Former Tottenham Hotspur striker Peter Crouch has singled out Juan Foyth for praise following his display against Red Star Belgrade.
The Argentine made his first start of the season when he was selected by Mauricio Pochettino at right-back for the Champions League clash.
Pochettino decided to leave Serge Aurier and Kyle Walker-Peters back in London in order to give Foyth the opportunity to play on the right side of his defence.
Foyth had experienced a frustrating few months having suffered an ankle injury in the pre-season Audi Cup win at Bayern Munich.
With the Spurs boss having already played Walker-Peters, Aurier, Davinson Sanchez and Moussa Sissoko at right-back this season; Foyth has certainly staked a claim for the position based on last night’s display.
Spurs have struggled to replace Kieran Trippier who made a summer switch to Atletico Madrid. However, with Foyth also having played right-back for Argentina, he could very well be the answer to our problems.
“I thought Foyth coming in at right-back did a tremendous job,” Crouch told BT Sport 2 (6 November).
