Robinson believes that Spurs man will be handed another chance to show what he can do
By Bruce Grove -

Davinson Sanchez started the season as one of Jose Mourinho’s first-choice players.

The Colombian has, however, been missing for some games now as he struggles to stake a place in the team.

When Toby Alderweireld was injured at the weekend, fans would have expected him to be called upon to replace the defender, however, that never happened and Joe Rodon was called instead.

That seems to signify that Rodon has moved ahead of Sanchez in the pecking order, but that injury also opens up the chance for him to return to the team.

Former Tottenham goalkeeper, Paul Robinson was speaking to Football Insider and he admitted that Rodon is ahead of Sanchez in the team now, but he expects the former Ajax man to be given opportunities to play for the club soon.

He said that while Rodon will likely replace Aldeweireld, the whole team will be needed during the festive period and that will open up the chance for Sanchez to feature for the club again.

“Jose Mourinho has an abundance of talent to choose from,” he told Football Insider.

“Joe Rodon is clearly ahead of Davinson Sanchez in the pecking order at the moment but Sanchez will get his chance again at some point as a result of the injury to Toby.

“It looks like Toby will be sidelined for a few weeks or a month or so.

“I think Rodon will come in but the whole squad will have to be utilised over the festive period.

“I suspect that Sanchez will be given another opportunity over the next few weeks and it will be a big chance for him.

“He has been frozen out. He has not been making the squads but this is his opportunity to show the manager that he has a future at Spurs.”

Sad news the passing of the naturally gifted Maradona.

Football legend Diego Maradona, one of the greatest players of all time, has died at the age of 60.

The former Argentina attacking midfielder and manager suffered a heart attack at his Buenos Aires home.

He had successful surgery on a brain blood clot earlier in November and was to be treated for alcohol dependency.

Maradona was captain when Argentina won the 1986 World Cup, scoring the famous ‘Hand of God’ goal against England in the quarter-finals.

In a statement on social media, the Argentine Football Association expressed “its deepest sorrow for the death of our legend”, adding: “You will always be in our hearts.”

Maradona played for Barcelona and Napoli during his club career, winning two Serie A titles with the Italian side.

He scored 34 goals in 91 appearances for Argentina, representing them in four World Cups.

Special talents don’t come around very often but when they do such as a George Best and Lionel Messi you sit back in admiration!

Long live football and life’s true mavericks and eccentrics, just a shame this one didn’t live longer.

RIP Diego Maradona.

Wherever you go in Naples, in every establishment, there’s something there acknowledging Diego Maradona. In the 80’s there was quite a rivalry between southern and northern Italy, and he chose Naples. He found it was the city that really suited him because he came from a background of abject poverty. Naples felt downtrodden in the 80’s and he came along, to a football-mad city, and similarly hauled the team to the greatest spell of footballing success that Napoli has ever had.

Yes, I doubt you’d see that now. He was a principals bloke and also a cheat. A complex genius with a football…

Only in the ropey please. Too keen on lashing out at crosses facing his own goal, as big a danger to Lloris as the opposition!
