Angel Rangel comments on Ben Davies playing for Tottenham Hotspur v Swansea City

Tottenham Warm Up

Swansea City defender Angel Rangel sends a warning to Tottenham Hotspur left-back Ben Davies.

Swansea City defender Angel Rangel has said that Ben Davies will not be welcomed too warmly on Saturday.

Defender Davies will return to the Liberty Stadium with Tottenham Hotspur this coming weekend for the first time since leaving Swansea in the summer transfer window.

The left-back has yet to cement his place in the Spurs starting line-up, but his recent performances suggest that he could feature against Swansea.

“Obviously Ben is a great player and a great professional," The South Wales Evening Post quotes Rangel as saying. "He's been doing well, but we're not friends on the pitch, we know that.

“We are professional and we have to compete and win the points. Afterwards we can talk and be friends again.

I'm glad he's doing well, but if I'm in the starting 11 I will be happy to play against him and stop him."

Davies enjoyed a breakthrough season at Swansea in 2013-14 and deservedly earned a move to Tottenham in the summer.

The Wales international, though, has been used sparingly by Spurs manager Mauricio Pochettino due to the competition for places.

But perhaps the Argentine boss would like to make use of the 21-year-old against his former club Swansea.

Davies is a very good player with potential, and he can be relied up to do the job for Tottenham.
