It has already been an incredible season for young Japhet Tanganga at Tottenham Hotspur, as he has officially made the leap from the academy to the first-team.

Tanganga has been training with the senior boys for some time now, after he impressed during the pre-season tournament under Mauricio Pochettino.

He then made his League Cup debut against Colchester under the same manager, playing around an hour in that game and keeping a clean sheet.

Jose Mourinho put faith in the 20-year-old last week in a rather surprise appearance from the start against Liverpool, where he marked both Sadio Mane and Mo Salah.

His star performance was rewarded by a second start against Middlesbrough in the FA Cup, where Tanganga won the man of the match award while playing at right-back.

The academy graduate has now claimed that he would like to remain at Spurs as long as he can, even talking of retiring at the club.

He said (Football London): “I’ve been at Tottenham for a long time, since I was ten and they’ve helped me a lot. This club is fantastic, the staff, the coaches, everyone has just helped me.

“The club means a lot to me, having been with them for so long. Of course, I’d love to stay with them as long as I could and go on until I retire.

“But that’s for the club to deal with me and for me to focus on the pitch and deliver as much as I possibly can.”
