“A top character”: EFL manager sends message about on-loan Tottenham youngster

Norwich City boss Daniel Farke impressed by Tottenham loanee Oliver Skipp

Speaking to the Eastern Daily Press (h/t Football.london), Norwich City manager Daniel Farke has sent a message about the progression of on-loan Tottenham Hotspur midfielder Oliver Skipp.

The young Tottenham Hotspur academy ace joined the Canaries on loan for the rest of the season in the summer. And safe to say that he has been a huge hit at the club, playing a vital role in the club’s push for a promotion back to the Premier League.

Farke, while hailing the youngster’s development, has insisted that he refrains from praising him too much in order to not add pressure on Skipp.

“It’s difficult also for young players to handle that praise so I am quite careful in praising them too much but actions are more important than any words and when you look at Oliver’s season you can realise that he has played more or less every second in the league for us, for a side that has lots of competition in the squad.”

Farke also went on to add that he demands so much of Skipp that it might almost seem like he is criticising the youngster. But the Norwich boss added that the youngster’s character had left him impressed.

“It’s more like each and every day I keep on criticising him. I ask for more goals, for more assists, better passing choices, for many topics to improve – but my actions speak louder than my words. He plays each and every second for more or less each and every game for such a good side. He’s a top player and also a top character.”

It is great to see Skipp go out on loan and impress the way he has done. Had he stayed put, game-time would have been minimum under Jose Mourinho. But, by performing the way he has so far, the young midfielder has ensured that he will be in the manager’s plans come next term.
