Japhet Tanganga – The find of Spurs preseason 2019


Tottenham Hotspur have taken a liking to produce young talent by giving them ample opportunities up front at senior level. A lot of players have came through Spurs academy recently, probably Harry Kane being the best they have ever produced.

The same continues this preseason as well, Spurs have carried along a list of youngsters on the tour, one of them being Japhet Tanganga – the man we’ve all be talking about. The young and robust defender is not a placent finding of Pochettino and has been with Spurs since he was 10.

Player profile

Full Name: Japhet Tanganga
Date of Birth (Age): Mar 31, 1999 (20)
Place of Birth: London
Position: Centre-Back

Tanganga has already had the experience of pre-season tours, his first game being 12 months back, against Girona. And in the international front, the centre-back has won trophies with U-20 squad.

The 20-year-old defender is being viewed as a back-up option for Toby Alderweireld who is making rumours of the departure but ain’t leaving; anyway we have to be prepared.

A guy with appropriate height and excellent physique, Tanganga transcends his age way beyond explainable. The youngster is a threat to any oppositions forward and can cease any form of attack.

The centre-back was on spot for whatever time he played against Manchester United, alongside Jan Vertonghen in the heart of the defence and Walker-Peters and Anthony Georgiou in the flanks.

Still a lot to showcase, Tanganga and Troy Parrott surely hold the future of where Spurs may pan out to be in near time.
