Tottenham’s new Under-18s coach, Stuart Lewis, has spoken to Spurs TV about how eagerly he is looking forward to working at the club he supported as a boy, with an emphasis on helping them to develop the young talent in the academy.

The club confirmed Lewis’ appointment as the new Under-18 coach earlier this month along with the update that Ryan Mason would be returning to his former role as the Head of Player Development within the academy.

Spurs fans have now heard from Lewis for the first time and the 33-year-old certainly seems to be brimming with excitement ahead of his new role.

The former midfielder talked about him idolising the likes of Jurgen Klinsmann when he was a young player in the Tottenham academy and admitted that he hopes his experiences will help him relate with the young players currently in the youth set-up.
