On the latest episode of the Gold and Guest talk Tottenham podcast, Alasdair Gold has been discussing Nuno Espirito Santo’s start to life at Tottenham Hotspur following their latest defeat.
Spurs tasted their second consecutive 3-0 defeat on the weekend to their London rivals, Chelsea. The defeats have seen Tottenham sink from the top of the league to seventh place and open up a four-point gap behind the leaders.
Will Nuno be at Spurs by the end of the season?
The back-to-back defeats have also piled the pressure on Espirito Santo from some of the Spurs fans, with some already calling for a change of manager.
And discussing the Portuguese manager’s start to life in north London, Gold voiced his concerns regarding whether the 47-year-old will be given the time to transform the Spurs side.
“I just feel he needs a little bit of time, but I’m just worried whether the time is there for him. Because we know the background, we know the fans, most of them didn’t really want him as the manager in the first place.
“I think he raised expectations with those early wins, you know, beating Manchester City and all that, whatever we’re now rewriting those games to be.”
TIF Thoughts on Nuno at Spurs…
The north London club made an impressive start to the campaign, with three wins from their opening three games, however, they were only able to score one goal in each match.
This coming week offers the Lilywhites to get some of their fans back onside, with the north London derby approaching this weekend as Spurs seek a first league win at the Emirates Stadium since 2010.
It is still early days for Espirito Santo at Spurs and he is still yet to have a full-strength squad at his disposal with injuries plaguing his side recently and Harry Kane yet to hit any sort of form in the league, so perhaps it is too early to judge him or worry about his long-term future.
