‘Tottenham six-year deal’ 2003 FW Bellis: “It’s unbelievable…it’s a dream come true”

August 9, 2023 | by

Alejo Velis, 20, has joined Tottenham Hotspur and is determined to give his all.

“We are delighted to announce the signing of Bellis from Rosario Central. The center forward has agreed a contract with the club until 2029 and will wear the number 36 shirt,” the club announced.

“A native of Gödeken, Argentina, Bellis joined the Rosario U-20 team and made his professional debut in July 2021. He has made 62 appearances in all competitions, scoring 19 goals. He also represented Argentina at the FIFA U-20 World Cup and the U-20 South American Football Championship earlier this year, scoring three goals in nine appearances.”

The 2003-born forward is a rising talent in Argentina. He came up through the Rosario Academy and burst onto the scene last season, scoring six goals in 26 league games, and has scored 11 goals in 23 league games this season.

Bellis is a central striker who combines strength and pace, making him a classic number nine. He utilizes his 6-foot-5 frame to his advantage with his delivery, ball-keeping ability, and off-the-ball movement. However, he is right-footed and struggles to use his left foot.

For now, Bellis is expected to stay at Tottenham for the 2023-2024 season instead of leaving on loan immediately. According to Football London, “Despite Rosario’s request to extend his stay, Velis will remain at Spurs this season and try to break into Enzi Postecoglou’s squad. He will add a new striker option to the squad.”

Lionel Messi, the “God of Soccer,” has also spoken highly of Bellis’ potential. “When I watch him play, he reminds me of Luis Suarez,” the senior Argentina international said in a past interview. I’m really excited about the future of Argentina and I hope I can influence and talk to people like him.”

“When I first found out about everything and that Tottenham were interested in me, I honestly couldn’t believe it. I didn’t really understand it until I got here. And then I realized exactly what I have here. Tottenham is such a great club and I want to make the most of my opportunities and play the best I can.” 메이저놀이터

“I came here with a great desire to do well,” he said, “and I’m putting everything I have into this, and I want to do well. I’m putting everything into this and I’m 100% focused on the task at hand. It’s a dream come true to be at such a big club. I’ll do my best to seize the opportunity and hopefully everything will work out as well as I can.”

“When I had the chance to come here, I didn’t doubt it at all,” he said. “It might be a bit difficult to adapt, but I’m lucky to have Giovanni Rosselso and some of my teammates. They have already reassured me and can help me with everything I need.
