A number of Tottenham Hotspur fans have been left angered by Nuno Espirito Santo after he alluded to ‘problems’ the club have following the international break.
While speaking to the press ahead of the game, Espirito Santo vaguely referred to some concerns he had, but wouldn’t go into any great detail.
As reported by Football.london, he said: “After the international break there are always problems. We have problems but I won’t say them before the game.”
As things stand, Spurs are reportedly looking to rush back a number of their South American stars via private jet so they arrive in time for Sunday’s match against Newcastle United. This could well be the issue he referred to, or it could be something even more dramatic.
Will Spurs beat Newcastle this weekend?
Either way, when the quotes were shared by The Spurs Express on Twitter, the club’s supporters were not too impressed.
What did these Spurs fans have to say?
“He needs to go tbh.”
It does feel as if the Tottenham manager has to do an awful lot to win over many of the club’s supporters. A win last time out in the Premier League against Aston Villa was a good step in the right direction, but he’ll need to repeat that trick against the Magpies to keep these fans off his back.
If he cannot find any solutions to the ‘problems’ that he refers to, Sunday could turn into a difficult day for all involved with the club.
