Report: Antonio Conte has lost all confidence in £42m Tottenham player
Tottenham Hotspur boss Antonio Conte has reportedly ‘lost all confidence’ in Davinson Sanchez.
Tottenham signed Sanchez from Ajax in 2017 for a reported £42million, then a club record for Spurs.
However, he has struggled to replicate the form he showed in the Netherlands.
This season, Conte has given Sanchez just six Premier League starts.
Marca have touched upon this as they looked at his present and future at Tottenham.
They claim that the 26-year-old’s performances have ‘always been highly contentious’ since his arrival at Spurs.
Marca say Sanchez’s involvement has been in decline, with other players winning over Conte instead.
Now, his chances of playing time in future, particularly as a starter, are ‘remote’.
Conte has ‘lost all confidence in him’, added Marca.
They say his ‘lack of forcefulness, poor control of the ball and lack of pace’ in some areas are all major weak points.
This means Conte will keep Sanchez on the bench in future unless there are injuries to others.

Sanchez has had plenty of chances at Tottenham, but sadly he has failed to establish himself as a trusted regular.
He seems to just have mistakes in him and despite changes in manager, he can’t iron them out.
With this in mind, Conte should – and probably will – look to alternatives in the January window.
Sanchez could also do with a fresh start, going somewhere he can be a regular and get himself back on track.
