Agbonlahor gives verdict on Tottenham Hotspur star Rodrigo Bentancur’s imminent injury return

Former Aston Villa striker Gabby Agbonlahor has stated that Rodrigo Bentancur‘s potential injury return is massive news for Tottenham Hotspur.

He has been out of action since an ACL injury in February this year. In his absence, a lot has changed. Antonio Conte and Cristian Stellini have come and gone.

James Maddison has been signed, Harry Kane has left. Ange Postecoglou has come in and transformed Spurs’ fortunes by the looks of it. He will definitely be like a new signing when comes back.

Agbonlahor, reacting to claims that Bentancur could return by mid-November, told Football Insider:

“If anything it’s just a different option for Postecoglou. But I was watching this guy last season and thinking: ‘This guy has got it all’. He can play anywhere in the midfield. He can play deep, he can go further forward.

“Some of the runs he was making in behind were great – and he’s quick as well. Postecoglou has been playing Sarr in there, and I think he’ll come in for Sarr. Then you’ve got a midfield of Bissouma, Bentancur and Maddison. It’s frightening.”

Fans will expect the Uruguay international to be eased back into the team. But when he is fully fit, he should be starting for us week in, week out, because he has a lot of quality.

Bentancur isn’t a slouch in possession and is a hard worker off the ball. Before his injury for Spurs, fans would remember how he was adding a new dimension to his game where he was getting more and more involved in the attack.

Maddison seems untouchable in the team and of course, will continue starting regularly. Yves Bissouma has been a revelation under Postecoglou as well, so one can expect Bentacur to be the club’s third midfielder in the starting XI right now.

Luckily for him, Pierre-Emile Hojbjerg, his old midfield partner under Antonio Conte, doesn’t seem to be impressing the former Celtic manager too much.
