‘He could be the one’ – Ex-Spurs star implies this defender should get a run in the team

Tottenham Hotspur manager, Mauricio Pochettino, has had a number of problems within his side so far this season, but right-back has perhaps been his biggest headache.

The Argentine has now named five different right-backs across the first few months of the season alone, with Serge Aurier playing more than any other.

Kyle Walker-Peters started the season at right-back for the first three matches, but has only been seen once ever since, and that came in the Carabao Cup.

Davinson Sanchez and Moussa Sissoko were both asked to cover at right-back towards the start of the season, to limited effect.

Most recently, Juan Foyth has come back into the side and appeared at right-back, as he has done with Argentina in recent internationals.

The Argentine looked good against Red Star Belgrade last week and Darren Bent believes that he should be given a run in the first-team.

Bent claims that, while he is limited in an attacking sense, Foyth is good defensively (Football Insider): “Yeah potentially, potentially he could be the one.

“I think he could be the one because at the minute Spurs don’t look solid at all and they need some sort of stability in order to be a solid team that is hard to play against, as they’re not at the minute.

“Yeah we know going forward, he is a little bit limited, but he can defend so for me, I’d probably go with him for a little bit.”
