Tottenham Hotspur youngster Milos Veljkovic has already had a summer to remember, after his Serbia side won the Under-20 World Cup with a 2-1 victory in the final against Brazil in the early hours of Saturday morning.
Veljkovic has been an ever-present for Serbia’s young side in the competition and he proved vital again as he helped restrict Brazil to a single goal, scored by Manchester United’s Andreas Pereira.
The 19-year-old can play as either a centre-back or a defensive midfielder and his versatility means he could ultimately become a vital player for Tottenham.
Last season he spent loan spells at Championship sides Middlesbrough and Charlton Athletic but injury robbed him of the chance to play as many matches as he would have hoped.
However, following his latest success there could well be a number of clubs desperate to give him game-time next season, and it will be up to Tottenham manager Mauricio Pochettino to decide how best to continue his fledgling career.
After Serbia’s latest triumph we took to Twitter to see what Tottenham fans thought of Veljkovic’s performance and you can read a selection of what we found below:
#thfc What a superb end to a dismal season for Milos Veljkovic. Ignored at Middlesborough, injured at Charlton but now a world champion!— The Tottenham Way (@TheTottenhamWay) June 20, 2015
Veljkovic > Wilshere— Damien Wiese (@DWiese11) June 20, 2015
Delighted for Veljkovic who is an u-20 champion. Serbia have been consistent throughout & he's done well. Hope to see him play for us soon— SHДRKY (@Belgian_Hotspur) June 20, 2015
A solid defensive display from Veljkovic as Serbia beat Brazil 2-1....congratulations for Veljkovic and Serbia......!— parthi (@banspurs) June 20, 2015
Carter-Vickers and Veljkovic were the 2 defensive stars of the U20's World Cup. This Spurs youth production line is getting ridiculous...— JonnyTottenham (@JonnyTottenham) June 20, 2015
