Oliver Skipp happy to be back in training at Hotspur Way
As a part of Step One of the Return to Training Protocol, the Premier League has enabled a return to small group training last week. The Spurs squad has been in action while maintaining social distancing, the first step back to ‘normality’ as we continue to tackle the coronavirus.
In spite of being 19, academy graduate Skipp has been a regular at our training base for years. Returning to the facility after being away for two months will have appealed to him.
“It was great to be back.”
The youngster has featured another eight times in all competitions for the club this season. He admitted that returning to the facility made him realize just how much he missed the place.
“It’s great to have that communication with the players again, and the staff, and seeing those familiar faces that I’ve known for so many years.”
Skipp is happy to get out of the house. He believes he is lucky to be where he is and that the coronavirus crisis has helped put things into perspective.
The youngster started his first games under Jose Mourinho just before pandemic struck in March. In spite of bowing out of the FA Cup, his performance against Norwich City earned rave reviews from the manager.
Skipp admits that he has had to work hard to get to where he is today. He is keen to make the most of the opportunity afforded to him.
“All I can do is keeping working hard.”
