Tottenham player Harry Winks has opened up on his future plans of becoming a legend at White Hart Lane.
The youngster was promoted to the first team recently where he has revealed that he would very much like to end his career at the club like his hero Ledley King.
The player who would be 21 years old next month is set to play in the FA Cup against Aston Villa but he is almost sure he would be a one-club man. The midfielder has been with the club since his fifth birthday says he wants to remain at the club achieve all the successes he wants without leaving.
“I just want to play as many games as I can. Any game for Spurs is a brilliant one. I have been here since I was five so there was never any chance of me going to another club,” he said.
The player seems to still be star-struck despite his being moved to join the senior team after he impressed in the feeder team. He described the feeling as “brilliant.”
“At first it was a bit strange, like ‘wow, I am here.’
There I am training with Eriksen, Vertonghen, Dembele. As time goes on and you get more games and train with them every day it just get a bit more natural, but it’s important not to get arrogant about it. To stay level-headed,” Winks added.
He described Ledley King as his favourite Spurs player.
“Ledley King is my hero. He is an absolute legend at our club. A proper defender and one of the best England has produced for years,” he said.
On joining the first team he said the coach Mauricio Pochettino has been a massive inspiration after deciding not to send him out on loan. He lauded the manager for being “approachable” and added that the mutual admiration was the reason he celebrated with the coach at the touchline after his first goal in the Premier League on his debut against West Ham.
