Well there’s no doubt Giovani Dos Santos is talented, the only trouble is that he has never really done what he does for Mexico when in a Spurs shirt.
There are cases that he is a bit of a party boy and not focused enough but on the other side has he really been given a chance? when did Gio have a proper run of like 10 or so games in the team? The same happened to Tarrabt and he was sold but he wasn’t a party boy and now it looks as though we might end up regretting that one. Does Redknapp just not see what we can see when it comes to flare? surely he must do, the man signed Di Canio.
With Modric looking more and more likely to end up elsewhere could Gio not play more of a part in the team? I know Kranjcar is waiting for that chance but what about Gio? I know he is not the same sort of player as Gio and likes to get forward more but so what, he can be an attacking midfielder as he will have Sandro breaking up the play behind him when he decides to push on. I have always said that I think we will regret the day we ever let Gio leave, I’d like for him to at least be given a chance and see what he can do. He usually looks good in pre season and then just vanishes off the face of the earth once the Premiership gets under way.
Jog Modric on, if he wants £100k a week then send him to Qatar, give Gio a chance don’t let it be Tarrabt again, I am not saying we shouldn’t have sold Tarrabt but we could have got more for him if he was given a chance to prove his worth. Everyone could see he had talent the trouble is that he knew he wouldn’t get a run in the team and so each game he did get as a 10 min sub he would try too hard to impress and not show us what he really was about.Follow @TrfficTottenham
