Oliver Skipp shows maturity as he opens up on current issues

According to the club’s official site, Tottenham Hotspur starlet Oliver Skipp has taken a philosophical approach to current events.

He recently admitted that he was happy to be back in training. He has now spoken about what he did during the lockdown.

Skipp admitted that the experience has been unlike anything else during his lifetime. He refuses to acknowledge it was easy going through what has been a largely surreal experience.

It has, however, given him time to reflect upon things, exploring his inner philosophical self.

“It’s given me a lot of time to reflect on everything, really.”

In spite of being helpless to do anything to change the situation, Skipp has called upon the importance of keeping oneself occupied.

“Once you initially got over the fact that we were all in lockdown, it was a case of being creative, keeping yourself occupied.”

He also showed his optimistic side by revealing that he expected everyone in the long run. The youngster brought to the fore aspects. He says a strong community spirit will showcase that there will be fewer people who will take things for granted.

The unpredictability of life has also been an eye-opener for the player. One day, he was playing his heart out in the FA Cup against Norwich and eight days later, football was suspended.

“That has been the real eye-opener for me in these difficult times, to appreciate life and the fact that no-one can predict what is going to happen tomorrow.”
