The defender also says that the constant coaching from Toby Alderweireld and Federico Fazio against the MLS All-Stars was good for his development.

Tottenham summer recruit Kevin Wimmer has told the club’s official website that he feels they are moving in the right direction.

Mauricio Pochettino’s side have had a mixed pre-season, with their latest game having seem them defeated by an MLS All-Stars team last time around.

The side now take on Real Madrid in the Audi Cup in Munich on Tuesday night, another tough challenge for the side ahead of the new campaign, and while disappointed by the loss to the MLS All-Stars, Wimmer says they are definitely moving in the right direction.

“We are going in the right direction,” he told tottenhamhotspur.com.

“I think we had enough chances to win the game on Wednesday and I think we were a bit unlucky that we lost. We always try to improve and now we are very focused and looking forward to Munich and the season starting next week.”

Experienced defenders key to development 

Wimmer also says that playing alongside the club’s more experienced central defenders has proved a useful tester for him.

The youngster played the second half against the MLS All-Stars, first partnering fellow summer signing Toby Alderweireld and then Federico Fazio in the heart of the Spurs defence.

And he says it was good for his development to play alongside them, with their constant coaching throughout the game during periods of pressure from the opposition helping him enjoy a solid outing for the side.

“It’s always good for me as a young player when you look to your right or left side and there are very good players next to you,” he added.

“You know they are also very focused during the game but they always keep calm, you always can pass to them and they always try to coach you when we are under pressure.”
