Tottenham Hotspur have labelled Pape Matar Sarr as their star boy
Speaking on the Gold and Guest Talk Tottenham podcast, Alasdair Gold has claimed that inside Tottenham Hotspur, they have labelled 20-year-old midfielder Pape Matar Sarr as the star boy in the team right now.
Tottenham Hotspur have a long-standing tradition of nurturing young talents, and the emergence of Pape Matar Sarr is yet another testament to the club’s commitment to youth development.
Under the guidance of manager Ange Postecoglou, Pape Matar Sarr has enjoyed a meteoric rise in his career. Postecoglou’s faith in the young midfielder has been repaid manifold, as Sarr consistently delivers top-notch performances in every game he plays.
Outstanding across the pitch 👏

His remarkable progress has even seen him leapfrog Oliver Skipp, another promising young midfielder who started the season as a first-choice pick but has since made way for Sarr. Such has been the displays on the pitch.
One of the most exciting aspects of Sarr’s development has been his partnership with Yves Bissouma and James Maddison in midfield. Together, this trio has rapidly emerged as one of the Premier League’s most formidable midfield units.
While Sarr’s impressive performances may have occasionally gone unnoticed amidst the hustle and bustle of the football world, those within the Tottenham camp are fully aware of his potential.
In a recent episode of the Gold and Guest Talk Tottenham podcast, Gold expressed his admiration for Sarr’s contribution to the team.
“Whereas, [Ange] Postecoglou’s gone, no no, this kid’s going to be just a world-beater. Like I say, around the club they call him ‘Starboy’, that’s what the players call him because they believe he’s just going to be this phenomenal young player”
Without a doubt, Sarr’s contributions have been immense, and his future looks exceedingly bright. Yet, there are intriguing questions surrounding the team’s dynamics when Rodrigo Bentancur returns from his injury.

As Sarr’s stock continues to rise, Bentancur may find himself facing a tough battle to regain his place in the first team. This competition for midfield spots can only be a positive sign for Tottenham, as it reflects the depth and quality of their squad.
