“Playing with Fire: Michael Owen’s Blunt Critique of Tottenham’s Ball-Giving Midfielder!”

Ally McCoist said that he was very taken aback by the defensive positioning that Destiny Udogie adopted for Tottenham Hotspur last night against Fulham.

csaw another great victory for Spurs while covering the game for TalkSPORT (24/10 8:23pm).

A team that appeared to be in total disaster only a few months ago has been completely transformed by Ange Postecoglou.

The loss of Harry Kane could have caused the club to slide backward, but instead, they are in inspirational form and leading the Premier League by two points.

He has successfully incorporated several new acquisitions into the team and introduced a whole different tactical approach.

Despite not being a new addition to the squad this year, Destiny Udogie has only recently made her debut after spending the previous campaign on loan at Udinese.

Udogie, who is known for being an attacking wing-back, has displayed skill in one-on-one matches against players like Bukayo Saka and Mohamed Salah.

Ally McCoist has acknowledged that he was surprised by where Udogie was winding up on the field during yesterday’s match against Fulham.

The defender, who cost £21 million, is getting better and better and appears to have adapted naturally to a whole new role this season.

Udogie’s position against Fulham startled McCoist.

McCoist said of the Italian defender: “I’m looking at [Destiny] Udogie’s starting position as well when Tottenham has it in kind of a back three.

He is actually occupying the left side of the number 10 slot.

It’s amazing how far up the pitch he is.

After taking a knock last night, Udogie didn’t quite make it to the hour mark and was replaced by Emerson Royal.

The Italian’s athleticism allows him to move fast up and down the field, but his football savvy deserves recognition.

It’s difficult for a defender to learn how to play as an inverted full-back so fast and drift into offensive areas the way he does.

He has already contributed two assists from advanced areas, and given that he has scored eight goals in the last two seasons, it wouldn’t be unexpected to see him do so soon.

Udogie’s stance against Fulham may have startled McCoist, but Spurs supporters are accustomed to seeing him pop up near the top of the pitch.

After receiving his international debut last week, he has established himself as an important component of Postecoglou’s system and has gained recognition in his native country.
