Sport Watch: Alli and Son can’t help but laugh at Tanganga’s wayward shot
"Could be a good player but.." - Exclusive: Pundit reveals big disappointment with Spurs 22 y/o
Paul Stewart reckons that Tottenham youngster Japhet Tanganga could be good enough should he cut out the mistakes. The 22-year-old was given his first-team opportunity by Jose Mourinho in January 2020, but his progress has been stalled by several different injuries over the last two seasons. Tanganga has missed 24 matches with back, shoulder and muscle problems, which has stopped him from getting a long run in the team.
Japhet Tanganga’s provided‘s bench with plenty of laughs during their 3-0 pre-season friendly victory over Colchester United.
Spurs made a brilliant start with quickfire goals from Son Heung-min and Lucas Moura before Dele Alli made it 3-0 in the 38th minute.
Tanganga, who made 13 appearances for Spurs in 2020-21, replaced Eric Dier at half-time and helped preserve their clean sheet.
The centre-back also saw a long-distance effort fly over the crossbar, much to the amusement of Son and Alli, who were sitting on the bench.
While Tanganga probably won’t be taking any free-kicks next season, he’s hoping to enjoy a run in the first team under Nuno Espírito Santo.

Nuno Espirito Santo has his first win with Spurs.After being appointed as their new manager, Nuno Espirito Santo had his first unofficial game in charge last Saturday, drawing 1-1 with League Two side Leyton Orient.
“Coming into pre-season, a new boss, it was a fresh start for everyone,” Tanganga told Spurs TV after the game. “So everyone comes in with a positive mindset that it is their opportunity to grab and they’ve got no one else to blame if they don’t put in the effort.”
