Ex-Ajax manager and current Borussia Dortmund manager Peter Bosz speaking in his pre-match press conference spoke very highly of new Tottenham signing Davinson Sanchez, a player he managed last year at Ajax.

As reported by Talksport, Bosz narrated how Sanchez took him by surprise, "What surprised me was that he played the final of the Copa Libertadores last year, which he won and without any vacation, he came to us (Ajax) and after one week he played. He played the whole season. He was never injured".

"He always worked hard in training and I think he became a better player since he came to us, especially with the ball. Without the ball, he is a monster. He is strong in the air, he's fast. With the ball, in Ajax, we had a certain way of playing which he had to adapt to.

"I think he progressed and I saw him playing against Everton and he did well. He is a good player, even though he is still young", he concluded.

As his ex-manager briefly eluded to, Sanchez took to the Premier League like fish to water. His performance against Everton underlined all his qualities pace, power and on the odd occasion his quality on the ball.

The Columbian, understandably, has some pressure on his young shoulders being the club's record signing, and his performance against a top team will keep the naysayers away for now.

However, it is clear what he brings to the table at Tottenham. The 21-year-old's qualities set him apart from Toby Alderweireld and Jan Vertonghen, adding variety to an already strong defensive unit at Tottenham.

Spurs have undoubtedly been drawn in one of the most difficult groups in the Champions League, and if they're to qualify for the last 16 stage of the competition, their defence will need to come to the fore.

In the long term, the North-London club might potentially have a world beater on their hands, especially if he can improve like the other former Ajax players who play in the Tottenham shirt.
