‘We continue’ is what Alejo Veliz wrote on his Instagram account from Tottenham Hotspur practice.
The 20-year-old earned his Tottenham debut last Saturday, albeit it may have been overlooked in the VAR and ‘offside’ goal controversy against Liverpool.
In the last seconds of the game, Ange Postecoglou introduced his summer acquisition, and he celebrated by receiving a yellow card.
Tim Vickery, an authority in South American football, provided a profile of Alejo Veliz before the midfielder joined Spurs.
It was unclear whether the powerful striker would be loaned back because he was acquired from Rosario Central in Argentina.
However, Spurs made it obvious that they intended to deploy the highly regarded forward, who can anticipate playing more minutes on the field in the upcoming months. On Wednesday, he captioned a photo of a player in training for their match against Luton Town with the phrase “We continue.”
Tottenham still unbeaten
The Tottenham-Liverpool game has received a lot of attention, and one Jurgen Klopp even called for a rerun.
Spurs supporters will likely be bored of it all and want to focus more on the fact that they are still undefeated.
The impressive thing of them isn’t just that they are unbeaten; it’s also how they have been going about it all.
Tottenham Hotspur missed out on signing Barcelona talent Ansu Fati despite him having a ‘long chat’ with Ange Postecoglou.
Ansu Fati was convinced to change his mind about joining Tottenham Hotspur by Roberto De Zerbi.
According to BBC Sport, Fati appeared to be on the verge of joining Spurs before De Zerbi stepped in.
As they believed Fati wouldn’t play a significant role under Xavi this season, Barcelona was glad to loan him out before the summer transfer deadline.
After a couple of challenging seasons, Fati needed to get back on track and decided to move to the Premier League. He had previously been tipped for fame and given Lionel Messi’s number 10 shirt at Camp Nou.
Ansu Fati had ‘long chat’ with Ange Postecoglou over Tottenham Hotspur move
Since Fati had previously displayed his talent and promise while wearing a Barcelona jersey, English clubs were naturally interested in him.
Barcelona only wanted a loan to watch Fati develop before his return to the Camp Nou; a purchase possibility wasn’t exactly on their minds.
Fati caught the attention of Tottenham Hotspur because they saw him as a versatile forward option who could play anywhere around the front line.
Fati and Spurs manager Ange Postecoglou recently had a “long chat,” according to Guillem Balague of BBC Sport.
Tottenham were thought to be the favorites to sign Fati, and Postecoglou appeared to be wooing Fati personally.
However, Brighton & Hove Albion’s manager Roberto De Zerbi was able to convince him to turn down Spurs, hijacking the move.
According to reports, Fati and De Zerbi “hit it off right from the start,” and the 20-year-old ultimately decided to reject Tottenham.
How has Fati fared at Brighton so far?
For Brighton, Fati has yet to make a start in a Premier League match, but he has played 116 minutes as a substitute in three appearances.
Last Saturday, the Spaniard netted Brighton’s lone goal in a 6-1 drubbing at Aston Villa, giving him his first Premier League goal.
In the Europa League matchup with AEK Athens, Fati played the whole 90 minutes, but she was unable to save a shocking 3-2 home loss.
When you take into account the international break and the fact that Fati has only been on the South Coast for a little over a month, it is still very early in his career with the Seagulls.
De Zerbi is likely to have faith in Fati’s ability to have a significant effect this season, perhaps in two contests against Tottenham in December and February.
