Tottenham and AVB still have faith in Benni.

Posted on May 28, 2013 by Guest Writer

It seems that AVB has spoken and the result is that he still considers that Benoit Assou-Ekotto is a very important part of the Tottenham squad for the coming season. It appears that Benni actually helped the team for the last four months or so by playing when not fully recovered from his long injury, which would explain his struggle for form and pace.

Almost certainly Benni and Danny Rose will be vying for the left back slot with Zeki Fryers also in the frame on occasions and gaining experience over the course of the coming season. Fryers will not take up a squad place due to his age and should certainly be given opportunities particularly in cup fixtures. This might prove to be a great opportunity for Rose and Tottenham, as we know he started his career as a left winger/midfielder and will allow AVB another option to provide wide left cover which has been lacking.

From a financial point of view this is great news as to actually buy a player that would significantly improve on those options would take up a major part of the budget with the likes of Baines costing upwards of £15m. Better that Tottenham keep Danny Rose and give him his chance and ensure that Benni is fully fit for the start of the season and back to his very best, this then will allow the entire budget to be allocated to those players that will make the biggest difference to the team, creative player(s) and specialist forwards.

This is all good news as both players have a massive affinity for Tottenham and have been with the club for many years. Because of Tottenham involvement in 3 Cup competitions next season which AVB will take seriously,Tottenham also have enormous expectation in the league and so there will be plenty of opportunities for all 3 players to be involved regularly, a situation which will be mirrored all over the pitch allowing for some of the youngsters to finally make their mark.
