Darren Ambrose believes Micky van de Ven is the most impressive of Tottenham’s new recruits.
Van de Ven was by no means the most high-profile of Tottenham’s summer signings, with the centre-back joining at the club as a relative unknown to Premier League fans after a successful season with Wolfsburg.
In fact, when the club was trying to recruit one of the two, many Spurs fans favoured Bayer Leverskusen’s Edmond Tapsoba above the Dutchman (Football.London).
However, the 22-year-old has hardly put a foot wrong since arriving at the club and has showcased composure and maturity that one would expect of a vastly experienced player.
Van de Ven deservedly won his first two caps for the Netherlands during the international break, coming on as a substitute against both France and Greece.
Micky Van de Ven has been a revelation at Spurs
Ambrose has stated that the former Wolfsburg man has managed to bring the best out of Cristian Romero since his arrival.
The pundit told talkSPORT: “Van de Ven has impressed me more than anyone because not only has he come in and shown how good he is – he’s quick, strong, and reads the game well.
“Romero seems a different player because he’s got a partner next to him on a level with him now, he trusts him, and they’ve got that partnership built up.”
Spurs Web Opinion
The reason for Romero’s improvement is not only because of the fact that he now has a top-class centre-back partner next to him.
It has to do with our current system as the Argentine is allowed to be aggressive in winning the ball back and has more freedom to showcase his quality in possession.
