Alejo Veliz has given an insight into his first two months as a Tottenham player as he discusses settling into life in north London and his celebration plan

Alejo Veliz has revealed that he cannot wait to play alongside Giovani Lo Celso for Tottenham. Since making the move to Tottenham Hotspur Stadium from Rosario Central at the beginning of August, the striker has formed a close bond with his fellow countryman as the midfielder has helped him settle into his new surroundings.

Initially looking like a player who would make an impact for the team further down the line rather than right now, the summer addition has come off the substitutes’ bench in Tottenham’s last two league games after making a big impression behind the scenes. Lo Celso, who has been working his way back to fitness following a quad strain, hasn’t been on the pitch at the same time as the young striker, though, having been an unused substitute at Luton Town last weekend on his return from injury.
Having come through the system of Rosario Central and also supported the team growing up, Veliz is well aware of Lo Celso as the Argentina international also progressed from Rosario’s setup to play for the first team. Speaking to SPURSPLAY as he answered a number of questions from supporters, the 20-year-old was asked about how much he is looking forward to playing with Lo Celso.
“Yes, I truly am,” he said. “Gio also comes from the club where I’m from, of which I’m also a fan. I honestly believe Gio is also very important for Argentina as a player, so yes, I’m looking forward to that moment.”

“So, well, that was a great joy because I came to another country, another language. I know I’m not alone because I know they’re there to support me.”

On how his English lessons are coming on since his switch, he added: “Honestly, it’s a little hard, but I’m getting used to it. As I said, I started my English classes. And just listening to my teammates every day, I think I’ll adapt better.”

Tottenham fans are desperate to see more of the talented striker after coming on for the closing stages of the last two league games. Impressing in front of goal for Rosario and hitting 17 goals following his senior debut, the hope is that the Argentina Under-20 international will be a regular on the scoresheet for the Lilywhites.

Once he manages to open his Spurs account, fans could well see him perform the malambo, which is a folk dance in Argentina.

“Yes, the truth is that with the Under-20 team I did a celebration that has to do with my childhood and I practiced it for a long time and it was a passion I had, apart from football,” revealed Veliz. “Hopefully I will score a goal here soon to celebrate it that way.
