Micky van de Ven reveals why he snubbed Bayern Munich and Liverpool for Tottenham transfer

Tottenham news – Micky van de Ven has proven to be a superb signing made by Ange Postecoglou and Spurs this past summer


In spite of interest from various European teams, Micky van de Ven stated there was only one specific reason why he decided to sign with Tottenham this summer. Alongside Cristian Romero, the Netherlands international has fit in well with Ange Postecoglou’s squad since making his senior debut for his nation earlier this month. The defender scored his first club goal against Luton Town just before the October international break.

With Spurs down to 10 men, van de Ven netted the winner early in the second half before helping see out a clean sheet which understandably saw him named player of the match. After the game, speaking to TNT Sport, he commented on his first goal for Spurs the brilliant conversation he had with club captain Son Heung-min prior to the game.

“Incredible match, I think we showed a great mentality as a team and I am really happy to score my first goal in

The ideal result for defenders is a clean sheet in the Premier League, for Tottenham, and according to him. “I stood back because I knew Maddison likes the cutback. He played it perfectly to my left, and I tapped it in.

“It was funny because when we were in the bus and coming to the stadium, Sonny told me ‘we’re going to make your first goal today’ and I said maybe who knows and I scored my first goal, so perfect.” While his offensive contribution was timely, it has been his defensive prowess that has many people in awe. Postecoglou’s preference for using a high line makes his rapid recovery pace an ideal weapon.

Liverpool and Bayern Munich were both interested in signing van de Ven before the Lilywhites announced the £43 million deal was finalized. However, he ultimately made the decision to leave Wolfsburg for Spurs, and his primary motivation has since been made public.

In a recent interview, he explained, “Because of the good talks with Spurs.” “I really value what the manager has to say,”At my age, playing frequently is crucial, and I felt the best with the Spurs. Along with creating an impression with his own performances, van de Ven has also helped Romero adjust to his new role as a member of the leadership team at Tottenham after talkSPORT analyst Darren Ambrose made a significant disclosure regarding the 22-year-old.

“Van de Ven has impressed me more than anyone because not only has he come in and shown how good he is – he’s quick, strong, and reads the game well,” Ambrose stated on talkSPORT. Romero appears to be a different player now that he has a teammate who is equal to him, whom he trusts, and with whom they have a solid working relationship.
