Andy Townsend has given his opinion on Tottenham’s missed goal from Kalidou Koulibaly. Townsend claims that Emerson Royal was not in the right position in that moment and was responsible for the missed goal.
After all, it was the 23-year-old who was closest to hitting the goal post.
Speaking to Optus Sport, Townsend said the Brazilian defender’s mistake is to blame.
“I’m not sure if that’s Emerson Royal what he’s actually thinking or what he’s doing. He’s doing nothing. He just allows Koulibaly to nail that.”
So, the mistake that led to the goal will make Antonio Conte think even more deeply about this position, which is still far from being safe.
