Davinson Sanchez is this season again proving to be an important player for Mauricio Pochettino.

The 22 year old Colombian arrived from Ajax in the summer 2017 transfer window and despite the money sent to Amsterdam, not far off £40m, it was assumed he’d spend the first season mainly settling in and picking up minutes where he could.

That didn’t happen, at least partly down to situations with others, and Sanchez quickly became key for Spurs.

Speaking to Marco Claro whilst away on international duty with Colombia, Sanchez has been asked about his current situation at Tottenham, to which he replied: “I am very good and calm thanks to the confidence of the coach, there are a lot of things to improve in the team, we are looking to overcome the potholes that come our way.

“In the Champions League we must raise our heads and in the Premier League we are calm adding points.”

Sanchez will have an important role with his country, especially with Yerry Mina still to play a match since his move from Barcelona to Everton in the summer.

Pochettino will be crossing his fingers there’s no fitness issues with his own Colombian.
