Spurs 'like a family' - Stevie Bergwijn
Wed 29 April 2020, 10:28|Tottenham Hotspur
Steven Bergwijn has spoken about the importance of family - and he's missing his Spurs family at the moment.
A new father, the flying Dutchman continues to work individually on his fitness during lockdown. Injured late in our last Premier League match at Burnley on 7 March, Stevie reports his ankle 'feels good' and that he's progressed to running in his rehabilitation.
The players have trained together remotely and it's fair to say Stevie misses that camaraderie. "Yes, of course, I'm missing the guys," he said. "I said that the first time I came to the club, I feel home. It’s like a family. We still have contact with each other and I can see the day's video, so it's okay."
Stevie has been a big hit since his arrival from PSV Eindhoven in late January. He marked that arrival with a stunning goal on his debut to help us beat Manchester City on 2 February and has continued to impress both on and off the field since then - all the more disappointing that he picked up that injury at Turf Moor.
"It was an unbelievable start for me," he reflected. "The first game, the goal against City, it was a dream for me. I feel so welcome and that’s important for me as well."
Apart from bringing up new baby son Saint Stevie Isai, what else has Stevie been up to? "Nothing too much really," he said. "I train two times a day, I’m here with my baby, I watch Netflix. I’ve just finished La Casa de Papel (Money Heist). That was good. That’s the tip from me!"
