Tottenham Hotspur boss Mauricio Pochettino has opted to loan Jack Roles to Cambridge United, to get him regular game-time.
Cambridge United fans are raving about Tottenham Hotspur youngster Jack Roles after his debut last night.
Roles’s departure from Tottenham was only announced yesterday afternoon, but by the evening he was starting for Cambridge.
The U’s picked up a 3-2 victory over Scunthorpe United last night, in what was a topsy turvy game.
And Spurs fans will be delighted to see the reaction to Roles’s performance by those in attendance.
Jack Roles is going to be one hell of a player— Jono Roope (@JonoRoope22) August 20, 2019
I’m hearing good things about Roles – looks like another top signing! A good performance in the end after maybe some poor defending but the 3 points is all that matters. UP THE U’S— Josh Cornwell (@JoshCornwell9) August 20, 2019

Get in Roles looks another level! Darling, Davies & Taylor were all class too. Hannant clearance at the end— Sam Douglas (@Sam_Mallory) August 20, 2019
Roles looks like a bit of a player— Zak Bowyer (@zakbowyer02) August 20, 2019
Looks as though he may well even get some appearances for Spurs later in the season, long term replacement for Eriksen potentially if he continues to develop, certainly has a glowing reputation from what I’ve seen.— Johnooo ✌ (@thefamousFroMan) August 20, 2019
Roles has caught the eye at development squad level for Tottenham, but this is his first chance of gaining regular first-team football.
The youngster is highly regarded by Mauricio Pochettino, who will almost certainly be keeping close tabs on his progress.
Roles was on tour with Tottenham’s first-team over pre-season, and even was offered game time as Pochettino’s men won the Audi Cup.
Roles should start again for Cambridge at the weekend, when they take on Oldham Athletic.
