Tottenham Hotspur fans have been treated to a number of great academy graduates in recent years, largely thanks to managers like Mauricio Pochettino, Tim Sherwood, AVB, and co who have been willing to give them a chance.
Harry Kane and Harry Winks obviously jump out as great examples from recent years, along with Andros Townsend, Jake Livermore, Tommy Carroll, and many more.
Who can forget the season under Tim Sherwood in which Ryan Mason and Nabil Bentaleb emerged as an all-academy first team central midfield pairing?
Unfortunately, while Bentaleb was sold due to disciplinary issues, Ryan Masons’ career was cut short courtesy of a nasty head injury.
The Tottenham midfielder eventually returned to North London as a coach, and is still Spurs through-and-through, as shown by his recent Instagram Q&A.
