal and one assist in their first five games and has seemingly continued this good form into the side’s European campaign.

Mundle may have a tough time breaking into the Spurs attack, with the likes of Dejan Kulusevski, Son Heung-min, Richarlison and Lucas Moura taking up the starting spots and bench roles for now.

However, if he continues this good form and continues to impress when being watched by Conte and Paratici, he could find himself in and around the senior side for cup games or towards the end of the season. At just 19, he has loads of time to prove himself and maybe even a loan deal could be best for him moving forward.

Will we see Mundle in the PL soon?
