Andre Villas-Boas lauded the attitude of Lewis Holtby after his stunning winner against Fulham.
Our dynamic midfielder, a half-time replacement for Etienne Capoue, was typically energetic throughout the second period as we battled to a 2-1 victory at Craven Cottage on Wednesday night.
And his efforts were rewarded when he seized possession outside the 18-yard box, found a gap in the Cottagers’ defence and let fly with a rasping shot that flew high into the net to complete our comeback after Vlad Chiriches had cancelled out Ashkan Dejagah’s opener.
It was the German international’s first Barclays Premier League goal for us – and his second of the season after he bagged a similar piledriver against Dinamo Tbilisi in the UEFA Europa League back in August.
And Head Coach Andre sung Lewis’ praises after the final whistle at Fulham.
“He leads with great spirit, always comes in with the right attitude and credit to him because he’s a super professional player,” Andre declared.
“He loves Tottenham, he loves to be here and I think that shows every time he comes on the pitch, even if he’s not starting a game.
