Tottenham manager Mauricio Pochettino has hinted that summer signing Fernando Llorente could start Spurs' Champions League tie against APOEL on Wednesday night, despite a frustrating start to life in north London.
Llorente arrived at Spurs as a deadline day transfer from Swansea, and has failed to find the back of the net yet for his new side - despite featuring in 16 games.
But now, manager Pochettino has hinted at possibly starting the Spaniard against APOEL on Wednesday night in order to give him a much needed confidence boost.
“Maybe he will play,” Pochettino said in his pre-match press conference (via football.london).
"It’s so difficult to arrive in a club without pre-season and perform the way that you want. But I am happy with his contribution. Of course, he is disappointed because when he plays he didn’t score but I am sure he is going to help the team,”
