Steven Bergwijn opens up on leaving PSV for Tottenham Hotspur

According to Dutch publication De Telegraaf (h/t Football.london), Tottenham Hotspur star Steven Bergwijn has opened up on his move to North London in January.

The 22-year-old started his Spurs career with a bang. Facing off against defending champions Manchester City, the Dutchman put his side ahead with an unstoppable volley past Ederson.

“For me, that transfer was just the right step at that moment. We were in a dip with PSV, stood at a great distance and the trainer (Mark van Bommel) was fired”

He added directness to the Spurs team that had been lacking since the injury to Harry Kane. His trademark runs, tricks and indomitable spirit added a lot to the team in the coming weeks.

“I’ve seen that goal again and again. It still gives me goosebumps.”

He scored his second goal for the club against Wolverhampton Wanderers in March before going off injured in the next game.

The responsibility of leading the attack was given to Bergwijn and Lucas Moura following the injury to Son Heung-Min. It is to be said that the Dutch international did his best given his unfamiliarity with the league at that point in time.

In fact, he has played such a prominent role since joining the club that there have been suggestions in Holland that he has been overused and overworked.

He has dismissed the allegations and revealed that his injury had nothing to with being played too much. Bergwijn is keen to secure Champions League football for the club. With 9 games to go, Spurs sit 8th in the table.
