Tottenham Hotspur have run their first-ever, official Google+ Hangout with a member of the playing staff, and Lewis Holtby was the lucky man chosen to participate.
Fans from all over the world joined in to ask the German international questions as he took the time between preseason training sessions to interact and speak to the fans.
Holtby's intriguing blend of flawless English language tinted with a German accent—borne from growing up in Erkelenz and starting his playing career with Sparta Gerderath—makes his answers all the more interesting, and the fans show consistency in asking hard-hitting, open questions.
He touches on his personal goals for the upcoming season, how he found settling in at White Hart Lane over the past few months and dishes on the similarities between the Bundesliga and the English Premier League.
His style of play—that box-to-box, energetic strand—has translated naturally to England, and Holtby admits there's no other league he'd rather play in.
