Tottenham Hotspur supporters have another young talent to get excited about.
The 18-year-old central midfielder has a way to go before he is knocking on Spurs manager Mauricio Pochettino’s door, having only featured three times for the club’s under-21s to date, but he looked very good as part of a Tottenham XI at the weekend.
His performance earned plaudits from Tottenham coach Ugo Ehiogu, who hailed Goddard as “fantastic” on the day, and with more pre-season matches still to play the talented teenager could cement his place as one to watch in the under-21s next season.
Shayon Harrison and Ismail Azzaoui scored Tottenham’s goals in a 3-2 defeat and despite the setback Goddard is clearly taking positives from the match.
Speaking to tottenhamhotspur.com, Cy said, “I tried to look like I wasn’t fazed so right from the first whistle, I tried to get at them, play forward early and not get intimidated.
“I’m just trying to perform at the best of my ability to get a good basis for the season and try to build my way up.”
The Japanese youth international is clearly heading in the right direction and becomes the latest in an increasingly long line of young players that Tottenham fans will be keeping tabs on in the coming months.
