If reports in the press are to be believed, there is likely to be a lot of player turnover at Tottenham this summer after two transfer windows of complete inactivity (Daily Mail).
Apart from the players deemed to be surplus to requirements, the likes of Toby Alderweireld and Christian Eriksen have also been linked with moves away from the club ( Calciomercato and El Chiringuito).
However, one person who is not going anywhere this summer is defender Davinson Sanchez, who has claimed that he is extremely happy with how things are going at Tottenham.
The Colombian who moved from Ajax in summer of 2017, has settled in very quickly in North London and put in some terrific displays. The 22-year-old has impressed a lot of people with the maturity he has displayed at such a young age.
When asked if he was happy with the Lilywhites, Sanchez told Irish Mirror, “There are many things around me here in Tottenham that are keeping me happy – the rest of the guys, the kit man, everything.
“When you are somewhere you think you might be happy, you cling onto it. People outside the game and outside the club can do nothing about it.
“In South America, I watched a lot of Premier League football and it was always the best league. The team is improving and there are many things happening in Tottenham.
“It is difficult when there are a lot of things happening,” he said. “But there is a feeling about this team. We never give up and we know a lot can happen in football. You have to do everything to make the thing that you want happens.”
Although he started most games last season, he has had to be content with a place on the bench for several big games this season as Pochettino has opted to go with a partnership of Jan Vertonghen and Toby Alderweireld in a back 4.
However, Sanchez revealed that he will be ready when called upon and has analyzed the video of Liverpool’s infamous front 3 of Salah, Mane, and Firmino.
He added, “You know what you want to happen from the start. In the heat of competition, they might do something different. But if you can get close in your mind to what you think they are going to do, it becomes less of a guess.”
Spurs Web Opinion
As much as Sanchez’s pace could be an asset against Liverpool’s front three, we believe that he unfortunately has to miss out on a starting spot as Pochettino will be better off going with a back 4 so that Spurs could have an extra body in midfield.
However, if Spurs do wish to see out a lead late in the game, then the 22-year-old is certainly a great option to have on the bench.
