By adding to Man United’s anguish, the ex-Tottenham star can once again prove that he made a huge blunder.
Tottenham is in a precarious position after losing their last three Premier League games.
Former Tottenham defender Juan Foyth may give his old club a kick in the teeth by outperforming Manchester United in Wednesday’s Champions League match against Villarreal. Spurs are currently in defensive upheaval, having suffered a humbling loss to north London rivals Arsenal on Sunday afternoon, as manager Nuno Espirito Santo tries to find a solution.
Foyth was loaned to Villarreal by Tottenham in 2020, and he has since gone from strength to strength.
Despite arriving in north London with a high reputation as a teenager in 2017, Foyth was never truly given the chance to prove his value at Spurs and sought regular action elsewhere.
Since joining the Yellow Submarine, he has demonstrated versatility by filling in at both right-back and center-back.
Those qualities could help his previous club Spurs get out of a defensive rut they’re in right now, as they’ve conceded nine goals in their last three games.
Leeds United have set a price for Kalvin Phillips, who has been linked with a move to Manchester United.
The most damaging loss was a 3-1 loss at the Emirates on Sunday, with Spurs putting up a poor first-half performance that might place Nuno in hot water if it continues.
The two-year deal given to the former Wolves boss this summer after Spurs sought a number of other targets was hardly a vote of confidence, and he may be wishing he had someone like Foyth to help him right the ship.
When Villarreal takes on Manchester United in the Champions League on Wednesday, the Argentine will be looking to prove his worth to an English audience once more.
United must be tormented by the Spaniards, who denied Ole Gunnar Solskjaer his first title as United manager by defeating them in the Europa League final in May.
Although there isn’t a key match this week, United still needs to win three points following their disastrous start to the season.
Following an embarrassing loss to Swiss minnows Young Boys, Solskjaer’s team is in desperate need of points against the group’s tougher opponents, with Atalanta rounding out the quartet.
Villarreal are no slouches, but they’ll need to find some additional gear after drawing five of their first five games. “Brinkwire News Summary.”
