He they flew out to Hong Kong to meet up with Spurs at the Barclays Asia Cup. He was ineligible for the competition as he had not been registered in time but was involved in training plus the promotional and community work the club has been undertaking as part of the tour.
Comments made by the FC Twente coach heap high praise on Chadli and suggest that Spurs have made an excellent acquisition. Quoted by @Addicted to Spurs on Twitter, the coach said,
“I don’t know what he cannot do. Nacer is creative, strong, fast, great free kick. Everything is beautiful, even his face.”
The winger’s stats for last season are equally impressive as can be seen from this tweet.
In all comps last season, Chadli scored 18 goals and made 12 assists, with 10 goals in the Eredivisie along with five of the assists. #THFC
