Tottenham assistant manager Cristian Stellini praised Oliver Skipp after victory over Chelsea.
Skipp struck in the 2-0 win on Sunday.
Stellini said, “Since we arrived here, Skippy surprised us in that moment. In January last season we lost Skippy for a long time, the rest of the season and when Skippy start this season he was not fit very well but he worked hard. He is a great guy who work 100 per cent every day. He needed time and the opportunity. When he had the opportunity, he showed to everyone the way and the confidence he has in himself. This confidence came from the work he does every day.
“This is an example for all the academy players that are now working with a dream to try to arrive here.
“The players who score today are important to show to everyone that if you work well, if you work hard, if you believe in the club and in yourself, you can arrive to reach this target. It is not easy but you have to improve yourself and need to look at the type of players like Skippy.”
