Former Tottenham Hotspur manager Tim Sherwood has some early reservations over midfielder Rogerio Bentancur.
Bentancur, 24, joined the Lilywhites last month following a £17.1m move from Juventus.
Having already featured in four matches for Antonio Conte, the 24-year-old’s latest showing came during Tottenham Hotspur’s dramatic 3-2 win against title favourites Manchester City last weekend.
Bentancur, who played alongside fellow defensive midfielder Pierre Hojbjerg, featured for the game’s entire 90-minutes and was hailed as ‘fantastic’ by Conte after the game.
However, discussing the Londoners’ recent win, Sherwood, who spoke on The Analysis Show, said: “I thought he was bang average, Bentancur.
“I didn’t think he had a good game at all. But he done a job, he worked hard, he is still getting used to the Premier League.”
