'I lost my confidence at Tottenham Hotspur, I'm rebuilding now' - John Bostock

Former Tottenham youngster John Bostock says he is enjoying playing his football in Belgium.

John Bostock's positive start to the season in Belgium has him enjoying his football again.

The midfielder was released by Tottenham Hotspur two summers ago after six seasons at the club without ever playing for the first team. 

When he signed from Crystal Palace at just 16-years-old he was highly rated, and had even been linked to Barcelona.

Still just 22, he plays for Oud-Herevee Leuvem and is showing he still has his talent.

Bostock told SkySports: "Maybe my confidence was knocked when I was at Spurs, now I’m rebuilding, now I’m improving, I’m learning the game every week, I’m becoming a better person and player.

“If I’d stayed at Palace, who would have known what was to happen? But I believe there’s more than one way to the top."

Bostock may not have ever played for Tottenham, but he had several spells out on loan.

He spent time at Brentford, Hull, Sheffield Wednesday, Swindon, and FC Toronto. He is at his second Belgian club after a spell with Royal Antwerp previously.

The midfielder may be beginning to come good finally however - for he has six goals in 17 appearances, albeit for a team in the second division of the country.

Bostock clearly has not given up on his dream to make it back to the top, and that's commendable for the former England under-19 international. If he continues to show the form he is at present, he may begin to start climbing back up the football ladder.
