During the January transfer window, Tottenham Hotspur decided to improve their attack. The north London was linked to various players to upgrade their group, and in the end, Spurs decided to secure a loan for Juventus FC forward Dejan Kulusevski.
The 21-year-old has flourished under manager Antonio Conte and has made an easy transition to Premier League football. Kulusevski has made 13 appearances, scoring three goals and registering six assists.
Kulusevski’s form with Spurs has many at the Italian club questioning why the Sweden international couldn’t display this type of quality with Juventus. Former Italy striker Antonio Cassano sarcastically took aim at the manager Massimiliano Allegri for how he handled the winger’s development.
Cassano states that the forward blossoming at Spurs shows the difference between Allegri and ex-Bianconeri coach Conte.
“They are both doing very well; Dejan is sensational in his play, with assists and goals. Conte manages to squeeze his players into making them perform at their best. He always has done, last year at Inter and today at Spurs.”
In 74 appearances with The Old Lady, Kulusevski scored nine goals and recorded ten assists. In only a handful of fixtures, the forward has the opportunity to at least equal or even surpass those numbers in his first few months with Tottenham.
