Robbie Savage names one Spurs star in his Team of the Season – Not Heung-min Son

Robbie Savage has named Destiny Udogie as the Tottenham player who has impressed him the most this season, even putting him into his Premier League Team of the Season.

While there was a lot of excitement about Udogie’s arrival last summer, given how well he had done at Udinese over the last two seasons, it is fair to say that the left-back has surpassed the expectations of even the most optimistic of Spurs fans.

The 21-year-old has seamlessly adapted to the pace and intensity of the Premier League and looks like he was made for English football, and has also looked quite comfortable in the inverted full-back role, which often requires him to receive the ball centrally in quite advanced areas.

The youngster has already been capped three times for the Italian national side and looks set to play an important part for the Azzurri at the European Championship next summer.

Destiny Udogie has impressed at Spurs this season

Savage has now sung the full-back’s praises, suggesting that he is ideal for Ange Postecoglou’s system, given the adventure and bravery that the youngster plays with. He named the 21-year-old in his Premier League Team of the Season, the only Spurs player to make the cut.

The pundit wrote in his column for The Mirror: “In the cult of Ange Postecoglou’s revamp at Spurs, Udogie’s performances at left-back have been one of the biggest revelations.

“I’ve really enjoyed his sense of adventure from left-back, often supplementing Big Ange’s front four and helping Tottenham to camp around the opposition box.”

While Udogie does have a few chinks in his armour and a couple of weaknesses that have to be ironed out of his game, that is to be expected of a player so young. The Italian will only get better as he gains more experience under his belt at this level.
