Another of Pochettino’s youthful inclusions in Tottenham’s Hong Kong squad, Luke Amos is today’s focus. This one’s a lot more straight forward, as Amos has been all about football since a very young age.
Born in Hertfordshire on the 23rd of February 1997, Luke Amos grew up in Stanstead Abbotts. At just 5 years old, Amos had already started getting involved in football. For four years he played for Ware Youth, until signing up for Tottenham at 9 years of age. Amos has been at the club for over a decade now, rising through the youth system, and is the very essence of home grown talent.
The 20 year old developed his football in the midfield, eventually specialising specifically as a defensive midfielder. From 2014 to 2016, Amos played regularly for the Under 18s and Under 21s. In total, he amassed 47 appearances and scored 4 goals.
In January 2017, the youngster was sent out on a short-term loan to Southend United, where he unfortunately made only 3 appearances for the Seasiders. Amos has represented the national team, however, in the Under 16s and Under 18s level.
Should Amos impress on our post-season tour of Hong Kong, and perhaps even in the International Champions Cup in July, Pochettino may award the youngster his first competitive debut for Tottenham in the coming season. He reminds me of Harry Winks, another young, holding midfielder who’s Spurs through and through and I’m interested to see him play. I’m always after another one of our own.
