Spurs’ ‘best’ player suggests he has no intention of leaving

Tottenham Hotspur defender Emerson Royal has dropped a hint about his future amid speculation with an exit.

The 23-year-old told Sky Sports – in a Twitter post shared by The Spurs Web – that he is “very happy” at Tottenham.

Emerson joined Spurs from Barcelona last summer and has made 39 competitive appearances for the Lilywhites.

He had a mixed first season in N17, with some flashes of quality but also disappointing performances.

Why doesn’t MLS compete with the biggest European leagues yet?

In the draw against Brentford last time out, the Brazilian delivered what football.london considered a ‘now iconic performance’, giving him 4/10.

“Pretty solid in his defensive work,” the outlet added. “But offered very little to go forward other than a ball through the box to give Kane half a chance.”

But there have also been strong performances, such as that in February’s 3-1 FA Cup win over Brighton.

Emerson forced Solly March an own goal in the first half to put Spurs 2-0 up and was brilliant throughout.

Antonio Conte loved what he saw back then, telling football.london his player had put in a “really excellent performance”.

The Tottenham boss also said: “Remember Emerson is only 23 and coming here and playing in another league is not easy.”

“Great learning curve”

Earlier this month, Emerson told Cadena Ser – via Futaa – that he was aware of Atletico Madrid’s interest in him.

The ex-Barca man has stressed he’s had a ‘good time’ at Tottenham.

However, he added: “I don’t know what will happen in the future. I like other teams watching my football.

Now, speaking to Sky Sports, Emerson has provided another update regarding his desire to stay at Tottenham.

“It’s been a great learning curve, I’ve been very happy here,” he said.

“I learned all kinds of different things. Culture, language, even food.

“So it’s been a massive development for my personal and professional life.”
