"That’s exactly what Mourinho wants": Alasdair Gold comments on Matt Doherty's "one weakness"

Football.London journalist Alasdair Gold has outlined "one weakness" Tottenham's new right-back Matt Doherty has, following his arrival at the North London club. Doherty has joined Spurs from Wolves, signing a four-year deal with the Premier League side. He enjoyed an impressive season with the Old Gold, before making a move to Tottenham. The 28-year-old has recorded an overall rating of 6.99 from his 36 appearances, according to WhoScored. However, during the recent YouTube video, Gold has talked about "one weakness" in the defender's game. He said: “People that support Wolves have been talking to me about him, saying – ‘if there’s one weakness, perhaps he can get caught out in his defending sometimes’ – he’s more of an attacking full-back than a defensive full-back. “What I’ve said to them is – that’s exactly what [Jose] Mourinho wants. “Doherty plays, at Wolves, as a wing-back because they play a back three. “He’s going to do that at Spurs, because what happens at Spurs if you’re not aware, I’m sure you are, when Spurs are in [possession], the right-back, [Serge] Aurier for now, is right up the pitch and Ben Davies, as left-back, tucks in and it becomes a back three. “So, essentially, the right-back is kind of a wing-back in this weird Mourinho system.”
