Tottenham hero Anderton a big fan of Kulusevski: I love him. He's different class, isn't he?

Tottenham hero Darren Anderton admits he's a big fan of Dejan Kulusevski.

Anderton is currently visiting the UK from his new home in the States and was at Tottenham Hotspur Stadium for the 4-1 victory against Southampton on the Premier League's opening day.

“I love him. He's different class, isn't he?" said Anderton to the club's website. “I watched him closely and he's unbelievable. What a talent.

“He glides past players. He's deceptive, I suppose, in his speed, the way he drops his shoulder, he gives himself that yard of space. He doesn't beat a player three times, he's looking for an angle to get the ball into the box and Harry Kane and the forwards will love that. That's why myself and Teddy Sheringham clicked so well - he knew whenever I had the ball, I was looking for a yard to whip in a cross and he could make his runs off that. You see those similarities.

“He seems like a clever footballer as well. I think he's got everything. He's a good passer of the ball and his finishing is different class. For me, he was the best player on the pitch at the weekend, and it's not the first time that's happened. It's great we've got him, and I just hope he goes on to have a wonderful time at the Club."
