Tottenham great England delighted with Wales trio Davies, Bale and Rodon

Tottenham great Mike England is excited seeing so many Wales players now part of Jose Mourinho's first team plans.

England played 397 times for Spurs between 1966-1975, won the FA Cup, League Cup and UEFA Cup, was capped 44 times by Wales and later spent eight years as Welsh national team manager, 1980-1988.

Mourinho is currently counting on Wales trio Joe Rodon, Gareth Bale and Ben Davies this season.

England told the club's website: “It takes me back to myself and Cliffy Jones, Terry Medwin and Mel Hopkins before us.

"It's a good time for Spurs. The team look good to me. They've tightened up at the back. That's key. You can score all the goals in the world, but if you are conceding, you'll still have problems.

"This team has leaders as well. We had the likes of Dave Mackay, Pat Jennings, Alan Mullery, Alan Gilzean, Jimmy Greaves, all that experience. We had one hell of a team. It's great to see the club top of the league again."
