Tottenham need to sign a brand new back four, according to Gabby Agbonlahor.
Speaking exclusively to Football Insider, the ex-Aston Villa and England striker slammed the Spurs defence, including the “shocking” Sergio Reguilon, for their display against Leeds United at the weekend.
Spurs were easily beaten 3-1 at Elland Road as Ryan Mason suffered his first defeat in the Premier League as a manager.
Left-back Reguilon had a particularly bad game as he lost possession a whopping 19 times – the joint-most of any Spurs player, according to sofascore.
Back in February, Roy Keane hit back at Jamie Redknapp’s claim that the Spaniard was one of the Premier League’s top left-backs on Sky Sports Super Sunday and Agbonlahor insisted his display in west Yorkshire proved him right.
He told Football Insider correspondent Connor Whitley: “It was the defending of a team that looked like their season’s gone.
“It wasn’t a team that has any confidence they’re going to get into the top four. It wasn’t a team that looked together.
“It looked like a bunch of players where the season’s done for them, they tossed it off.
“Yes, Harry Kane and [Heung-min] Son are always a threat but the rest of the team went through the motions.
“The amount of times Leeds had them two-on-one or three-on-two, it was amazing to see.
“I think it’s a big job for Mason and Daniel Levy has a big job on his hands to bring in somebody who can motivate these players.
“You could say they need a whole new back four.
“We saw Roy Keane’s comments about Reguilon a few months ago and he was exactly right. He proved Roy Keane right, he was shocking.”
