The 20-year-old made his first appearance for the Spurs and won the praise of his manager and many of his teammates

Argentinean center-back Juan Marcos Foyth started his professional career in 2017 with Estudiantes de La Plata in his native country.

But in the same year, he was transferred to Tottenham Hotspur in the English Premier League.

And yesterday, he was able to debut in the EPL in the 3-2 win over Wolverhampton Wanderers, winning the praise of many at the club.

“I am so happy with his performance, he was very good but you can be involved because we suffered a lot of attempts at our goal. That sometimes happens as a center-back,” coach Mauricio Pochettino said to the club’s official website.

“I know how he’s feeling because I was in his position 15, 20 years ago and sometimes I was involved in the same situations. He was always focused on the game and I think it was a fantastic performance.”

“I think he played fantastically. Every time he’s had the chance to show his quality, he’s done it well. He did it three days ago against West Ham and again today,” Hugo Lloris added.

“He was a bit unlucky. He’s an honest player, always tries to win challenges and a young player who will learn about those situations. People may talk about these actions but for me, he was one of the best players on the pitch.”

“He was a bit angry because but I told him ‘Juan, relax, you did an amazing’. For me, he had an amazing game,” Erik Lamela commented.

“It’s so difficult when you haven’t played for a long time and he’s played two games in three days. I’m so happy for him because he’s starting to show his quality and I told him, for me, tonight he was amazing. The penalties… sometimes the defenders are there and have to defend and he was unlucky.”
