Tottenham defender Japhet Tanganga still doesn't have locker!

Tottenham defender Japhet Tanganga's emergence is so sudden he still doesn't have his own locker!

The defender followed up his outstanding Premier League debut in the defeat to Liverpool on Saturday with another impressive display in Tuesday's FA Cup win over Middlesbrough.

Asked if the locker room story was true, he said: “I don't know if I can say that. That's for you to find out from someone else."

The Hackney-born hot prospect added: “My job is to just keep working with the first team and the manager wants to do what he wants to do.

"It's up to him. At the moment my focus is to keep working, keep getting opportunities to play and try to establish myself in the team.

“Hopefully, the manager will keep encouraging me and keep working with me to allow me to do that."
