Stylianides – “I want to be the next Mousa Dembele”

Spurs youngster Zenon Stylianides has set himself the lofty ambition of emulating first team star Mousa Dembele.

Stylianides is just 18, and is a regular in the Tottenham under-23 team. This season he has featured also for the under-19s in the UEFA Youth League.

Like Dembele he is a central midfield player with skill and trickery, while his versatility is also an asset. This season for the under-23s he has also featured once at left-back, and on the wing.

He said: “His [Dembele’s] physical power. Hopefully that will come in time because it would help me so much.

“Watching him, the way he keeps the ball is brilliant and he always had it under control.

“Defensively he can run back to help out and attacking-wise he’s able to dribble past players like they’re not there. I’d like to think I can take on players like that.”
