The Argentine is a big fan of the Belgian's recent performances.
Tottenham Hotspur took on Southampton yesterday in a game which of course saw Mauricio Pochettino travel to his former club.
In the end it was a small burst of action and poor defending from Southampton that bagged Tottenham all three points.
Harry Kane was allowed in far too easily to score the opener before Dele Alli tapped in the second.
But there was no doubt which player stood out above the rest, Belgian midfielder Mousa Dembele.
He has had his downs at White Hart Lane but right now he is on the up and Tottenham are reaping the benefits of his excellent performances.
The midfielder is showing more steel to his game and going forward he is as enigmatic as always.

His performances are surely giving the likes of Nabil Bentaleb and Ryan Mason the jitters as if he Eric Dier and Dele Alli keep performing the way they are - then they are not likely to be getting a game anytime soon.
