Tottenham boss Pochettino: Nkoudou qualities are unbelievable

Tottenham boss Mauricio Pochettino is excited with the arrival of Georges-Kevin Nkoudou.

Nkoudou joined Spurs on transfer deadline day and has committed his long-term future to the club courtesy of a five-year deal.

“GK is very young, he's a player who can improve and can surprise everyone," Pochettino told the club's official website.

"His qualities are unbelievable, he's an explosive player who can play on the left or inside with both feet and he has a very good mentality.

"He needs time because he's young and still needs to work hard.

"He hasn't had a pre-season and he's still improving his fitness, so he needs a few weeks more to be ready."
