‘Tough’ – Pundit view: Player has no Tottenham future after failure to take chance

Bryan Gil is not Premier League-ready and doesn’t have a future at Tottenham after failing to take the opportunities he has been given, says Paul Robinson.

Amidst a severe injury crisis, the Spanish international made two starts against Aston Villa and Manchester City. However, he was substituted at halftime of the latter match, when Adam Crafton of The Athletic compared him to a child. Ange Postecoglou then moved him to the bench, where he has remained.

The 22-year-old winger is perceived by BBC Sport analyst Robinson as “small” and “lightweight,” thus he doesn’t think he will last at Tottenham Hotspur Stadium.

Robinson said exclusively to Tottenham News, “Based on what I’ve seen so far, I don’t think he has a future.”

“He doesn’t appear to be Premier League ready, and when he has entered games, he hasn’t made an impact.

In the roles he has been requested to play, he physically appears little and light.

It’s difficult because the manager has offered him chances to start and come off the bench, but he hasn’t seized them.

“He doesn’t seem like a top-tier Premier League player to me.”

However, in the two seasons that have passed, he has only made 37 appearances for Tottenham because he was loaned to Valencia and Sevilla, his former clubs, for a portion of each season.

In that time, he has only managed two assists and no goals, which has also disappointed. If he can’t make an impression now that the Spurs roster is nearly empty, he probably won’t get another opportunity.
