Tottenham winger Dejan Kulusevski says he need to shoot more with his right foot

Tottenham star Dejan Kulusevski’s recent revelation sheds light on an intriguing aspect of his playing style—his right foot. Typically operating as a right-winger, the focus naturally gravitates towards the left foot for most players.

However, Kulusevski’s acknowledgement of his right foot’s underappreciation adds an interesting layer, particularly in light of his recent standout performance in the #10 role during the 2-0 victory against Nottingham Forest.

Like it or not, right-footed players are better with their weak foot than left-footed ones. At least most of them. The Swede, primarily deployed on the right wing, showcased his adaptability by excelling as a #10 against Forest. Notably, Kulusevski utilized his right foot to score, contradicting the expectation of a more left-footed approach from a winger. This not only underscored his proficiency with both feet but also hinted at an unexplored facet of his skill set.

Deki believes his right foot is underrated by himself, and admitted that he needs to explore the opportunities to score more with his weaker foot. Here is what he told Sky Sports via BBC:

“I like my right foot, it is too underrated by me. I have to keep shooting with my right foot.”

Kulusevski’s self-awareness regarding the undervaluation of his right foot indicates a player committed to refining every aspect of his game. As he continues to adjust to different positions under the management of Ange Postecoglou, the recognition of his right foot’s potential emerges as a promising asset for Tottenham’s attacking dynamics.

In football, unpredictability is paramount, and possessing a strong right foot alongside the more conventional left can enhance a player’s effectiveness in diverse situations.

Well, let’s get real. As long as he continues to score and assist, Tottenham fans cannot care less whether or not it is from his left or right foot. All we want is the player to excel with the club, albeit with him scoring from his kneecap.
