Tottenham Hotspur coach Ange Postecoglou expressed his satisfaction with the recent contract extension of young talent Destiny Udogie, emphasizing the player’s commitment to the club’s future.

Udogie, who joined Spurs from Udinese last summer, inked a new long-term deal that extends his stay at North London until June 2030 (Transfermarkt).

The coach highlighted the youthful and relatively new composition of the squad, emphasizing that Udogie’s decision to commit to the club reflects his belief in Tottenham as a favourable environment for his future development. Here is what Ange told football.london :

“Really pleased with Destiny signing obviously. This is the first phase of us trying to build something and the core of the group is fairly young and new to the Premier League. Destiny committing to us is an endorsement of what he sees as a good place for his future. It’s his first year in the Premier League, he’s adapting to a new role.”

Udogie‘s journey at Tottenham has remained marked by versatility, adapting to a new role in the Premier League. Featuring primarily as a left-midfielder during his time at Udinese, Udogie has seamlessly transitioned into the left-back position at Spurs.

Destined for Greatness

This adaptability and willingness to embrace a new role also showcase the player’s versatility and commitment to contributing to the team’s success.

In the recent 4-1 victory over Newcastle, the 21-year-old Italian international not only demonstrated his defensive capabilities but also showcased his attacking prowess by scoring his first goal for Tottenham. The coach’s positive remarks regarding Udogie’s commitment and adaptability certainly underline the significance of nurturing young talents within the squad as Tottenham aim to establish a competitive and sustainable team that is capable of challenging for silverware on all possible fronts.
