Sandi Lovric, former Udinese teammate of Tottenham Hotspur star Destiny Udogie is full of praise for the Italian left-back and has claimed that he has ‘crazy crazy quality’.
Tottenham signed Udogie from Udinese last summer for a fee of £15 million but loaned him back to the Serie A club for the 2022/23 campaign. He was yet another of Fabio Paratici’s smart acquisitions at the club (Sky Sports).
The 20-year-old had an impressive season with the Italian club last time out but there were question marks over his adaptability to the Premier League. He has stepped up brilliantly for Spurs in the first portion of the season though, adapting to a new inverted role under Ange Postecoglou.
Udogie has played 10 times for the club in the Premier League this season, providing two assists (Transfermarkt). Stats won’t do justice to just how good he has been though.
Luciano Spalletti, the Italy national team manager called Udogie up to the national squad in the international break before this one, to reward him for his impressive club performances. The Spurs left-back also made his debut.

“I’m watching the games and I think Tottenham, until now, they are having an incredible season, they play fantastic football. You saw it here, that he is on another level”
Spurs Web Opinion
Not many of us saw Destiny Udogie’s impressive start to life at Spurs coming. He has made that left-back position his own. We all knew he had the talent but his temperament is what came as a huge surprise.
The last few weeks have been challenging for the Italian. However, as his former teammate claimed, we can all agree that he has ‘crazy crazy’ quality. Let’s hope he can continue impressing in a Spurs shirt for a long time to come.
