“My time at Spurs was good,” Barrett told The South London Today. “I wish I had played more games but I still got teachings from some highly-rated managers in the game.

“And I trained with players like Luka Modric, you watch how they train, what they do off the pitch and in the gym.

“But if I was not going to play there the best thing was to come into men’s football because U21 games don’t prepare you for the Football League.”
