Southampton legend Matt Le Tissier has reiterated his belief about Tottenham Hotspur midfielder Harry Winks on Twitter.

Le Tissier has stated on Twitter that while Winks is good at doing the simple things in midfield, the England international struggles when he tries something ambitious.

The former Southampton attacking midfielder made the comments on Twitter while responding to ex-Tottenham midfielder Kevin Watson, who was impressed with the performance of Winks against Leicester City in the Premier League on Sunday and praised him.


Against Leicester at Wembley Stadium in London on Saturday afternoon, Winks had a pass accuracy of 91.9%, won one header, attempted two dribbles, and made two tackles, four interceptions and one clearance, according to WhoScored.

So far this season, the 23-year-old midfielder has made 15 starts and eight substitute appearances in the Premier League, scoring one goal in the process, according to WhoScored.

This is not the first time that Le Tissier has said that Winks struggles to do the difficult things in midfield.

Le Tissier said about Winks on Gillette Soccer Saturday show on Sky Sports Premier League on Saturday, January 26, 2018 (12:49pm): "A lot of the time his passing is sideways and quite safe, and when it comes to do the difficult things, when he tries to do the difficult things, I think that’s when he struggles a bit. He keeps it nice and safe and simple, he looks a very good player.”
