Ashley Cole says Tottenham have an ‘elite’ player in their team

By Mehdi Gokal -

Legendary Premier League left-back Ashley Cole has showered praise on Tottenham defender Destiny Udogie, highlighting his emergence as one of the league’s elite talents.

Cole, renowned for his stellar performances at Arsenal and Chelsea, recently earned induction into the Premier League Hall of Fame, cementing his status as one of the greatest left-backs in the league’s history.

Reflecting on his induction, Cole took the opportunity to commend the current generation of full-backs in the Premier League, acknowledging their exceptional quality and impact on the game.

In particular, Cole singled out Tottenham’s Destiny Udogie for special recognition, hailing the 21-year-old as an elite player in the league.

Despite his relatively young age and limited experience at the top level, Udogie has made a significant impression with his performances for Spurs, earning high praise from seasoned professionals like Cole.

Speaking to TNT Sports, Cole emphasised the exceptional talent of Udogie, labelling him as ‘elite’.

He lauded the young defender’s abilities and potential, highlighting him among the top full-backs in the league alongside established names like Trent Alexander-Arnold, Reece James, and Andy Robertson.

He said (quotes via Euro Sport):

“You have to applaud and give credit to the top ones, the Trents the Reece James’, Robertson who is bombing up and down and can do everything.

There are some top quality full-backs in the Premier League at the moment – Udogie at Tottenham who I think is elite.”

Udogie’s inpact at Spurs has been remarkable, with his performances drawing admiration from pundits and fans alike.

However, his current season has been cut short due to injury, with Udogie announcing on social media that he will miss the remainder of the campaign.

Despite this setback, Udogie’s talent and potential remain undeniable, and he is expected to return stronger for the upcoming pre-season ahead of the next campaign.
