BBC pundit says one Spurs player causes opponents ‘so many problems’

Tottenham Hotspur full-back Destiny Udogie earned praise from Clinton Morrison during Spurs’ FA Cup third-round meeting with Burnley on Friday night.

Speaking on Radio 5 Live, the BBC Sport analyst praised the 21-year-old Spurs player and eventual match winner Pedro Porro for his contributions to the game.

At the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium, Ange Postecoglou’s team defeated the Clarets to guarantee their spot in the competition’s fourth round.

It must be acknowledged that neither Burnley nor Spurs gave a vintage performance. But a flash of genius in the 78th minute proved to be the difference between the Premier League pair.

After regaining possession of the ball within the Burnley half, Porro steadied himself with a touch before unleashing an incredible strike into the top-left corner.


Udogie made an excellent showing that evening as well, but the Spaniard took center stage for his spectacular victory.

The 20-year-old was quick to get forward and make good connections with Brennan Johnson. He also played a strong defense.

Shortly after the second half began, Morrison stated on Radio 5 Live, via the BBC Sport website, “Tottenham’s full backs Udogie and Porro will be crucial in this second half.”

“It seems like everything good in the future passes through them (the full-backs).” Sometimes they switch to midfield and cause a lot of issues.

Tottenham strike gold with Destiny Udogie signing

Tottenham well and truly struck gold with Udogie. At just 21 years of age, he’s already a fixture in the Spurs starting XI, and he more than holds his own in the Premier League.

It’ll be exciting to see how the Italian continues to develop. He’s at the right place at Tottenham under the tutelage of Ange Postecoglou, and it looks as though he can become a superstar.
