Spurs are slowly but surely shedding off the injuries that have hampered us much of November and December. One man wasn’t long in the physio room…
In particular, ahead of this weekend’s clash against Premier League rivals Brighton and Hove Albion, the gaffer is delighted that Mickey van den Ven is demonstrating the traits that Spurs had ideally wanted to see him display, in the Lilywhite.
Ange Postecoglou told the media at Hotspur Way today:
“His speed and ability to recover is elite…”
Elite is the word.
During the 2022–23 season, Micky recorded the highest top speed of any defender in the Bundesliga that season, at 22.3 mph, which is 35.88km/h.
Micky has now picked up speed, being recorded as hitting 37.3km/h. this season. Usain Bolt’s world record run was 44 km/h.
