Star player Andreas Skov Olsen of Club Brugge “should play for Tottenham Hotspur,” as the Danish international with ties to the Premier League is a huge fish in a tiny Belgian lake.
That’s the opinion of Paul Okon, a former defender for Watford, Middlesbrough, and Leeds United who evidently knows a great deal about Ange Postecoglou despite carrying an Australian passport.
Furthermore, in his opinion, Andreas Skov Olsen is a player designed specifically for Ange-ball, supporting the Club Brugge legend as he ascends from a B-list league in Europe to the top division of European football with Tottenham Hotspur.
Skov Olsen pleaded for Tottenham to transfer
“Andreas has no business representing Club Brugge. And I don’t say that out of disrespect for Club!” Okon says of the 24-year-old, who was being considered by Rangers before deciding to move from Bologna to Brugge in 2022.
“Skov Olsen is one of the best football players in all of Europe. He ought to play for Postecoglou, the Australian manager of Tottenham. That’s the quality of Andreas.
“You need to find out why he plays in Belgium still.”
With 17 goals and five assists so far this season, it appears like Skov Olsen—who Tottenham star and Denmark teammate Pierre-Emile Hojbjerg likened to Ryan Giggs—won’t be long until he outgrows a very small pond and moves to warmer climates.
Spurs have reportedly expressed interest already. Spurs were reportedly sending scouts to watch Skov Olsen at the World Cup in Qatar, according to Het Nieuwsblad.
The London giants might still increase their interest, but with Timo Werner joining on loan from RB Leipzig for the next three months, a move is more likely to happen in the summer than in January.
Along with Radu Dragusin, a centre-half worth £26 million, Werner might make his Postecoglou debut on Sunday away against Manchester United.
Compared to Arjen Robben, Hazard, and Salah
Recently, Skov Olsen’s tendency to cut inside onto his left foot has inevitably led to comparisons with Arjen Robben and Liverpool star Mo Salah, which is understandable.
Het Nieuwsblad is told by Danish reporter Klaus Egelund, “He is a top player.”
He resembles Eden Hazard. However, you’d be better off comparing him to Mohamed Salah or Arjen Robben because he plays on the right and is left-footed.
He is a quick player who enjoys cutting inside and aiming very precisely, much like them. His greatest strength is that.
