Tim Sherwood tears into ‘square and backwards’ Tottenham star

Posted by

Tim Sherwood has criticised Tottenham’s signing of Rodrigo Bentancur. 

Sherwood has hinted that Bentancur isn’t the answer to Tottenham’s problems and is not very effective in possession. “What they do is buy Bentancur who gives the ball away more than he keeps it, and when he keeps it, he goes square and backwards,” Sherwood said.

Sherwood was speaking to Sky Sports when he made the claim, and he continued to criticise Spurs’ transfer policy. “Kulusevski looks okay, but a development player. We are developing for someone else,” The pundit said.

Clearly, he feels Tottenham should have explored other options in the January window as he doesn’t believe the two signings from Italy are the answer, for Spurs’ fight for the top-four.

Bentancur has played in five league games for Spurs so far, winning only two.
