Toby Alderweireld has described himself as ’10 out of 10′ happy at the moment and is ploughing all of that happiness into his football.
Alderweireld was one of the more talked about names this summer, as he was strongly linked with a move to Manchester United as Jose Mourinho desperately tried to add a centre-back to his ranks.
Speculation about his future had been fueled by a reported falling out between the Belgian and his Spurs manager Mauricio Pochettino who left the 29-year-old out of a number of his squad’s due to a supposed injury, an injury which was disputed by the player and his manager at international level, Roberto Martinez.
A move to Old Trafford didn’t materialise, with reports saying United and Spurs were unable to agree on a fee, but following the birth of his daughter last month, Alderweireld has said that he is totally happy with his life right now.
“I’m the old Toby again. I try to do my best and help the team,” Alderweireld told Sky Sports News.
“How happy am I on a scale of one to 10? When you have a daughter it’s 10 out of 10. It doesn’t matter what happens. The joy that I get from that, I try to give it to my football.”
Alderweireld is seemingly back in Pochettino’s good books too, starting seven out of Spurs eight Premier League games so far this season.
