Tottenham’s supporters do not even have a song for defender Ben Davies despite his growing importance to the team, according to the Telegraph.
The newspaper claim that the White Hart Lane faithful are yet to show their appreciation of the left-back, 24, with a chant that reflects his growing status as a key player.
The Telegraph report that Davies, who joined Tottenham in the summer of 2014, remains unheralded even though Danny Rose faces a major fight to win back his place when he returns from a knee injury.
The 32-times Wales international scored his second goal of the season with a composed finish as Spurs demolished Huddersfield 4-0 on Saturday.
Davies is an unsung hero in the truest description of the term. With 98 Spurs appearances under his belt, it can’t be said that he is on the fringes of the team, or is relatively anonymous. But he has certainly stayed under the radar, despite his steady improvement under the tutelage of ace player-improver Mauricio Pochettino. Davies is more than a sound full-back, he is a polished performer who is one of the best players in his position in the Premier League. True, he does not have the swashbuckling style of road-runner Rose, but Davies’ performance levels rarely drop and, crucially, Tottenham win a high percentage of matches when he is in the team. Rose is on his way back from a knee injury that has sidelined him since late January. The fight for the first-choice left-back is no longer the procession it once was.
