Tottenham expert issues 'crazy' Rodrigo Bentancur claim as 'incredible' footage emerges

Rodrigo Bentancur is now the most important player at Tottenham after his display against Liverpool.

That is according to Spurs expert John Wenham, who regularly breaks news about the club on his Lilywhite Rose social media channels.

Bentancur, 25, started as Tottenham lost 2-1 to Liverpool in the Premier League on Sunday (6 November).

The midfielder dazzled despite the loss, catching the eye with a brilliant run which saw him dance past three Liverpool players before dropping the ball off to Harry Kane.

Last week (3 November), Wenham insisted the player in now world-class and he has now doubled down on that claim.

“That was just incredible, did you see it?” Wenham told Football Insider correspondent Ben Wild.

“He just went straight past those three players, these aren’t your average footballers either, they are Liverpool players.

“Bentancur has risen his game so much since he joined Tottenham. Other fans are starting to notice how good he really is.

“I believe he has been our player of the season so far which is crazy when I think Kane has 11 league goals this season.

“The improvement he gives us when he is playing compared to when he isn’t in the side is ridiculous. I expect him to go to the World Cup and shine.

“He will be the main man in that Uruguay team and I think other people will start to notice him. Juventus fans will start to wonder why they got rid of him for £15million.

“He is only going to get better and he is spending his best years with us.”

Bentancur has scored two goals this season.

He has now made 37 appearances for the club after joining from Juventus in January.
