New centre-back signing Juan Foyth revealed in his first interview with the club that he has always followed Tottenham since he was a little boy so and that the club is one that believes in youth so he wanted to come here and wanted to come to the Premier League.
The 19-year-old (20 next January) turned down PSG to come here, 21-year-old (22 next June) Colombian defender Davinson Sanchez turned down Barcelona, 32-year-old (33 next February) Spanish striker Fernando Lleorente turned down Chelsea and 24-year-old (25 in December) Ivory Coast defender Serge Aurier turned down Juventus and Manchester United, all to join Tottenham.
Foyth is excited to be here, speaks Spanish so will be able to communicate with Pochettino and his coaching staff while he leans English and of course new signing Fernando Llorente will help. He wants to make the most of this opportunity.
He said he is a laid back guy, family orientated guy who likes spending time with his friends and girlfriend, but has always had the dream of becomming a professional footballer. Moving to England and to one of the biggest clubs in the country is a bigger dream and isn't something that happens to everybody.
Foyth said his style was to bring the ball out from the back and to keep it on the floor, also that he is fast, which helps when players take him on of course. The Premier League, he said, was one-of-a-kind, one of the best leagues in the world and the UEFA Champions League one of the most important cups in the world.
This season he first of all ants to settle in London and then train hard every day to earn consideration for a place in the team.
