Former Arsenal midfielder, Stewart Robson has questioned if Tottenham’s squad is as strong as people thought following their defeat against Royal Antwerp and suggested that Steven Bergwijn is not good enough to play for a top Premier League side.
Spurs’ 1-0 defeat in Belgium was their first loss in eleven matches in all competitions this season.
Jose Mourinho was far from pleased with his side’s first-half display after he decided to make four changes at half-time and later brought on Harry Kane around the hour mark to try and get back into the game.
However, his changes did not have the desired effect as Spurs struggled to create openings even in the second half, with Antwerp spurning a number of chances to extend their lead.
Mourinho was extremely critical of his players after the match, insisting that some of the players had made his selection decisions easy due to their poor displays on the night (Football.London).
Reacting to the result and the Tottenham boss’ words after the game, Robson told ESPN FC: “Tonight proved maybe the squad isn’t as big as you think.
“Bergwijn I don’t think is quite good enough to play at the top level in the Premier League. Bergwijn probably knows Mourinho doesn’t really fancy him.”
Meanwhile, Don Hutchison was critical of Mourinho’s team selection and insisted that the Spurs boss did not give Antwerp the respect they deserved.
