New Tottenham Hotspur defender Kevin Wimmer named three first team players he feels he can learn from, as he spoke to the club’s official website.
Wimmer became one of Mauricio Pochettino’s first summer signings and he’s facing a real challenge to force his way into the team before the club’s opening Premier League match away at Manchester United.
It’s an example of the sort of difficult fixture that the Austrian can get used to and it’s encouraging that he’s taking it upon himself to seek extra help in terms of settling in.
“For me personally, I’m still a young player so I can learn a lot from people like Danny, Federico and Kyle,” he told tottenhamhotspur.com.
“This is very important because they are good players and they’re always very calm and focused.”
“It’s great to have a chance to play alongside them. For my personal development it’s very good to train and play every week with guys like that. It helps me a lot.”
Why Pochettino will be delighted with his comments
Pochettino will be extremely pleased with Wimmer’s comments because he’s showing a willingness and ability to be proactive in terms of how he approaches life at Tottenham.
He could have settled for the safety net with regards to the notion of a settling in period, but appears determined to have an instant impact by looking for ways he can help himself.
How will Rose, Fazio and Walker help?
The two full-backs he mentions can help because they have a very good understanding of the football club, while Fazio is an example of someone who is well suited to dealing with the physical challenge posed by Premier League football.
