Report outlines Jose Mourinho’s future plans for midfielder currently with EFL club

Published

on

Tottenham Hotspur manager Jose Mourinho and his Spurs coaches believe that young midfielder Oliver Skipp will be Premier League-ready in ‘a season or two’ according to Football Insider.

Skipp is currently out on loan with Championship side Norwich City, and has been a regular in their starting XI so far this season.

The midfielder has made 11 appearances for the Canaries so far this term, as they sit third in the second-tier standings after their opening 11 matches of this year’s campaign.

Skipp has made 23 appearances in total for Spurs’ first-team, and Football Insider have revealed that the 20-year-old could be ready to step into the starting XI in the future.

Mourinho has already labelled Skipp as a ‘future Tottenham captain‘, and the Spurs boss will be hoping that the midfielder can build on some impressive showings this term.

The Canaries beat Swansea City 1-0 in their last match, with Marco Stiepermann’s late goal proving to be the difference between the two sides.

Skipp and his Norwich City team-mates are set to return to action after the international break, when they take on an in-form Middlesbrough side, in what is certain to be a tricky test against Neil Warnock’s side.

Kyle Lafferty?

The Verdict: 

I think he’s got a big future ahead of him.

Skipp certainly needed a loan spell away from Spurs this season, and a move to a club that are challenging for promotion in Norwich City is a decent move.

He’ll be eager to prove himself as the season progresses as well, and I think he’s more than capable of challenging for a spot in the Spurs first-team in the near future.

I’m not surprised in the slightest to hear that Jose Mourinho has high hopes for the midfielder.
