After a prolonged managerial hunt, Espirito Santo was appointed as Jose Mourinho’s successor, but after a very promising start which saw him win August’s Manager of the Month award, things have turned sour when Spurs went five games without a win in 90 minutes, which included a derby defeat at the hands of Arsenal.
Are you worried about the football at Tottenham Hotspur?
Following that defeat, reports emerged that the Portuguese coach was fighting to save his job, and he appears to have done that for now having picked up back-to-back wins in all competitions. However, The Athletic has claimed that if Daniel Levy wanted to sack the Spurs boss, it would not cost the club a lot as the manager is ‘not on a huge salary’.
What have these Tottenham fans been saying?
“So he’s accepted a low wage and that clause so he gets sacked for free this guy doesn’t have any dignity”
“He is a stop gap. Theyre happy to string us along for another couple of years. ENIC living in hope that Poch might come back or they can sell.”
“Well that’s a relief”
“Finally good news”
After the international break, Spurs face some tricky fixtures, but ones that may well highlight where they’re going to be challenging in the Premier League with West Ham United, Manchester United and Everton all to come in their next four league matches.
Since Tottenham managed to reach the Champions League final, it’s been a steady decline, especially in the league – having gone from playing in the Champions League against the likes of Real Madrid to now having to face teams from Slovenia in the Europa Conference League.
