Tottenham Hotspur boss Jose Mourinho is delighted with Steven Bergwijn but admitted he wasn’t his top target in January.

Tottenham signed the Dutch international from PSV Eindhoven in January, and the winger has since scored three times in six games. He scored the opener in last week’s 1-1 draw with Manchester United.

Mourinho said to his press conference on Monday, “Compliments to the club for getting him. He wasn’t my first choice, I’m always very honest about that, but it turned out to be a great decision. ”

“Steven is a player with a bright future ahead of him. He can handle the right and left. We are very happy with him: not only because of his age but also because of his professional attitude. The way he trains, the way he lives … he’s a boy who can only get better. “
