Jamie O’Hara has questioned Tottenham’s decision to sell right-back Kieran Trippier in the summer transfer window, saying that the move is already costing Tottenham in the Premier League.
England international Trippier left North London for Atletico Madrid in July, with the 28-year-old saying he couldn’t turn down the “great opportunity” of moving to Madrid and playing under Diego Simeone.
Spurs‘ most recent result saw them throw away a two-goal lead against Olympiacos in the Champions League which, according to O’Hara, is evidence that Mauricio Pochettino’s side made the wrong decision with the right-back.
“I think the problem you’ve got is that if [Christian] Eriksen goes, people will start questioning where the ambition is with the football club and they’re going to be like ‘are we going to kick on here? Are we going to get players in?’,” the pundit told talkSPORT.
“The biggest one for me is the Trippier one [which] I found strange. That’s where they’re struggling, Tottenham can’t hold onto a lead at the minute.
“They keep giving away poor goals and they didn’t replace someone who I thought was one of their best players. So in January I think they’re going to have to obviously look at that straight away. The back four to me doesn’t look as solid as it was last season.”
Spurs currently have eight points from their five games in the Premier League so far this season.
