According to FourFourTwo Mauricio Pochettino has said goal-shy striker Fernando Llorente is low on confidence after his new Spurs career took another wrong turn at Leicester City.
The big Spaniard had a golden chance to equalise but instead blazed wide from close range as Pochettino’s men went down to a 2-1 defeat at the King Power Stadium.
The former Athletic Bilbao star’s form at Swansea City persuaded Spurs to acquire his services during the last transfer window but he is now without a goal in 15 games since joining us.
“Yes of course, it is about building the confidence of the player and, it is true, the chance was so clear,” Pochettino told reporters afterwards.
“We feel bad because it was a chance to score for 2-2 and it was so clear,We need to accept that but everything in the last few games is against us and we need to be calm, trust and work hard for the next game.”
There is saying “third time lucky” but it hasn’t been the case with Llorente. It can’t be a coincidence that he is the third player to fail miserably. It’s a worrying pattern. So what do you make of Llorente, he was terrific for Swansea but so far hasn’t done anything of note to justify that fee.
