A breakthrough season for Fryers

Zeki Fryers started to get games under Tim Sherwood last season as the former Head of Player Development continued developing our youth by bringing them into the first team.

A breakthrough season for Fryers


Tottenham should see the benefits of that next season, with a bit of experience under their belts the like of Zeki Fryers, Harry Kane and Nabil Bentaleb will hopefully push on.

Zeki Fryers is certainly aiming to do that after breaking into the first team picture, as he revealed when speaking to the official site.

“I’ve been involved in some important games in Europe this season and I’ve enjoyed the experience."


He has certainly had some adapting to do considering he played at left-back in the Europa League and was then asked to play centre-back away to the Europa League runners-up Benfica, alongside Sandro a defensive midfield player. He had an excellent game that day. He turned out in the Premier League at left-back but was again also asked to play centre-half.

That sort of pressure on young shoulders can only help him i the future. He'll be able to call on those experiences next season and not be so nervous, knowing tat he has performed well when the chips were down.

“I remember getting the assist for Ade’s winning goal when we came back to beat Dnipro at home – that was a great moment. I remember I switched it to him, he took it down and slotted it past the keeper. He’s really shown what it takes this season."


That moment was a White Hart Lane when he was playing at left-back against the Juande Ramos side. He put a lovely forward cross for the rejuvenated striker.


“Then we had that tough game in Portugal with Sandro and I at the back. We obviously weren’t used to playing there together but we just got on with it and concentrated, focused and it felt like I’d played there with him for a long time.

“I think I can now take all these positives into next season and see what happens.”


With a new man as Head Coach known for developing youngsters and another Europa League campaign there should be plenty of opportunities for Fryers, last season Spurs played 54 games.

Where Pochettino sees his long term future we will have to wait and see.
