Tottenham youngster Zenon Stylianides talks about his hopes for next season

The 18-year-old Tottenham Hotspur player has been looking ahead to the next campaign.

Tottenham Hotspur youngster Zenon Stylianides has been speaking to the club’s official website after he and his under-21 teammates suffered defeat at the hands of Manchester United on Tuesday evening.

The 3-2 victory gave United’s next generation the under-21 league title but Tottenham have plenty of exciting young players of their own with big ambitions in North London.

Stylianides has played eight times for Tottenham’s under-21s this season, rotating between central midfield and left-back, and while he provided the assist for Spurs’ second goal against United he was ultimately on the losing side.

Despite that setback the 18-year-old can take great pride in his individual campaign having made the step up in level and he is aiming to stay there next season.

“Obviously I’m looking to hopefully break through and stamp down a place in the under-21s on a regular basis,” Stylianides told “I’ve just got to keep my head down, keep working hard in training and see how it goes.”

Tottenham have so many talented teenagers coming through the ranks right now and it looks like being a very exciting few years at White Hart Lane as they all push for their first-team chance.

Obviously only a few will make it, but Stylianides certainly has the ability and the right mindsight to be among those who do.
