Tottenham defender reveals he held talks with Pochettino about position change

Tottenham defender Juan Foyth has revealed that the full-back role that he currently plays in, is not based on his own preferrence.

The 21-year-old managed to feature on 17 ocassions for Spurs last season with 12 of those games coming in the Premier League.

Mauricio Pochettino has been slowly working on settling the young defender into the first team squad after seeing him move to the club from Argentina in the summer of 2017.

Speaking to Cielo Sports, Foyth said, “That I’m playing as a full-back is all down to him. One day, we were doing laps around the field and he called me over to talk and asked me if I would feel comfortable playing there.

“Obviously, I wanted to play and knowing that I could do it well, I said yes. I felt really good in the games I played.”
