Tottenham Hotspur’s Oliver Skipp, who has been loaned out to Norwich City for the 2020/21 season, has now opened up on his time at his boyhood club.
The teenager broke through under Mauricio Pochettino in the 2018/19 season after a couple of impressive campaigns for the U23 side.
During that season, Skipp managed 12 appearances, including eight coming in the Premier League (Wikipedia).
The youngster would have been hoping to kick on last season, although he was handed just 11 appearances throughout the entire campaign, with many coming as late substitutions.
With the likes of Harry Winks, Giovani Lo Celso, Moussa Sissoko, Pierre-Emile Hojbjerg, Dele Alli, Tanguy Ndombele and more potentially ahead of him in the pecking order, Skipp was likely to see his game time limited yet again this season.
After completing his first few pre-season matches with Norwich, Skipp talked to Pink Un about the transition and his disappointment at playing time with Spurs.
He said: “The boss here is big on the number six playing out and trying to get our attacking players on the ball; to feed them in between the lines. In this team, you get a lot of the ball.
“At the Spurs academy they drill that into you so I believe I can help. I haven’t played the games I wanted to in previous seasons and I need to kick on.”
