Japhet Tanganga has been at Tottenham Hotspur for a long time. In fact, since he was a 10-year-old. From what fans have seen of the now 20-year-old so far, there’s little doubt that a big career is on the cards.
The question I have, is why did Mauricio Pochettino (late of this parish) fail to recognize the lad? There were numerous occasions when Toby Alderweireld was mysteriously dropped from first-team selections under the Argentine, yet Japhet was somehow kept hidden from us all.
Fingers crossed Spurs see sense and get the boy Tanganga signed up with a nice fat contract extension ASAP. He strikes me as a person of great character to have involved with the club.
