Tariq Lamptey's Post-Match Interview Proves He Is The Nicest, Most Down To Earth Guy In Football

Tariq Lamptey isn't just one of the most exciting young prospects in world football right now; he is also one of the nicest.

The 19-year-old full-back, who joined Brighton & Hove Albion from Chelsea in January, has enjoyed a phenomenal start to life in the Premier League, impressing fans and pundits alike with his dynamic and fearless style of play.

At the weekend, Lamptey - like he has done on so many occasions since arriving at The Amex - gave another dazzling display.

In the third minute of Brighton's clash against Newcastle at St James' Park, the lightning quick full-back darted infield and earned his side a penalty, using his low centre of gravity to force Allan Saint-Maximin into a silly error.

Neal Maupay, who later praised Lamptey for his efforts, converted from the spot and the Seagulls went on to dominate from that moment onwards, earning a 3-0 win over Steve Bruce's side in a convincing performance.

Brighton manager Graham Potter was also full of praise for the "special" young full-back.

"He's a special character, really humble, wants to help the team. He's a great personality. The players love him." Potter said after the full-time whistle.

"And then he has got the desire and ability to run in behind and threaten the back line. He is playing against some quite quick players on that side of the pitch and he took a couple of heavy challenges as well.

"He just plays with courage and a freshness."

Thoughts on Lamptey's performance at the weekend? He looks a real prospect, that's for sure.
