Davinson Sánchez revalues ​​at Tottenham

Por Aliet Arzola

The football season of clubs in Europe almost ends and in each league accounts are taken out to write about the best players in the course. In England, scene of one of the most competitive leagues of the continent, the Colombian Davinson Sánchez holds headlines, because, besides being included in the eleven sub-23 of the tournament, he is also considered one of the most revalued players of the year according to the CIES Football Observatory.

This independent group of research on the most universal of sports, endorsed by FIFA, included the portentous coffee defender on a list of 50 players, led by Liverpool's Egyptian Mohamed Salah (bought for 88 million euros and currently rated at 162.8 million). The striker is escorted by the Portuguese Ederson Moraes, goalkeeper of Manchester City, and his teammate Leroy Sané, the German who was under Pep Guardiola and has shown a great level in this campaign. Davinson, who signed for Tottenham in the last summer window from Dutch Ajax, cost 35.4 million, and now his value has increased by 42.2 million (up to 77.6). 

While this list can be taken as a purely subjective issue, there is clear evidence of the qualitative leap of Sanchez, who came to the Spurs as a piece of projection and has established himself among the immovable defenders in the schemes of the Argentine coach Mauricio Pochettino. The former Atletico Nacional has impressed significantly, because the change from Holland to England is very abrupt for a 21-year-old boy, especially if you go to a hugely demanding team like Tottenham, qualified for the Champions League and with the goal of stay among the first four of the Premier. However, Davinson has shown serenity and a lot of competitiveness, details that have allowed him to earn a fixed position with Colombia ahead of the World Cup in Russia. 

Sanchez has won 31.71% of the defensive duels in the Premier, and accumulates only two yellow cards in 37 games, impeccable history that has shot its value through the roof. So great has been his impact that he is included as the stellar defender of the eleven gala for under 23s in the domestic tournament. The coffee is next to the French Kurt Zouma (Stoke City) and Nathan Aké (Bournemouth), who do not surpass it in the defensive confrontations won in the contest. As an added value, Sanchez is not a static defender, as he can play as a libero with three defenders or as a center right, without ruling out the option to fall to the side if necessary. Undoubtedly, its current competitive level is one of the main strengths of Colombia towards the World Cup.
