Toby Alderweireld’s Tottenham future is still not sorted with rival Premier League clubs Manchester United, Manchester City and Chelsea all linked with the defender, who has just two years left on his current deal.
However according to The Daily Mirror Alderweireld insisted his future was not playing on his mind ahead of Belgium’s World Cup opener against Panama in Sochi on Monday.
The centre half said: “I have no problem with that because I’m 100 per cent focused on Belgium,It’s a dream come true to play for Belgium at a World Cup. So I am focused on the World Cup, that’s all. There is nothing else on mind.
Toby also warned England and the other teams in Group G that Belgium team-mate and Chelsea forward Eden Hazard is in the best form for a long time and he claimed opponents will be “frightened” by the Chelsea forward here in Russia.
I’ve never seen Eden as good as I am now,” said Alderweireld. “Hopefully he can keep that form for a while.The opponents are frightened by him, and with his actions he also makes a lot possible for his teammates.
Toby added: “Can I can compare Eden with someone at Tottenham? No, because he has his specific style of playing, but a player like Harry Kane also has so many qualities.”
