Tottenham assistant Steffen Freund has praised winger Aaron Lennon ahead of his homecoming to Leeds United.

The midfielder has been a fans’ favourite at White Hart Lane, and with Gareth Bale on the opposite flank, the duo have been known to destroy opposing defences with their lightning-quick pace.

Lennon was sold from Leeds to the north London club for one million pounds in 2005.

Since the arrival of Andre Villas-Boas as Spurs manager, the England international has blossomed.

This season, he has managed three goals and six assists in comparison to last season’s three goals and five assists in 23 games.

But what has impressed Freund the most this season, is the total number of chances he has created, even the ones which are not finished off by his team-mates.

He told the Daily Star: “For me as a coach, it’s great to see Aaron at that level.

“We created 10 chances against (Manchester) United and he was involved in seven. That means that we have one of the best wingers in England.

“What I can say is that Aaron has always had the talent to be one of the best wingers and now he is playing well every game.

“I’m sure Aaron is happy to read about this in the paper but the most important thing is that we finish in the top four and maybe we could win some silverware again for Spurs.”
