Davinson Sanchez says that he can “trust” Mauricio Pochettino because the Tottenham manager used to be a centre-half.
Sanchez joined Tottenham in the summer, joining for an initial £28million from Ajax.
His fee could rise to a club-record £42m with add-ons however, and the 21-year-old has taken to Premier League football well.
The Colombian has started 17 of 24 Premier League games, with only two of Tottenham’s five league defeats coming with him in the side.
Tottenham faced competition for his signature in the summer, and Pochettino was key.
“The first person I spoke with was Pochettino and I had the chance to go to Italy, but Mauricio convinced me,” he told Marca.
“He was a central defender and I feel I can trust him, as what he wants from me seems very reasonable.
“He speaks to you face to face and I try to listen to him a lot.”
