Kevin Wimmer pleased with his form during first season with Tottenham

Tottenham WHL

The Austrian was part of the side that came close to lifting the Premier League title.

Kevin Wimmer has told Tottenham Hotspur's official website that he has been pleased with his own form during his first season at White Hart Lane.

The 23-year-old arrived last summer, and has gone on to help Spurs establish themselves as genuine title contenders in the Premier League. And the Austrian explained that the welcome that he received upon his arrival was a key reason why he was able to adapt to life in England so quickly, before discussing his opinion of how his own season went.

"When I arrived here last summer I felt very good and very comfortable. I was welcomed by everybody, by the players and the staff as well. I felt very good from the beginning and I think we have done very well this season. I've enjoyed it a lot here and I'm already looking forward to next year," he told the club's official website.

Despite having just one campaign of top flight experience under his belt before his move to North London, Mauricio Pochettino demonstrated a huge amount of faith in Wimmer as the youngster was one of just three natural centre-backs within the club's squad heading into the campaign. 

Nevertheless, the defender has been able to maintain a level of consistency even though his opportunities have come when either Toby Alderweireld or Jan Vertonghen have been unavailable, and thus, he has been unable to build the kind of momentum that would come from playing week-in week-out. 

But with Wimmer displaying a huge amount of ability to be able to cope with his situation - and still keep the joint-best defensive record in the division - Pochettino can go into the summer knowing that the centre of defence is not an area that needs improving for the side to reach that next level.
