Rodrigo Bentancur has taken to Instagram after he proved to be the catalyst to end Tottenham Hotspur’s run of two games without a victory.

Spurs welcomed Leeds United to the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium yesterday afternoon having suffered back-to-back defeats at the hands of Liverpool and Nottingham Forest in the space of the week.

When Crysencio Summerville put Leeds United ahead after 10 minutes, it looked as if it was going to be another hard day at the office for Tottenham fans to have to watch and it proved to be the case.

Rodrigo Bentancur proved to be the unlikely hero with a brace of goals in the second half to ensure Spurs remained in the top four heading into the mid-season break for the start of the World Cup when he netted in the 81st minute to make it 3-3 and scored the winner two minutes later.

It was the eighth game in a row in which Tottenham had found themselves having gone behind and they never led in the match until the Uruguayan buried the ball into the net in front of the south stand for the second time.

The midfielder wrote: “So proud of my team. Once again we showed determination and great character. Massive win”

Bentancur is the player of the season in the eyes of many Tottenham fans and is adding goals to his game at a crucial time.  It is remarkable to believe that he has scored 4 goals in 39 appearances for Spurs – as many as he scored in 247 outings for Juventus and Boca Juniors.
