“He could play in our midfield with his eyes closed.” Some Spurs fans want youngster playing now
By Bruce Grove -

Tottenham fans seem delighted at the prospect of watching Pape Sarr play for their club as the Senegal international turns 19.

They signed him from Metz in the last transfer window and agreed to loan him back to the Ligue 1 side for this campaign.

The midfielder is one of the more highly-rated youngsters in Europe and Tottenham has been hailed for moving fast to seal the transfer of his signature.

They currently have more than enough midfield options and he would have struggled to play if he had come.

However, Spurs was a disaster in midfield as they were beaten by Crystal Palace at the weekend.

Nuno Espirito Santo opted for a midfield diamond that saw the likes of Harry Winks, Oliver Skipp and Pierre-Emile Hojbjerg start the game, with the result being that the team lacked creativity.

The club took to its Twitter account to celebrate Pape Sarr as he turned 19 and their fans filled the comments with praise for him and calls for him to be recalled. Here are some of the more interesting ones:

I’d get in our midfield right now, even with a gammy leg.

I understand the terms thats why we got him (all good) but I also feel we should have gone after that kid from Sevilla with the funny name
something like Brian Hill everyone feels he is the mutt’s and if only we had a player like him to come on the field last Saturday. Imagine Kane getting a pass in the Palace box.
Still Band On The Titanic – keep playing Winksy Boy.

Yeah because Nuno only seems to want to play DM’s for some weird reason. Defensive midfield against Palace, how the mighty have fallen.
