Both Tino Livramento and Thierry Small have claimed that former Tottenham right-back Kyle Walker-Peters is one of the most underrated players they have ever played with.

Walker-Peters joined Southampton in the summer of 2020 after a successful loan spell on the south coast in the second half of the 2019/20 campaign, with Pierre-Emile Hojbjerg making a move in the opposite direction.

The Spurs academy graduate’s stock has grown steadily since his move to St Mary’s thanks to his consistent performances for Ralph Hasenhuttl’s side.

Not only has the 24-year-old demonstrated the attacking attributes he has shown in the few opportunities he has had at Spurs, but he has also seemingly improved the defensive side of his game.

Livramento and Small have now revealed that the former Tottenham man also plays central midfield during training, insisting he is capable of doing a good job in that position.

When asked to name the underrated players they play with, Livramento said Rising ballers“Kyle Walker-Peters, he can play either side, different waves. He played as a central midfielder several times in training.

Small added: “Yeah, Kyle is also a baller. He can play center-midfield too.

Serge Aurier, Walker-Peters and Kieran Trippier would all have been better suited to the right-back role in Conte’s system than Emerson Royal.

It shows how chaotic our recruitment has been and the cost of appointing managers with completely different philosophies.

I don’t mean this as a criticism of Emerson as I think he would be a competent right-back in a back-four, but he just doesn’t offer enough of a future to play as a wing-back.
