Edgar Davids has heaped praise on his former side Tottenham, saying they are impossible not to love.
Mauricio Pochettino has improved the Lilywhites since he was appointed three years ago.
They finished second in the Premier League table last season behind Chelsea, but the lack of transfer activity this summer has led to a few thinking their chances of having another brilliant campaign maybe halted.
However, former midfield ace Davids said Pochettino's side "have the culture of a top side" and he is very happy they created that.
Speaking ahead of the Spurs' clash against Newcastle on Sunday, the Dutchman said as the Mirror reported: “I’m happy Spurs have the culture of a top side, starting with the state-of-the-art training facility.
"That’s what it is. It’s unbelievable. When you go there, you want to train! You want to work! It inspires greatness. It motivates you.
“It’s no coincidence that everything is coming together and they’ve had a couple of unbelievable seasons in the Premier League.
“It’s not a one-off. Spurs are at that level and that’s why I’m so proud of the club. They have created that culture.
“I like this team a lot. When I see this team play, I see fun, I see youth and enthusiasm — football on the edge. They have fun and they are big, big talents.
"How can you not love this team?
“It’s young and fresh. I love it!”
