Tottenham Hotspur’s Spanish full-back Pedro Porro is adapting well to his new club, according to football journalist Alasdair Gold. Speaking on his YouTube channel, Gold said that the 23-year-old is “working incredibly hard, on and off the pitch, behind the scenes” to settle into the Premier League.
Porro joined Tottenham on loan from Sporting Lisbon in January, with an obligation to buy in the summer. After impressing against Spurs in the Champions League earlier in the season, Fabio Paratici made the move for the Spaniard.
However, Porro’s start to life in North London was not without its struggles. He had a poor debut against Leicester City in a 4-1 defeat and was left on the bench for the next game against West Ham United. He only came on as a late substitute against Chelsea.
Despite these setbacks, Porro has started the last two Premier League games for Spurs. In the absence of Emerson Royal, who is struggling with a knee injury, Porro played for 81 minutes in the 1-0 defeat to Wolves. He then produced his best performance yet against Nottingham Forest, where he provided the assist for Harry Kane’s goal in a 2-0 win.
Gold praised Porro’s progress, saying that he is getting “brighter” with each game. The journalist also revealed that the full-back is already popular among the Spurs squad.
Porro’s adaptation to life at Tottenham has not been easy, especially with Royal producing some of his best form in his 18 months at the club. Porro was left unused on the bench against Manchester City, and it is clear that he needs time to settle in.
However, his performance against Nottingham Forest has earned him a starting spot for the upcoming game against Southampton. Gold believes that even when Royal is fit, Porro will be a valuable asset to the team.
In conclusion, Pedro Porro is working hard to adapt to life at Tottenham Hotspur. Despite a difficult start, he has shown promise in recent games and is already well-liked among his new teammates. With time, he could become a key player for Spurs.
