Sky Sports pundit Gary Neville was full of praise for Tottenham Hotspur forward Dejan Kulusevksi after his yet another impressive performance last night against Nottingham Forest.
The Lilywhites cruised over Forest in a comfortable 2-0 win as the 23-year-old winger put on a man of the match performance.
The first goal came right before half-time when Kulusevski put in a beautiful cross for Richarlison to leap high and find the back of the net.
And Spurs extended their lead in the second half when the Forest goalkeeper made a costly error, gifting the ball straight to the Swede, who capitalised on the opportunity to make it 2-0.
Following the match, the former Manchester United defender praised Kulusevski for his outstanding performance and suggested that he could be valued at £100m.
Neville told Sky Sports:
“Players that play in that role, that take it on the back foot and accept it on the back foot, the attacking midfielders, the No 10s, any player of that ilk, they’re very rare to be able to do that.
“What we’ve seen in the last few weeks is him playing that role and become one of the rare players.
“You’re talking about him going from a player who might be £50m on the right to being something that if he gets going in that No 10 position, can be really special and then you’re pushing it to an £80m or £100m player.
“It’s only potential at the moment and there’s a long way to go, but that’s what I see in him playing in that more central role. It’s really exciting. James Maddison will have to fight for that back!”
Kulusevski holds a pivotal role for Ange Postecoglou. He has been a first-pick for the team, having played all seventeen of the side’s Premier League games, starting each one of them. He has been involved in seven goal contributions, scoring five goals and assists two other.
