When Harry was running through his list of centre backs at the weekend he excluded the name of Bongani Khumalo but the player’s agent is adamant that the South African is ready for the Premiership and ready to play a part in Tottenham’s run in to the end of the season.
“Really, we had no cover at centre-half and no cover up front,” Harry said.
“No disrespect to the bench but it is nowhere near the sort of bench we had six to eight weeks ago.”
Glyn Binkin however clearly feels that Bongani shouldn’t be overlooked.
“He is hopeful and confident that he can finally break into the starting line-up. This is the chance he plans to grab with both hands,” Binkin said.
“We must remember that he has only been at the club for 14 months, but he won’t give up. He has worked hard to get to the English Premiership.
“He doesn’t want to comment on the current situation at the club, but one thing I can say it that he is eager to play.”
Spurs are up against Blackburn this Sunday but is Bongani worth a place in the team?
