Aston Villa legend Gabriel Agbonlahor has questioned Tottenham’s decision to push Danny Rose out on loan and let Welsh Man Ben Davies stay at the club.
It was reported that Danny had a row with Head Coach Jose Mourinho in January and was shipped out on loan to Newcastle United till the end of the campaign.
The English man has been on fire at St James’ park since the project restart, and has been exhibiting signs of returning to the popular Danny Rose.
Tottenham Chairman Daniel Levy was a desperate man when the deal was going on as he was keen to include an obligation to buy. Not that Rose is a bad player but Steve Bruce’s men were not willing to agree on such a deal so it stayed back at an option to buy.
Ben Davies is the first choice left back at Tottenham now, with him being the only senior left back available, Jose Mourinho admits that the Welshman is the only viable option for the team in that position as he owns the best attributes to play at left-back in his hybrid back three system.
The Anglo Nigerian foward opines that it ain’t lack of transfer fees that’s Spurs’ problem but it’s the inappropriate decisions they have made, an example is sending Rose out on loan.
In his interaction with talkSPORT, the ex three lions foward said: “As Spurs fans, I see your frustration, but Spurs have spent money.
“Tanguy Ndombele, it hasn’t worked, he hasn’t been good enough. We talk about Giovani Lo Celso, he’s a decent player, but is he going to get you to where Spurs want to go? Not really.
“Look at the defence against Sheffield United – Serge Aurier, Eric Dier, Davinson Sanchez, Davies, it’s just not good enough.
“For me, letting Danny Rose go and playing Davies is one of the most shocking decisions you’ll see because Danny Rose is still one of the best full-backs in the league.
“So, for me, Spurs have spent money, but they’ve not spent wisely like Man United and Liverpool have.”
