“These little mistakes just kept giving them hope” Pundit joins in the Sanchez bashing
By Bruce Grove -

Davinson Sanchez has been slammed for his mistake-ridden performances for Tottenham after their 2-2 draw against Newcastle United.

The Colombian has been in and out of Tottenham’s starting XI in this campaign and that is partly because he always looks like he has a mistake in him.

The former Ajax centre back can be a rock at the back on his day, but he is also one player that is one mistake away from causing problems for his team.

Former Premier League attacker, Noel Whelan, says the defender has been in poor form in recent games and says the team concedes silly goals when he is playing for them.

He adds that there is a very thin margin between keeping a clean sheet and conceding a goal and Sanchez seems to struggle to keep mistakes out of his game.

He reckons that Spurs could easily have beaten Newcastle United 2-1, but the minor mistakes from Sanchez gave the Magpies hope of a comeback.

He told Football Insider correspondent Dylan Childs: “Sanchez hasn’t looked great for a while now.

“We’re talking about fine margins and you look back on goals they concede when he’s in the side and it’s always little mistakes that cost them.

“The next goal at 2-1 up against Newcastle would have killed them off but these little mistakes just kept giving them hope.

“Jose Mourinho will have been very disappointed to have kept giving Newcastle that hope. That’s not what you need when you’re meant to be going for Europe, is it?

“He’ll be tearing his hair out when he watches the goals they conceded. Schoolboy mistakes, especially from Sanchez. Shocking stuff.”

Give him a year long loan to the Championship that will cure him.

The lad is poor and has been under both Poch and Jose. He has more mistakes in him than a dyslexic’s PhD dissertation. We paid quite a hefty sum for a lad that never improved and he had Toby and Jan to help him develop. Some team in Europe will pay £20m minimum for him. I’d take the money and run.

If we can get the same fee for Winks, Sissoko and Dier that is £80m and Dele is out of here surely, so add that in? My only issue is that Hitchen will be scouting players!

He’s a player that needs guidance on the pitch sometimes. Like under verts where he was wicked. Good athlete. Would I keep him I’m not sure. I’d rather sell died.

Stats say Davinson gave the ball away 21 times against Newcastle United. He looked nervous on the ball and his passing hasn’t improved since he joined us.

It’s well known Mourinho targeted Davinson in United’s Europa League Final against Ajax. The instruction was to let him bring the ball out as more than likely he’d give it away, which is exactly what happened.

You would think a player and coaches would work on a players weakness but it doesn’t seem to have helped Davinson.

He’s also a notorious ball watcher so unless there is a huge improvement it might be time to sell. He cost £40 million.

I can’t see anyone paying that and therein is the problem. We have developed a very bad habit of hanging on to players well past their sell by date.

His confidence is shot to pieces. He is and has been badly coached. His positional awareness is poor, heightened by his predilection for ball watching. However , he can be a good player on his day, and I suspect he knows only too well that the manager doesn’t rate him.

He came from Ajax ( where we got Vertonghen and Eriksen) and with their coaching if you can’t learn there isn’t much hope.

So what happened, he is now a shadow of what was a promising start when he came.

The Premier League is where you get found out if you’re not up to it. He’s never been an out and out regular and now we’re getting a good look at him.
