Emerson Royal – what Tottenham should expect out of right-back signed from Barcelona

By Charlie Eccleshare and Mark Carey

After Serge Aurier’s positive attacking play but shaky defending, and Japhet Tanganga’s solid but conservative performances at the start of this season, have Tottenham Hotspur now found the happy medium at right-back?

Emerson Royal arrives from Barcelona for £25.8 million (including potential add-ons of £4.3 million) with a reputation for being able to attack and also defend aggressively. He has had some questionable moments with the latter, suggesting he may be more in the Aurier mould, but generally his defensive numbers are good and he impressed the coaches at Real Betis last season with his committed displays.

The rangy Royal (Emerson Aparecido Leite de Souza Junior was given the nickname by an aunt as a child because she thought he looked like the cartoon mascot with a large smile and big white teeth for the “Royal” brand of jelly. He prefers to go by that moniker than Emerson, and at Betis wore E. Royal on the back of his shirt) arrives at Spurs having featured for Brazil in the Copa America final against Argentina off the back of an impressive season at Betis that included a goal and four La Liga assists (more than any other defender in the division).

Once last season finished, Barcelona exercised the buy-back clause they had inserted when selling Royal (pronounced “Royale”) to Betis immediately after signing him from Belo Horizonte side Atletico Mineiro in the summer of 2019.

There was always a sense Barcelona might immediately sell Royal on again, but he then featured in their first three games of the season and started against Getafe at the weekend. However, after a difficult evening on Sunday that included being caught out for Sandro Ramirez’s equaliser, and more importantly a cash-strapped Barcelona accepting the 22-year-old was one of their very few saleable assets, a deal was agreed with Tottenham.

Royal had grown up supporting Barcelona and was disappointed that his time at the Catalan club had been so quickly cut short again. But he is understood to be looking forward to the new challenge and heartened by how much the Spurs hierarchy and head coach Nuno Espirito Santo wanted him. Royal was impressed by what he heard from managing director of football Fabio Paratici, and he also spoke to his compatriot Lucas Moura, who was full of praise for the club, who currently sit top of the Premier League table.

After only scoring three goals in their three league games so far, it’s hoped Royal will add a bit of zip to the Tottenham attack.

This is what Spurs are getting in their new right-back…


From his early days playing for Atletico Mineiro, Royal has always played with energy and drive down the right flank. Before that, he never had any path in his mind other than becoming a professional footballer.

During his two full seasons at Betis (he was also loaned there from Atletico Mineiro before joining Barcelona), Royal established himself as one of La Liga’s more eye-catching defenders. He scored three league goals in his first campaign and last season helped Betis finish sixth and qualify for the Europa League. An outstanding display in a key game against Villarreal, who finished a place below Betis, where he scored the winner was particularly memorable.

Those who have watched Royal regularly believe he can step up and become an important player for Tottenham.

“He went to the Copa America even though he was very young and in two or three years can be Brazil’s first-choice right-back,” says Marcelo Bechler, a Barcelona-based Brazlian journalist for TNT sports. “He just needs to keep improving and maintain his focus. He has skills to be at the level that Spurs need.”

Spurs hope Royal will offer them another attacking dimension, and they must be relieved that he has not been selected for Brazil’s World Cup qualifiers this month and will avoid the quarantining issues some of their other South American players are facing.

Tanganga is naturally a centre-back and although he has been very solid at right-back so far this season, he doesn’t have the thrust in the final third of either Royal or Aurier. There were moments on Sunday against Watford when either he turned back to pass to midfielder Pierre-Emile Hojbjerg or held his position rather than bombing forward.

There will be games, like the opening-weekend win against Manchester City two weeks ago, where Tanganga will be just what is required, but signing Royal gives them a different option (now that Aurier has been deemed surplus to requirements and had his contract cancelled). Tanganga’s ability to excel in the defensive right-back role also explains why Spurs have gone for someone like Royal rather than their original target Takehiro Tomiyasu, who is more in the Tanganga mould and on Tuesday joined Arsenal from Bologna instead.

Spurs also have Matt Doherty in the squad, but it’s worth remembering that Nuno sold him to Spurs last summer when still Wolves coach because he didn’t think the Irishman was effective enough at moving the ball up the flank. Royal is far more effective in this regard.

Looking at the data from smarterscout, which rates an individual’s ability in specific metrics out of 99 relative to other players in their position, we can get a sense of how Royal likes to get forward.

In possession, his profile shows that he regularly passes the ball over short spaces (link-up play volume rating: 82 out of 99) and therefore keeps possession for his team well (ball retention: 76 out of 99). You can see from the below graphic that he rarely looks to play searching balls upfield (progressive passing: 13/99).

Instead, he will often move the ball into dangerous areas (xG from ball progression: 64 out of 99) by running with it rather than through passing. He likes to get forward and support the attack (receptions in the box: 83/99), like in this example from a Betis vs Barcelona game in February.


Royal picks the ball up outside the box


He beats Jordi Alba and finds a yard of space


Before delivering a perfect cross for Borja Iglesias to score from close range

Assists like the one above have won Royal many admirers back home in Brazil, and have seen him be viewed in the tradition of their great attacking full-backs of years gone by. He is not yet at that level but Royal has been compared to Maicon (in his heyday before the taxi, etc) and, to a lesser extent, Dani Alves. When Royal was re-signed by Barcelona this summer in fact, he was asked about one day emulating the great Alves at the Nou Camp. The fact both men went from Brazil to Seville-based clubs was another similarity.

Like Sevilla old boy Alves, Royal is also able to look after his whole flank — something that none of Spurs’ recent right-backs, with the possible exception of Aurier, can do. Royal is both active and strong defensively. His ability to make frequent defensive actions (disrupting opposition moves rating: 85 out of 99) is also shown by his 4.9 tackles and interceptions per 90 minutes — in the top five per cent for full-backs across the five top European leagues.

Royal is very much a front-foot defender, regularly looking to press the opposition and get close to his man (defending intensity: 90/99). His 16.1 pressures per 90 placed him in the top 15 per cent of full-backs in La Liga last season.

And Royal’s athleticism is such that even if he has bombed forward to attack, he is quick enough to recover and defend.

The following example from Betis’s 2-0 win at Huesca in January is indicative of this.


Having been up for an attack, Royal has to quickly track back


He has the pace to make up the 10 or so yards advantage Pedro Mosquera has


Which allows him to make an important interception

There’s a view that the more physical Premier League will suit Royal better than La Liga did, especially at Barcelona where their bespoke style is harder to adapt to. “For a team that defends more and tries to attack really fast, he can be a good weapon,” says Bechler. “The way that he plays will fit very well in the Premier League and with Nuno’s style — he’s better playing on the counter-attack.

“He can cross, he can shoot from outside the area. If he has a good connection with (Harry) Kane and Son (Heung-min), he will improve the team a lot.”

Certainly his ability to pound up and down the right flank with those long legs made a big impression on those who watched him at Betis, where he formed a very good partnership with Nabil Fekir.

“His athleticism is mainly what makes him so great,” says Andrew Miller, a writer on La Liga and founder of Betico News, which focuses on Real Betis. “Emerson is a very powerful runner. He has plenty of pace to keep up with opposition wide players and seems to always be able to dig deep and find that second wind late in games.

“He’s good in the air and given his height (6ft), he usually has an immediate advantage over shorter wingers. He’s also deceptively strong despite his relatively slender, almost lanky body. He has long legs and that helps him when jockeying for possession.

“He has a great understanding of how to adjust his body when fighting to win the ball. His timing and success rate on tackles is one of his biggest strengths and his ability to correctly anticipate the trajectory of the ball means he’s almost always in a great position to compete in the air.”

There are, however, question marks about Royal’s defending and decision-making.

He looked uncertain against Getafe on Sunday and Barcelona manager Ronald Koeman could be heard telling his players during a drinks break that they couldn’t defend like that. Royal was then substituted just after the hour mark. His decision-making, while it has improved over the last year or so, can also let him down. Often, this comes from being too conservative with his passing when actually he has the ability to play more progressively.

Taking his strengths and weaknesses into account, how then does Royal compare with the man whose place he is taking from last season, Aurier, and the one who has been first choice this campaign, Tanganga?

Starting with Aurier, the Ivorian is very strong in his actions that contribute to his team’s chances of scoring (xG from shot creation rating: 94 out of 99). His two goals and three assists in the Premier League last season are evidence of this. Aurier is also an avid shooter for a right-back, as a proportion of the touches he has (shot volume: 91 out of 99).

He is similar to Royal in engaging in a lot of defensive actions (disrupting opposition moves) and having plenty of opportunities to defend (defending intensity). Likewise, his ability to win possession and prevent opponents progressing further forward (defending impact) compares with the Brazilian. What the numbers don’t necessarily pick up are the lapses in concentration that his detractors feel undermine Aurier’s game.

Tanganga, meanwhile, played so little last season that his numbers should be taken with a huge pinch of salt. But what they do show is a tenacious player who gets tight (defending intensity rating: 96 out of 99), and someone keeps it fairly simple on the ball (link-up play volume: 74 out of 99) and competes for a lot of headers (aerial duels quantity: 83/99). In an attacking sense, his receptions in the box are 4/99, way down from Royal’s 83/99.


Away from the pitch, Royal is known for his dedication.

He works in his home gym to try and improve his physicality and leads a quiet life. He very rarely gets injured and is seen as a counterpoint to the dated stereotype of Brazilian players enjoying a party lifestyle.

Away from football, he likes playing with his dogs and staying at home with family, friends and his girlfriend. Barbecues with his mates, singing and playing video games are his main activities. He doesn’t yet speak much English but it’s expected someone so intelligent and curious he will pick up the basics pretty quickly.

Royal also possesses a certain self-assuredness. At his Barcelona unveiling this summer, he enjoyed going through the ritual of keepy-uppys, and looked undaunted by comparisons with Alves and another former Brazilian Barcelona right-back, 2005-06 Champions League final match-winner Juliano Belletti. He is ambitious, and wants one day to get to that sort of level.

And with the smile that originally earned him that Royal nickname, Spurs’ new signing has the potential to quickly become a hit with the supporters.

“He was certainly one of the fan favourites at Betis,” says Miller. “A player working hard and being dedicated to the team is a very big thing with the Spanish support, and Emerson personified that. He was always willing to put his body on the line for the good of the team.”

Spurs are hoping that Betis’s loss will very much be their gain.

You’re right it’s a pain; not sure Tanganga will be able to cover CB; he’ll be covering Royale at RB! Bare bones, we’re down to our bare bones!! No one wants a World Cup in 50 degree temperatures in a country with dubious human rights and no genuine love of football. Just bin the whole thing I say.

My attention is on Liverpool now. That side hasn’t had much fresh blood for two years and like all teams they eventually reach their ‘best before’ date. With City, Untied, Cheatski all strengthening, I’d say Liverpool are our hope for competing for that place in the top four. With Leicester of course!

We’ll know in 6 weeks whether we can even aspire to top 4, but isn’t it great that we can even consider it! I think a lot will depend on Romero (can he make a solid looking defence an excellent one and step forward) and LC (can be be an effective No10).

The big problem is this dratted quarantine for South American players. It’s going to deprive us of Romero, Lo Celso, Sanchez for two more international breaks. In effect we’ll not see much of them until after Christmas.
(It’s ridiculous, Lo Celso has never had a run in the side because of injuries and that will continue for another three months.)
It very much looks like Tanganga will be needed as a centre back to support Dier and Rodon. Fortunately Davies can play there as well in the European games.

Infuriating. I wonder if Liverpool will find some way of preventing their African players (Mané, Salad, and Keita) from disappearing to the AFCON? But even then, the two week mid winter break helps them from missing too much playing time.

Ah, memories of Manchester United players lingering at death’s door during international duty call up time, only for Fergie’s miraculous snake oil elixir to bring them back from the brink, just in time for the very next league game.

Did anyone see the potentially leg snapping late lunge on Messi in the Argentina v Venezuela tie? Defender rightly saw red, and for a while I bet Poch/PSG were holding their breath. Fortunately he was OK to carry on.

This is a first. I agree with a Paul Merson utterance. Referring to MU he said “Ronaldo and Sancho sell shirts; Kane wins you the league”. I agree, I’m astounded they didn’t go for him.

The United paranoia was confirmed by Simon Stone:

‘And there was more to this transfer than a late charm offensive.

I am told one senior United figure said to Ferguson that he would prefer to “gouge his own eyes out” rather than allow City to sign a player so associated with United.’

Like Bale? We saw the euphoria when he came on loan, sadly he never got to play in front of a home crowd of any size. However I have the feeling it wasn’t a mutual romance. He was here to get ready for the Euros, far away from Zidane.

Seems part of the reason United signed Ronaldo was to stop him going to City, I don’t think we signed Bale to stop him going elsewhere.

I would be a little worried if I was Ole, despite their supporters complaining about the Glazers and a lack of transfer activity, Sky were reporting they have spent over 400 million in the past 3 seasons.

Well, the net amount over the Ole reign now stands at £295 million.
(£412 m spent, £117 m sold.)

I think that’s fairer than simply looking at incomings.

Of course certain ‘free’ or lower fee players are on eye watering wages…

The funniest part was the look on Powell’s face when she got fact-checked. She’s so used to being in a bubble where all her crazy goes unchallenged, she didn’t know what to do when the reporter pushed back.

I was surprised too. Some of her statements (she answered nothing) left me with the deeply unsettling impression she is mentally divorced from reality now. Not that she is lying, just has created her own fragile world view. Total dissonance.
Maybe she thought a foreign journalist would be sympathetic? If maga think US MSM is lying, perhaps outside news agencies will be more in accord with their reality. Only to have this disturbing wake up call.

Football journalist Ian McGarry: “My information is that Kane’s position now is that his representative, who is his brother, Charlie Kane, is hopeful of negotiating an upgrade on Kane’s current contract, That would include a release clause, meaning that Kane could leave next summer or indeed in January for a set fee, rather than the haggling which went on during the last few months between City and Tottenham. Kane himself still sees his future as playing in a team that will win trophies, something that he has not experienced.”

It was widely reported that Levy offered Kane a bumper new deal to stay at Spurs, but Kane rejected that deal and kept pushing for a move. But Kane now expects Levy to negotiate a new contract, just to add a release clause?

It sounds like the source of this story is Charlie Kane and his wishful thinking.

Reportedly Kane has hired Triple S Communications, who according to the company website, “is comprised of a highly-experienced team of individuals that work collaboratively with clients to achieve results. Their professional experiences are diverse and complement each other to provide a wide-range of media services.”

Kane’s on 200k a week (10.4mil per year). Even if he cut his wages in half (which I don’t believe he would offer), that gives little incentive to Levy for a low release fee.
