Tottenham Hotspur correspondent Alasdair Gold has been speaking on the latest edition of The Fighting Cock podcast to discuss all things related to the north London club. 

The summer brought big changes for Spurs both on and off the pitch, with Espirito Santo being appointed as their new manager.

Espirito Santo has built a reputation of not being particularly keen on dealing with the press during his time managing Wolverhampton Wanderers.

However, discussing the 47-year-old’s start to life at Spurs, Gold had the following to say on how the Portuguese man has been with since arriving at the club.

“I’ve got to be honest, I expected the absolute worst as well. I know a fair few reporters from the Wolves area, and they were saying you’re going to have a ‘mare, he won’t answer many of your questions, he could even get angry, storm out of press conferences. He sees it as this unnecessary distraction from his job.

“But to be fair, I think – and this is the impression I’ve got – I think people behind the scenes at Spurs have sat him down and said look, with no disrespect to Wolves, this is another step up now.

“So I think he had to come into the job and maybe [put on] a bit of a charm offensive, you know, and just be an open honest guy. And that’s exactly what I’ve found.”

TIF Thoughts on Nuno’s start to life at Spurs…

The Lilywhites are yet to concede a goal in their opening three League games and currently sit top of the tree as the only side on maximum points.

However, there are still elements in which Tottenham can improve, as they are yet to score more than once in any of their League games this season.

With three consecutive London derbies coming up for Spurs in the league after the international break, we could learn a lot more about Espirito Santo’s side by the end of the month.
