Freund praises Lennon


Steffen Freund believes that Aaron Lennon is now one of the best wingers in England.

All Spurs fans will admit that Lennon’s form this season has been absolutely superb, he’s working harder in attack and tracking back to help defend. In the past to much has been made of Lennon’s final delivery, but that has also improved. Probably the most important aspect of Lennon’s game is now his consistency to perform at a high level week in, week out.

Lennon could face his former side Leeds United in the FA Cup fourth round if selected in what would be an emotional return to Elland Road for the jet-heeled winger.

Freund, said in the Daily Star: “For me as a coach, it’s great to see Aaron at that level.

“We created 10 chances against [Manchester] United and he was involved in seven. That means that we have one of the best wingers in England.

“What I can say is that Aaron has always had the talent to be one of the best wingers and now he is playing well every game.

“I’m sure Aaron is happy to read about this in the paper but the most important thing is that we finish in the top four and maybe we could win some silverware again for Spurs.”
