The Belgian was superb in the win over Juventus this week for Tottenham Hotspur.
Former Argentina footballer Ossie Ardiles
It has been a great week for English clubs in the Champions League. Liverpool and Manchester City thrashed their respective opponents away from home but perhaps the most impressive display came from Tottenham Hotspur against Juventus.
The Italian side are regulars in the Champions League showpiece in May and in Turin, getting an away goal can be tough.
After a disastrous start however spurs managed to score twice and take a 2-2 draw back to Wembley for the return leg.
Mousa Dembele of Tottenham in action
It was a result that impressed fans and ex-players alike, l with one man again highlighting his worth to the Tottenham side. In the weekend win over Arsenal it was Belgian midfielder Mousa Dembele that earned rave plaudits and rightly so. He did it again in Italy this weekend.
Former Tottenham player and manager Ossie Ardiles is clearly over the moon. For the second time this week the Argentine has taken to twitter to praise the flawless display of Tottenham’s Dembele:
Very happy to have witnessed the superb display of our club last night. Our supporters were great. MP tactics spot on. Players commitment, believe, attitude... Special mention to @mousadembele . Vs Arsenal and last night, simply inmense. COYS COYS COYS— osvaldo ardiles (@osvaldooardiles) February 14, 2018
The Belgian is undoubtedly enjoying one of his best runs in the Tottenham side for some time and plenty of people are finally taking notice of what Spurs fans have known for some time. Dembele is a special footballer and he is what makes Tottenham tick.
Hopefully he can put in a similar performance when the Italian juggernaut arrives at Wembley.
