Talented SuperSport United youngster, Morne Nel, pulled on a Tottenham Hotspur jersey yesterday in a friendly against Ipswich Town.
The 17-year-old made the trip to Spurs last week alongside fellow youngsters, Denwin Farmer, Zama Rambuwane and Kabelo Seriba, with the quartet set to return shortly after a nine-day spell with the club’s U18 squad.
However, Nel obviously impressed during his short spell in London and was handed a starting place on Wednesday as Tottenham took on Ipswich Town in a friendly game at Spurs’ training centre.
Nel, who is a product of the Old Mutual academy in Cape Town, joined SuperSport at the end of last season and had an impressive game in the preseason friendly win over Manchester City.
The youngster came on after 13 minutes for Tottenham, playing just over 50 minutes in the 3-2 win, before being replaced in the 63rd minute by Kenny McEvoy.
