'I wouldn't play him again': Gabby Agbonlahor says Tottenham have got to stop playing Davinson Sanchez
Tottenham fought back from 2-0 down at Bournemouth today as Antonio Conte saw his side pick up a massive three points.
It looked to be heading towards another nightmare display. Kieffer Moore had scored twice to give Bournemouth a two goal lead. However, Spurs rallied from somewhere and a Ryan Sessegnon goal kick-started the comeback. From there, Ben Davies and then late on, Rodrigo Bentancur, scored to make it 3-2.
However, while the fightback was a good one overall, TalkSPORT’s Gabby Agbonlahor feels that Spurs simply have to stop playing Davinson Sanchez.
“One other thing. Sanchez, I wouldn’t play him again. I would not play him again for Spurs,” Agbonlahor said on TalkSPORT.
Interestingly, Agbonlahor’s comments come just days after his TalkSPORT pal and former Spurs man Jamie O’Hara slammed Sanchez as well. O’Hara believes Sanchez isn’t good enough, and has been a wasted signing.
“I don’t know what Sanchez is playing at. I mean, how we paid £45m for him I’ll never know, he’s just an accident waiting to happen,” O’Hara said at the time.
Certainly, on today’s performance, it looks like those comments might be being proven right.
TBR’s View: Tottenham need better than Davinson Sanchez
The Colombian has had chance after chance now and it looks like he just isn’t getting much better.
Sadly, the comments from Agbonlahor and O’Hara do seem to ring true. Sanchez seems to just have mistakes in him and despite changes in manager, he can’t iron them out.
For now, Tottenham simply need to get Cuti Romero back in. They are a far more solid unit when he is involved anyway.
From there, the club needs to look at replacing Sanchez with higher quality. Only then will Spurs push for honours and have the squad depth Conte so clearly craves in this Spurs squad.
