Spurs scouting Serie B starlet Parigini

Spurs Scouting Serie B Starlet Parigini

Spurs scouting Serie B starlet Parigini

I have been running through a number of the players we are scouting, it would be impossible to go through them all and here comes another one. Paul Mitchell and his scouting team are tasked with finding players who fit Mauricio Pochettino's philosophy on how he wants the game to be played.

I think most Spurs fans have now grasped the importance of the mental side of football and how technical ability, or skill as it's often referred to, simply isn't enough if we want to win things, The player must want to improve his game every day, he must want to buy into how Pochettino wants to play in order to give it his all and thus develop his game.

Totally belief drives motivation, it doesn't then have to be generated and a motivated player will outperform a nonmotivated player of the same, or even better, skill or technical ability.
We do to Italy where we are watching the development of 20-year-old (21 next March) Vittorio Parigini. Born in Moncalieri in Italy, he stands 1.80m tall, that's 5ft 11 for those of us stalwarts who prefer the imperial system. The Italian Under-21 international has been plying his trade with Perugia in Serie B this season whilst on loan from Torino.

Parigini is a right-footed wide man or central midfielder whose contract is up in the summer, although Perugia hse an option to buy him. Such has been his success this season that he has drawn the attention of Italian champions Juventus, third-placed Roma and ourselves, Tottenham Hotspur. All three of us have been watching him for some time suggest La Stampa, a paper based in Turin. There were reports in January of us watching him.

Juventus have tried to buy the highly-rated Parigini before and they want to again, this time loaning him out to Sassuolo to develop him. It is normal for a club in Italy to buy a youngster and loan him out immediately. 

Currently, Juventus have 59 players out on loan, we have 3 from the first-team, DeAndre Yedlin at Sunderland, Alex Pritchard at WBA and  andFederico Fazio at Sevilla plus 3 from the academy, Connor Ogilvie at Stevenage, Dominic Ball at Glasgow Rangers and Grant Ward at Rotherham.

Perugia are 10th in Serie B but the fact that Juventus are still trying to buy Pariginisuggests there is something about the attacking qualities that have seen him score 4 goals and have 1 assist in 18Serie B games (1,644 minutes).

His strengths include pace, acceleration, dribbling, creativity, versatility, technique and crossing while his ability to play several positions shows he has the football intelligence that fits in with the interchanging style of our front four.
