“Miles off”: Pundit left unimpressed with 22-year-old Tottenham ace’s performance vs Newcastle

Kieron Dyer was critical of Emerson Royal after Tottenham Hotspur’s victory against Newcastle United

According to Kieron Dyer (h/t Football.London), Emerson Royal isn’t close to the standard that was set by the previous right-backs at Tottenham Hotspur.

The 22-year-old Brazilian joined the Lilywhites this past summer and is still taking some time to adapt to the conditions of the Premier League. Emerson and Spurs have both had a rocky start to life this season with new challenges and obstacles coming their way.

Nuno Espirito Santo took over the team at the start of the season and is still trying to establish the best players and system for his current squad. The Brazilian international was brought to the North London club for his alleged attacking abilities but is yet to record a goal contribution in a Spurs jersey ever since making the €25million switch from FC Barcelona.

Former Newcastle United player Kieron Dyer spoke up on Emerson and compared him to some of the previous right-backs who have played for the Lilywhites:

“Tottenham had [Kieran] Trippier and Kyle Walker as right-backs. The right-back they recruited, Royal, miles off it for me personally,”

Tottenham’s summer recruitment has been getting mixed opinions from pundits as Jamie Redknapp had gone on to praise Cristian Romero previously. The Argentina international arrived on loan from Atalanta BC with the buyout option of £46.7m for a permanent deal.

The former Spurs player spoke about the potential that the 23-year-old Argentine posses:

“I think he’s going to be a really talented defender, he’s got all the attributes, he’s aggressive, he might get sent off sometimes, he can be a bit rash but I think they’ve got a really good signing and he’ll learn from those mistakes.”

Both Romero and Royal are very young and still have a long way to go in their development. The Lilywhites themselves have been undergoing a sort of rebuild in the last couple of seasons. The South American duo could become an essential part of this Tottenham side provided they are guided and nurtured in the right direction.
