Image for Tottenham Hotspur: Fans react to Nuno Espirito Santo claim

Hotspur fans on Twitter have been reacting to the latest claim to emerge concerning Lilywhites manager Nuno Espirito Santo. 

This comes after news Twitter account @TheSpursExpress shared a post on their page relaying news originally published in an article from Football.London by Alasdair Gold.

Starting with a current star. How many PL goals has Harry Kane scored for Spurs?

In the article, Gold claimed that “a number of people around Espirito Santo say he is still smarting and brooding from the havoc wreaked during the international break.”

To put that into context, the “havoc” that Gold mentioned in the article during the recent refers to the fact that Cristian Romero, Davinson Sanchez and Giovani Lo Celso were unable to play in the club’s recent 3-0 defeat against Crystal Palace after they defied Premier League rules to go on international duty in red-zoned countries.

This post then gathered a number of replies from Tottenham who were not shy in sharing their thoughts on the matter.

So, what did these Spurs fans have to say in response to Gold’s claim about Espirito Santo? 

“My man still played winks then brung on Davies. Digging is own grave that”


“Pathetic. is a fact of life for all clubs. I’m smarting and brooding from Nuno’s decision to play 3 dms against palace.”


“Not a good bit of PR that.”


“How about playing football with a bit more courage and attack. Maybe you’ll be less negative.”


“Behave this is just a distraction from his awful choices against Palace where we played some of the worst football I’ve ever seen”


“Im still brooding at our display on Saturday”


Looking at the replies to this post, it seems as though these Spurs fans don’t have much sympathy for Nuno’s apparent bad mood over the incident during the international break.

Given how Spurs only managed to rack up 38% possession during their defeat at Selhurst Park and a measly two attempts at goal (as per BBC Sport), it’s easy to see why.

Have you been impressed with Spurs under Nuno Espirito Santo so far?





In our view, while it was undoubtedly not ideal to have Lo Celso, Romero and Sanchez unavailable, we feel that Nuno should move on and focus on getting the best out of the players he currently has at his disposal rather than just brood over what happened during the international break.
