Fernando Llorente did what he was told, when Tottenham on Friday night storpryglede poor Attempt far out of the FA Cup with 7-0.
Basher scored three times and showed again that his long rods have not been rusty from sitting so much on the bench.
Yet he had to find himself in, that he after 75 minutes at the position 6-0, suddenly was pulled out by manager Mauricio Pochettino.
In came Harry Kane.
So could Llorente otherwise, nicely take a seat on the bench and see the star over all of them in Tottenham's last quarter, where he managed to score a single time and thus definitively hammers a final nail in the Attempt-the coffin.
It was logical to raise more than an eyebrow over indskiftningen. Could Llorente be tired, and it could be logical that he should. But why the hell put Kane on the track? It was all over, and it was not because among all needed playing time after having been out with an injury. Even conducting some harsh tasks, where kane's grades must be launched.
There was other stuff behind.
It explained Pochettino after the match.
- It is about respect. Respect for people, respect for the opponent. They're not going to get many chances to see Harry Kane play in a tournament like the FA Cup. I think it was a good atmosphere, said increasing the argentinian.
There were several reasons that I chose to swap. It was important to show respect for the audience, so that they could see Harry Kane, who is an icon in the football league, said Pochettino.
in turn, had to Danish Christian Eriksen come to terms with a place on the bench through the whole match. Share Alli, who has been suffering with an injury, played the whole match.
- He did it, getting the brief from manager for its English star.
Now waiting for the League Cup semi-final against Chelsea on Tuesday, while Manchester United come to visit in the Premier League next Sunday.
