Former Tottenham Hotspur boss Tim Sherwood has harshly criticised central defender Davinson Sanchez.
Sanchez played the full 90 minutes of the FA Cup semi final defeat against Manchester United, whole Toby Alderweireld sat on the bench and didn’t get on the pitch.
The 21-year-old was harshly labelled by our former player and manager as “a mistake waiting to happen”
The former Ajax defender has made 26 starts in the Premier League this season, mostly alongside Jan Vertonghen while Alderweireld has been sidelined through injury and due to his contract talks deadlock.
Many expect Alderweireld to leave in the summer, while Sanchez is the future of our defence and while he is still young, his potential to be a quality defender is there for all to see. Regardless of this, Sherwood would have started Toby ahead of the Colombian for the cup tie.
Sherwood said in BT Sport: He (Toby Alderweireld) is, without doubt, the best centre-half they have got. I think (Jan) Vertonghen has done brilliantly well. Davinson Sanchez is a mistake waiting to happen.”
