Understandable stance

Rodon reportedly preferring Tottenham to West Ham and Burnley is understandable.

Spurs have a world-class manager in Jose Mourinho, who is a serial winner and has worked with some of the best players in the world.

Under the Portuguese, the 22-year-old would improve and develop as a defender, and he would also add facets to his game.

Moreover, the youngster would be joining a team who are challenging for the Premier League top four and are also playing in the Europa League.
