Hudson: Bobby will get better

Posted on 22 August 2003  - 12:00

Tottenham Hotspur (Spurs) Football Club is located in North London. The club is also known as Spurs. Tottenham's home ground is White Hart Lane. The club motto is Audere est Facere (To dare is to do).

DC United boss Ray Hudson is convinced Bobby Convey will develop further under the guidance of Glenn Hoddle and our coaches at Spurs.

We've agreed terms with the young star of USA soccer and the deal is now subject to a work permit application.

Hudson has seen Convey's rise from being the youngest player drafted into Major League Soccer in 2000 to the third youngest cap in American history - he now has 18 at the age of 20.

Hudson said: "He's still got work to do in terms of being the complete player but we have to remember he’s a young developing player.

"The likes of Glenn Hoddle, John Gorman and Colin Calderwood are perfect types of people as well as coaches to keep that flame burning and develop it into a real fire in terms of his ability.

"It's all there with Convey. He's got tremendous range and I think with the international quality that is going to be around him at Tottenham Hotspur, it is just going to fuel that fire.

"I hope everyone on both sides of the pond allow him time to bear down. He's going to a different planet and an entirely different environment and the expectations on the young lad are high.

"But he's the type that won't wilt under that spotlight. He’s waited for that spotlight for a long time. The timing is right and the opportunity is too much of a temptation for any young lad to pass up."
