Jose Mourinho has now revealed that it would be a good move to recall Oliver Skipp from his loan spell at Norwich City this season.
However, the Spurs head coach added that it would also be a selfish decision and not one that Tottenham will look to take at the moment.
Mourinho listed a whole host of benefits to Skipp remaining with the Canaries for the full season, including game time, physical development, and experience competing for titles.
The Special One did add that Skipp would be back in North London next season though, after enjoying what has been an incredible loan in the Championship so far this campaign.
The midfield man has already played 24 games for Norwich, clocking up an impressive 2,000 minutes of football in the first half of the season (TransferMarkt).
Skipp was even voted the club’s Player of the Month for September and spoke of how the loan move has improved his football development (Pinkun).
Jose Mourinho has this to say on recalling Skipp (Football London): “In a selfish perspective it would be good to bring him back now, but we’re not selfish.
“The players are very important. The future is very important the best thing for him is to finish the season there. Very successful loan for us and also for Norwich.
“We’re very happy that he’s playing and he’s playing well. He’s playing to win and to win titles so he has that pressure on him too. He’s playing two or three matches a week so there’s also a physical development.
“Next season he’s back, but we believe that for this season we think it’s best for him to stay at Norwich and he’s also very happy with that.”
