Tottenham Hotspur: Alasdair Gold questions current role of Bryan Gil under Conte

Image for Tottenham Hotspur: Alasdair Gold questions current role of Bryan Gil under Conte

Alasdair Gold doesn’t understand the point of Bryan Gil being a Tottenham Hotspur player if he’s not going to get any minutes.

Gil was signed last summer under former manager Nuno Espirito Santo, but his first half of the season as a Tottenham player was pretty poor, with zero goal involvements from nine substitute appearances – which saw him head out on loan to La Liga in January.

The Spain international was signed for £21m and is still just 21 years old, however, Antonio Conte appears adamant to avoid using the Spaniard, having yet to hand him a league start. Even on Saturday, he was the only attacking option on the bench for Spurs and still didn’t get a look-in.

Gold has slammed the role that Gil has been handed at Spurs on his YouTube channel.

He said: “If Bryan Gil is not trusted by Conte, then what’s the point in him being there? He should have been loaned out.”

Does Bryan Gil deserve a chance?





TIF Thoughts on Gil…

It’s true that Gil probably should have been loaned out over the summer instead of taking up a spot in Conte’s Premier League squad, only for the Italian to seemingly have no interest in using him.

Daniel Levy and Spurs will be wanting to see some return on their investment and will be hopeful of it given that he’s still very young, but it will indeed be difficult for Gil to change Conte’s mind and perception of him if the first few months of the season are anything to go by.

How well do you know where these Spurs signings came from? Take our quiz to find out! Firstly, where did Dimitar Berbatov arrive from?

With the fixture schedule set to become very congested from this week onwards – especially for clubs like Spurs in European competitions – Conte will have to utilise his whole squad, and that could mean Gil gets a chance to show if he has stepped up and progressed from last term.

    Gil is far better than he was the last time I saw him play in a European Game, but he just doesn’t have the strength to ride a challenge. It’s a huge pity though because he reminds me SO much like Luka Modric. Maybe he should get whoever is working with Sessegnon to help because his strength is all that is lacking from him being world class.
