Yeovil Town's on loan central defender Steven Caulker has been praised for his attitude by his management team, ahead of this weekend's trip to Leeds United. However, assistant manager Nathan Jones has said that it is important that the Tottenham Hotspur player keeps his feet on the ground and that people don't lose sight of the fact that he is still only 17 years old.
The Spurs Academy player has made 14 starts so far this season, and his defensive partner Terrell Forbes heaped praise upon him last weekend calling him 'a monster' in the way that he dominated the back line. Nathan agreed that the defender had played well since arriving at Huish Park but was keen to keep expectations in line:
"We saw something in Steven that we liked a long time ago and we were able to get him for this season. He has progressed nicely but I don't want to put too much pressure on him or give him too many accolades yet, because he is a very level-headed guy and we would like to keep him that way. But he's come in, he's settled in and he has bought into what we are trying to do here. He was ready-made in terms of his attitude. He's settled in and I'm sure he's loved by the fans and even more so by the people inside the club and we just hope he continues to progress at this rate and I'm sure he'll be a fine player."
