Japhet Tanganga reveals what he is doing to work his way into Tottenham starting XI

According to Football.london, Tottenham Hotspur youngster Japhet Tanganga has revealed that he has started to take much better care of his body in order to force his way into Jose Mourinho’s lineup.

The Tottenham academy product made his first-team debut last season under Mauricio Pochettino. However, it was under Mourinho that he got regular playing time. But things changed after the lockdown hit as he succumbed to an injury.

From that point on it has been a major struggle for Tanganga to work his way back into the team as he has been hampered by new injuries along the way. As a result, the 21-year-old has been limited to making just nine appearances across all competitions this term.

Opening up on his fitness issues and his situation in the side, Tanganga declared that he has started to take much better care of his body and focusing on his fitness in order to force his way back into the manager’s plans.

“I’ve gone from making my debut in the Premier League and playing games and then suddenly lockdown comes and injuries start coming and your confidence is low.

“Your body just isn’t feeling the same way it was before you got the injuries. So it’s been tough but it’s allowed me to learn and to understand that I’ve got to look after my body much better than I was before. I’m not saying I wasn’t before but I’ve got to take it up a notch. I’ve got to be better than I was before.”

The young defender also went on to add that it was important for a footballer to keep his emotions in check and not get too high or low depending on success and failure.

The youngster also had some advice for players in his situation, where he insisted that they make the most of whatever opportunities that come their way and keep working hard with utmost dedication.

Tanganga might not have played much this term but his talent is there for all to see. Hopefully, he is able to put all his fitness woes behind for good and emerge stronger and better from the ordeal.
