Paul Robinson told Sky Sports News (Wednesday, 11.19am) The fact that Eric Dier and Ben Davies are still in the Tottenham Hotspur squad is evidence of Spurs’ failure to progress since Mauricio Pochettino left the club in 2019.
Dale is still the first choice among the Spurs’ back three, while Welsh star Davies can be said to be the first choice before Clement Lenglet on the defensive left. He has even been used as a left-wing back in recent weeks.
Both players joined Tottenham during the Pochettino era. But Spurs have not progressed since the club reached the Champions League final under Pochettino – of course, because the Argentine was sacked. Dale and Davis stayed.
Asked about Pochettino’s return as Antonio Conte’s replacement, Robinson said the former Tottenham boss would look at the squad and be surprised at the lack of progress since his departure. Highlight, Dell and Davis are still with the Spurs.
“If Pochettino comes in, he’ll look around the dressing room and think Ben Davies, you’re still here. Eric Dier, you’re still here. This club has never been better since Pochettino left. didn’t develop the way they should have done,” Robinson told Sky Sports.
Robinson: Dier and Davies prove Spurs have failed to evolve
That could be harsh for Dell and Davis. Dell’s condition under Conte is basically good. Since Conte came to Tottenham, he has returned to the England national team. For Davis, he has been very consistent during his time with the Spurs.
In fact, the Welsh ace actually made more than 300 appearances for Tottenham at the weekend. However, Tottenham have failed to progress and will need to sign better options given that they are in the Champions League final. They need better defenders.
In this way, it is difficult for Davis and Dell to enter the best team in the Premier League. Such as Manchester City, Arsenal, Manchester United. They started for Tottenham, but they struggled to do that in any of the three teams.
