Tottenham Hotspur defender Ben Davies has described Spurs teammate Davinson Sanchez as “one of the strongest people” he’s ever met.
The 24-year-old joined Tottenham in 2017 from Ajax in a then club-record £42million deal.
Sanchez has made 134 competitive appearances to date for Spurs, but has found himself on the fringes of the first team this term.
The Colombia international has 17 appearances under his belt in 2020-21, and has missed out on nine Premier League matchday squads this season.
Despite Sanchez’s lack of game time and some criticism from sections of the fanbase, Davies had some very kind words to say about his colleague.
“One of the strongest people I’ve ever met,” the Welshman is quoted by football.london as saying.
“He’s quick, strong and such a good guy. He’s so funny and his English has got so much better since he’s arrived and he’s one of the big characters in the team.”
Even though Sanchez has managed to get more minutes under his belt since Christmas, his performances against Wolves and Fulham weren’t especially great, it has to be said.
While it’s great to hear Davies talk highly about his teammate, it remains to be seen how much more game time Jose Mourinho is willing to give the centre-back going forward.
