Tanguy Ndombele reckons that Tottenham Hotspur boss Mauricio Pochettino is the 'perfect' coach to take him to the next level.
And the 22-year-old offered an insight into what their money had bought with a very exciting Premier League debut last Saturday, scoring in the 3-1 win over Aston Villa.
Pochettino is one of the best coaches in world football and a number of stars have become world-class players under his guidance.
And Ndombele is hopeful that the Argentine can have the same effect on him.
He told Football London: "I really enjoyed the chat that I had with the manager before I joined. He spoke very well about what he was expecting from me and he gave me a great feeling.
"I think he is one of the best coaches around these days, the perfect one for me, just who I need to improve and progress as a player."
Bigger tests lie ahead for Ndombele, who will be in the first XI this weekend as Tottenham visit Premier League champions Manchester City.
It's a massive challenge for Pochettino's side, but if the French midfielder can dominate his opposite number(s) on that day then it'll go a long, long way to helping them return to North London with three points.
