“No doubts” as Tottenham boss Nuno Espirito Santo remains bullish on future

“No doubts” as Tottenham boss Nuno Espirito Santo remains bullish on future

Pressure builds on Nuno Espirito Santo

Arsenal put another three past Tottenham Hotspur on the way to a 3-1 victory over Nuno Espirito Santo’s side, inflicting their 3rd defeat in three games.

Nine goals conceded, and just one scored in that time, has seen the Lilywhites undo all of the work that earned Nuno manager of the month for August, and fall below their north London rivals in the table.

Duncan Castles reports that replacements are already being considered for the Portuguese:

The information I have is that Tottenham are already considering replacements for Nuno and also that this is not necessarily a unilateral process in the sense that Nuno, I’m told, is not happy with his circumstances at Tottenham. It’s not what he expected when he came into the club so there’s discontent on both sides there.

Espirito Santo claims players still believe

Speaking ahead 0f Tottenham’s Europa Conference League tie against NS Mura, Nuno remained bullish, however, and reiterated that he feels he has maintained the backing of his players, despite the poor performances:

“Yeah, totally believe. There’s no doubts about that because we work together every day, we prepare together and these moments we need to stick together.

And the belief is the first step to do things and we have it. You have to realise sometimes it’s not possible. Sometimes opponents is better than you and you have to be humble to give credit and sometimes you don’t perform. Sometimes the plan is no good.

The belief in all of us is here.”

Can Tottenham and Nuno turn it around after the next international break?
