Compilation Reminds Fans Just How Great Mousa Dembele Was

Mousa Dembele left Tottenham in 2019, with injuries sadly hampering his ability to bulldoze opposition players like he did at one point.

Spurs have tried numerous combinations in the middle of the park since then, but none of the players involved have managed to quite emulate the Belgium international's all-round excellence.

Back in 2017, former manager Mauricio Pochettino described the midfielder as a, "genius", and among the best he had ever worked with. The others include Diego Maradona, Ronaldinho, Jay-Jay Okocha, and Ivan De La Pena.

He added: "We always told him, 'If we had taken you at 18 or 19 years old, you would have become one of the best players in the world.' I would have loved to have taken him on at 18."


Teammate Eric Dier is another who was impressed, saying: "He's a freak of nature. Physically, he's a monster but he's got ballerina feet."

However, sadly injuries took some of the best years from Dembele, and he is now plying his trade for Guangzhou R&F in the Chinese Super League at the age of 33.

However, Spurs fans will never forget the Belgian, with this compilation showing just how ridiculous he could be at times.


Able to use his physicality at the same time as incredible technical ability, Dembele had it all when he was 100% fit.

Here are a couple of compilations to prove that fact. What could have been if it wasn't for the injuries?
