“People around him said…” – Alasdair Gold makes interesting Lucas Bergvall claim

By Mehdi Gokal -

Tottenham Hotspur finalised the acquisition of Swedish prodigy Lucas Bergvall in January, securing the deal for around €10 million with Djurgardens IF.

The central midfielder will stay with his current club until the end of the season before joining Spurs in July.

Bergvall has been captivating fans in Stockholm, creating a buzz ahead of his move to North London.

The teenager has tallied 6 goals and 5 assists in his 18 appearances across all competitions, significantly contributing to Djurgardens’ progress to the Svenska Cupen final.

While expectations are high for Bergvall to make an impact in the Premier League next season, club correspondent Alasdair Gold suggests that the young player may face substantial challenges adapting to the English top flight.

Despite being just 18, the Sweden U21 international has displayed the maturity of a seasoned midfielder, indicating a high potential ceiling.

Speaking on the Gold and Guest Talk Tottenham Podcast, Gold expressed cautious optimism about Bergvall’s transition to England.

He mentioned that those close to the player recommend a six-month adaptation period.

The youngster’s technical skills and on-the-ball abilities are well-regarded, but the Premier League’s pace and intensity could present a significant hurdle.

Gold noted that while Bergvall’s technical prowess aligns with manager Ange Postecoglou’s style, the primary challenge will be adjusting to the fast tempo of English football.

He said:

“The people around him said to give him about six months as the adaptation period. With the ball there will be no issues whatsoever, but it will be the pace of the game, that’s the bit we don’t know how he will deal with him. Technically I think Postecoglou is going to love him.”

Despite potential initial struggles, there is confidence that Bergvall’s talent will eventually shine through, proving his worth in North London.
