Ossie Ardiles believes Giovani Lo Celso has legendary Argentine trait

Argentine football legend Ossie Ardilles has revealed that Spurs star Giovani Lo Celso possesses the same trait as him and footballing legend Diego Maradona.

As posted on the official site, Ardilles praised Lo Celso’s ability to run with the ball, ride challenges, create and use space, drive forward from deeper areas and commit opponents.

The World Cup winner terms it an ‘Argentinian trait’ – one he believes Lo Celso does justice to.

Lo Celso has improved at Tottenham

Giovani Lo Celso has come in for praise for his development at Spurs

Ardilles had only earlier in the week spoken of how he has been impressed with the 23-year-old’s progress at Tottenham. He will be intimately familiar with how to do so having represented the club with distinction from 1978 to 1988. He also went on to manage us for a solitary season in 1993-94.

“This is very Argentinian. Giovani is very strong in this department.”

He won an FA Cup and a UEFA Cup with us and was also inducted into the 1979 PFA Team of the Year. Ardilles remains the only Argentine to be included in the ‘Football League 100 legends’ list released by the FA in 1998.

A marked improvement

Lo Celso initially struggled with both form and injuries following his move from Real Betis. A run of games proved to be the difference as the Argentine adjusted well to the rigours of the English game. His evolution convinced the club to make his deal permanent in January.

Tottenham

Ossie Ardiles represented Spurs as both a player and a manager

The news of Christian Eriksen leaving was more or less pushed to the background as the joyous fans realized that the Argentine wizard is now ours.

The midfielder has two goals and one assist in 28 games. His ability to unlock defences and bring others into play that makes him crucial to Jose Mourinho’s setup.

The player has left such an impression on Mourinho that the tactician plans to build his Spurs side around him. Tanguy Ndombele was supposed to be the signing to take us to the next level. The signing of Lo Celso could, however, prove to be our best bit of business in the recent past.
