Gabby Agbonlahor urges Antonio Conte to stop playing Tottenham star Davinson Sanchez
Former Aston Villa forward Gabby Agbonlahor has urged Tottenham Hotspur head coach Antonio Conte to stop playing Davinson Sanchez.
Spurs showed character as they came back from two goals behind to secure a 3-2 win over Bournemouth at the Vitality Stadium last night.
The hosts went ahead after Kieffer Moore struck twice in the first half, but the north London club changed the game in the second half. Ryan Sessegnon scored his side’s first before Ben Davies equalised the game.

🚫 “It was very poor. I wouldn’t play Sanchez again for Tottenham.”

Rodrigo Bentancur would become the headlines after he sealed the game for his side in injury time. But while the win took all the headlines, Sanchez had a very game at the back for his side.
The Colombian international started the game with Clement Lenglet and Davies at the back. He struggled throughout the game and was also at fault for Nottingham’s second goal.
Speaking exclusively on talkSPORT, Agbonlahor has blasted the 26-year-old and has even urged Conte to never play the centre-back again.
“The other thing is Davinson Sanchez – I wouldn’t play him again. I would not play him again for Spurs. The combination of Sanchez and Emerson Royal on the right hand side is dreadful, let’s be honest. Why can’t Spurs get up for games in the first-half?”
It was surprising to see Conte opt to start the Colombian when Eric Dier was available for selection. Sanchez is down the pecking order and this was his sixth start for Spurs in the league so far.
