My dream right-back trio for Tottenham next season

Tottenham Hotspur struggled at right-back last season and I believe that changes need to be made if Pochettino is to strengthen the position this summer.

In my opinion, Serge Aurier is and always has been the weakest right-back at the club. While his pace and physicality dig him out of some holes, he simply doesn’t have a footballing brain.

I appreciate that Kieran Trippier had an awful season in a Lilywhite shirt, but I also believe that he has shown enough talent and loyalty in the past to warrant a second chance.

The England man was used as a scapegoat last season when things weren’t going Tottenham’s way, and that wasn’t fair. We should learn from what happened with Moussa Sissoko on that front.

I also believe that Kyle Walker-Peters was not given anywhere near enough of a chance at right-back, especially when the previous two were out of form.

The academy graduate has promise, but he isn’t a youngster anymore and he simply has to be given some minute on the pitch.

As a result, I would be all for selling Serge Aurier, which was rumoured in a Daily Mail article. I would then have Kieran Trippier and Kyle Walker-Peters remain at the club for another year.

On top of this, I would want Spurs to sign free transfer Dani Alves on a one-year deal to provide some extra big-game experience.

The Brazilian legend has been linked with a move to Spurs this summer (Sun). In my opinion, we would have the youth and pace of Walker-Peters, the crossing and wing-back ability of Trippier, and the wisdom and experience of Alves to utilise.

Have something to tell us about this article?

  1. Sorry mate. I will comment on this every time. Tripps is done at the level we want to be at. If he is happy being second choice again than fine, he can play against the clubs under the top 6 MAYBE he can still cope. Aurier needs guidance to still be great and he has age on his side. In conclusion i have to disagree wholeheartedly.
