Ossie Ardiles has singled out Toby Alderweireld for special praise following his sparkling form for Tottenham this season.

The centre-half has been a regular fixture in the north London side’s first team this season and has made 30 top-flight appearances for the Lilywhites to help them up to second place in the Premier League table.

The Belgium international has also chipped in with three goals and two assists as he has established himself as one of Tottenham’s key players this term.

And former Spurs star Ardiles believes that the 27-year-old defender does not get the credit he deserves for his brilliant performances for the north London club this season.

Speaking to the Daily Mail, Ardiles said: “Toby is one of the best in the world! In the Premier League, no doubt about it.

“In the world you’re talking about Sergio Ramos, Gerard Pique, who else? He has been the big difference.

“Last season we were conceding a lot of goals, Lloris was our best player, nearly every game. This season the difference at the back is huge.”
