The Tottenham midfielder Scott Parker has said that he thinks that the winger Aaron Lennon is one of the main reasons for Tottenham being extremely good in recent weeks. The England winger has always been viewed as the secondary choice to the star winger Gareth Bale. However, the Tottenham manager Andre Villas-Boas has been able to get the best out of the 25-year-old in recent weeks in such a way that he has overshadowed Bale. Parker has also come out and glowing praise of the midfielder by saying that his form has been one of the main reasons for Tottenham doing well in recent weeks.
Lennon was at his imperious best in the 3-1 win over Reading. This victory helped his team move into the third position ahead of Chelsea and Arsenal. Parker has praised Lennon by saying that he has been almost unplayable in the last few weeks. The 31-year-old recently returned to first team action after many months out with an injury. He was given linked with a move to the West London club QPR after they were recently taken over by Harry Redknapp, who was responsible for bringing him to Tottenham. Lennon has always been praised for his incredible pace, but he has combined that with an end product.
“He was at a different level against Reading – not just his raw pace and his threat on and around the ball but his work rate was something very special. I couldn’t think of anything worse if I was a full-back than him running at me. He probably could have set up another couple if it had fallen for the right people. Gareth is fantastic and sometimes gets all the headlines but ‘Azzer’ [Lennon] has been key to that as well,” said Parker. Tottenham have managed to go on an unbeaten run since the Everton defeat.
