Onomah comments augurs well for the future

Onomah comments augurs well for the future

The comments from Josh Onomah to FourFourTwo may sound standard but they have an underlying message about individuals taking responsibility for themselves, about having the winning mentality that drives a player each day in training to be the best they can be.

“Harry came through the academy and I used to play with him a few times in the reserves and to see him achieve these great things just shows anything is possible,” Onomah told FourFourTwo. 
“Same with Dele, he was playing League One two seasons ago and the season he had last time was unbelievable. It just shows if you work hard, put your mind to it anything can happen.”

Football is about taking chances, both a striker when an opportunity arises and a player when he is given minutes on the pitch. Those minutes only arrive if you show the manager in training that you deserve a place, if he are not putting everything into training then you don't deserve to be picked. Clinton Njie is the latest not to have shown Pochettino enough, along with Alex Pritchard.

Josh Onomah on the other hand, has shown there is talent there to work with. We'll be seeing more minutes from him this season after catching the eye in Australia. He was taking on and beating internationals and Champions League regulars.

He isn't the finished article of course, there is still plenty to learn and there will be mistakes along the way, but the path has been set by Harry Kane and Dele Alli for the youngsters. Josh wants a part of that but understands you have to work for it, you don't just get given it. That auuers well for the future, for his future.
