U-18 in final, Yahaya looking for another club?

The Tottenham Hotspur youngsters are taking on Maccabi Haifa (Israel) tonight in the final of the IMG Cup. Our 18 side drew 0-0 with Mexican side Toluca FC last night to top their group on goal difference and secure a final berth.

The video below is of our Under-15 side demolishing Liverpool in the final of the Lion City Cup a few months ago.

An example of the problems of dealing with youth is highlighted by 'teenage sensation' Musa Yahaya, the Nigerian who turned 18 earlier this month. He played a starring role scoring four goal and having four assists as his nation won the Under-17 World Cup in 2013.

Success can go to a players head though, they can think they have made it or that they don't have to work so hard at their game, they can think they are entitled to game time ot promotion to a higjer team without putting in the work required. Is Musa Yahaya one of thoise players?

If you son't have the right mental approach as a football loving kid you simply won't make it. he has now fallen out with his national coach and has had a poor last year with us. All the talk is of a poor attitude, poor work ethic and that he is now having to look for another club. To produce a conveyor belt of talent you are going to lose some who don't cut the mustard along the way, if they go on to perform elsewhere with a chgange of attitude so be it, you don't cry over spilt milk. The academy job is to produce professional footballers, if that is for us that is a bonus, not all will be, but we still have a duty to give as many youngsters as we can the tools neded to succeed.
