Hutton slams Royal for Spurs

Speaking to Football Insider, former Tottenham Hotspur right-back and BBC Radio 5 Live pundit Alan Hutton has slammed Emerson Royal for his overall performances this season.

The Lowdown: Royal linked with exit…

It has been widely reported over this last week that Spurs and Fabio Paratici are now open to selling the Brazilian just a year after signing him in a £25 million deal from Barcelona.

The Sun say that Spurs are open to offer for Royal as manager Antonio Conte seemingly favours Republic of Ireland international Matt Doherty, particularly for his superior attacking player overall.

Marca (via Sport Witness) claim that the feeling is mutual on Royal’s part with the defender ‘willing’ to leave north London.

Sharing his verdict on the 23-year-old, Hutton has slammed Real Betis’ former star for his Spurs showings over 2021/2022.

The Latest: Hutton slams Royal…

Speaking to FI, the ex-Scotland international claimed that Royal has ‘really struggled’ and just ‘isn’t the answer’ for Conte.

He explained: “Emerson Royal, for me, isn’t the answer. I’ve watched him throughout the season, and he’s really struggled.

“We’re starting to see the best of Doherty but it’s about showing the manager that he’s capable of playing there long-term.”
