Spurs boss Mourinho: Scarlett will see plenty of action next season
Tottenham striker Dane Scarlett will see plenty of action next season, says manager Jose Mourinho.
Mourinho has likened the teen to Manchester United striker Marcus Rashford.
“He is a diamond, a kid with incredible potential," Mourinho said. “He has worked many times with the first team and that gives him a different personality. He is still 16, 17 soon [in March] and I believe next season he will be a first-team squad player because he has a lot of talent.
“He is going to be a fantastic player and I hope everything around him goes well. He is a striker, a number nine, I have been playing him from the sides similar to Marcus Rashford and he is very clever.
“There is not one player here that I say I am not happy with, the performances were good, are they all going to start on Sunday [against Burnley]? No, but we are playing Thursday, Sunday, Thursday."
