Gabby Agbonlahor thinks Jose Mourinho would sell Eric Dier, Davinson Sanchez, Joe Rodon and Toby Alderweireld “tomorrow” if he could.
Sky Sports pundit was critical of Tottenham’s defence, claiming even summer signing, Joe Rodon, would be on the list of the players possible to be sold by the Portuguese manager.
“Look at the defence,” Agbonlahor told the Spurs Eye View. “Do you blame him for playing defensively when he has centre-halves like he has got? Do you blame him?
“He hasn’t got Terry and Ferdinand. He’s got defenders who cannot defend, so why is he going to play 4-3-3 attacking against Manchester City, Manchester United and Chelsea? He cannot.
“Dier’s not good enough as a centre-half. Not quick enough. Sanchez has got a mistake in him even though he has the pace.
“Rodon looks alright but he’ll get found out against the big clubs. Alderweireld looks like he’s okay but he lacks the pace, so if Mourinho could sell all four of them defenders tomorrow. He would. And then bring in two rock-solid defenders.”
