TNT pundit calls Spurs target a ‘special player’

By Mehdi Gokal -

Owen Hargreaves has lavished praise on young sensation Mathys Tel for his crucial goal that helped Bayern Munich secure a thrilling 4-3 victory over Manchester United.

The 18-year-old Frenchman, who came on as a substitute for Kane, showcased his talents with a brilliant goal that ultimately sealed the win for Bayern.

The Frenchman made a smart run in behind the United defence and was picked out brilliantly by Joshua Kimmich with a pin point cross.

Tel expertly controlled the ball before emphatically smashing it past Andre Onana, leaving no chance for the goalkeeper.

Hargreaves, speaking on TNT Sports after the game, hailed Tel as a special player, highlighting that it was his third goal of the season at just 18 years old.

He also mentioned that Bayern had invested significantly in the young talent, and while he didn’t play much last season, Tel has emerged as a key contributor this season.

He said:

“He’s another special player, Fletch.”

“That’s his third goal this season, 18 years old.

“I know they paid a lot of money for him, but he didn’t play a lot last season. What a take and what a finish.”

Spurs were reportedly interested in signing the Bayern Munich man during the summer but reports stated that Tuchel wanted to keep hold of him.

Bayern snapped up Tel for a fee worth £25 million last summer as the youngster made the switch from Ligue 1 outfit Rennes.

So far this season he has scored 2 goals and assisted 1 in 4 games in the Bundesliga and one in the Champions League.

Whether a move to Spurs in the future materialises remains to be seen. But for now, he seems to be very much in Tuchel’s plans.
