Tottenham boss set to give 16-year-old PHENOM a run in the UEFA Cup: Is he ready for first team football?

Harry Redknapp is prepared to gamble on a young 16-year-old in tomorrow’s UEFA Cup clash against Dinamo Zagreb. Can the youngster hold his own with the big boys?

Tottenham manager Harry Redknapp is considering blooding teenage sensation John Bostock in tonight’s UEFA Cup group match at home to Dinamo Zagreb.

Bostock trained with the first team yesterday, the second time Redknapp has called him in to for practice session with the big boys, and the 16-year-old will be in the bench at White Hart Lane tonight. (Daily Mail)

Well this is a surprise! Many know Bostock as one of the up-and-coming players at Tottenham; but how many thought he’d be getting a chance this early? Whilst it remains to be seen if he’ll actually get on the pitch, he apparently has caught Redknapp’s eye enough to practice with the first team.

Do Tottenham supporters expect great things from John Bostock? Is he ready for the first team at 16 years of age?
