During the interview conducted by Tottenham’s official channel after their Newcastle United match in Australia, 23-year-old Skipp praised both fans and teammates alike. He expressed joy over playing in front of passionate Australian Spurs fans and commended an impressive first-half display delivered by his teammates at Melbourne Cricket Ground.

Building blocks for next season

Despite enduring a difficult end to this season due largely to lack of playtime, Skipp insisted there are now 'building blocks' in place ahead of Postecoglou’s second season in charge. This statement indicates his belief in the team's potential for growth and improvement, further hinting at his intention to remain part of this development.
