Clement Lenglet opens up on his dream after making Tottenham debut
Speaking on SPURSPLAY’s fourth episode of extra time as quoted by Football. London, new Spurs signing Clement Lenglet who made his debut for the club opens up on his dream of winning trophies with Tottenham.
Lenglet made his debut against Rangers last night coming on to replace Davinson Sanchez 71 minutes into the game giving a glimpse of what he can offer by slotting in at the left of the back three.
The talented French centre-back left Barcelona to join Spurs on loan this summer after falling out of favour at the Catalan club. Lenglet is looking at reviving his faltering career and proving his credentials at N17.
Lenglet who joined Barcelona from Sevilla in 2019 initially had an excellent impact on the Catalan club. He was arguably the surprise package in his first two seasons at Camp Nou and impressed one and all.
However, mistakes started creeping into his game and unreliable performances meant that Lenglet slowly yet surely fell down the pecking order at Barcelona and eventually fell out of favour.
One thing that cannot be refuted is the fact that the 27-year-old has the talent to thrive at a club like Spurs, especially in a system like Antonio Conte’s where the Italian manager likes playing with three centre-backs.
Speaking about his dream with Spurs and what he wants to achieve during his time here, Lenglet said
“I’m very happy, very grateful to be here and I see all the people with a lot of energy to do something bigger than the last year and I want to help my teammates and the club to be bigger. A lot of wins and if it’s possible and I try and show it’s possible, win a trophy because we are a good team. It’s my dream”
One reason why Lenglet will thrive in an Antonio Conte team is his exceptional ability on the ball. Playing a left-sided centre-back, the Frenchman can make driving runs with the ball at his feet and also play accurate passes.
With a World cup coming up this year, Lenglet who finds himself on the periphery of the national team set-up will want to put in a solid season for Tottenham to help himself find a place on the flight to Qatar.

Lenglet is not the first player to dream of winning a trophy with Tottenham but it has not happened before for anyone. If the Frenchman can realise his dream and be instrumental to the team in the process, there is no reason why Antonio Conte will not want to make this move permanent come next season.
