"So I am very happy. It is clear that he was careful because like all creative players, he was afraid of a bad field and maybe a careless start. But I am very happy because of his very professional approach and good performance.
It will not be a surprise if he plays on Wednesday," said Jose. Mourinho.
Alfie Devine became the youngest senior and the youngest scorer in the history of Tottenham. "He has good potential. He was lucky that he prepared with us because we lacked a player, so he played a couple of friendly matches.
That brought him closer to the first team." "He is not a stranger to us, he also worked in the academy, where he played for many teams. He trains with us from time to time and all that is a very nice process for him.

"I am glad for him. For a player who does not play often because there is a great player in front of him, every opportunity to play is important and we are very happy that he is with us," Mourinho said.
