Tottenham Hotspur Under-21 captain Cameron Carter-Vickers: ‘Pochettino supports us’

mc730lTottenham Under-21 captain Cameron Carter-Vickers has told NBC Sports that Mauricio Pochettino has allowed the youth players to boost their confidence at the club.

Speaking to NBC, the young USA international was speaking about his delight at being included in the USA Under-23 squad for training this week.

Carter-Vickers, who is vying for a place in the USA CONCACAF Olympic qualifying squad, says he loves leading the Under-21 squad at the North London club.

“For the first three games I have been captain, which is a great experience,” Carter-Vickers said.

“It gives me added confidence and when I go out to play I can just go out there and focus on playing. It is really good.”

Pochettino focuses strongly on implementing youth into his side, as has been shown through the rise of Harry Kane, Ryan Mason and Nabil Bentaleb. Carter-Vickers feels this boosts his chances for success.

The centre-half said: “He [Pochettino] gives youth a chance and he looks for hard work.

“So as long as you are always giving 100 percent and you’re being honest, then it will be good.”

Carter-Vickers and the Spurs Under-21 squad face Reading at the Lamex Stadium on Monday at 7PM.

    I’ve only seen him play 4 or 5 times but he’s looked head and shoulders above everyone else every game, a genuinely exciting prospect who already looks ready for a Championship loan at least. When you see the progress of John Stones at Everton it’s easy to imagine him making the first team at Spurs in a year or so, he’s already physically big enough.

    We’re starting to sound like a stuck record but he’s yet another very high quality academy product and could well be the best of a good crop right now!
