The Athletic have revealed there are various issues on the minds of Tottenham Hotspur players.
Will this be Mauricio Pochettino's last season at Tottenham?
They reportedly feel ‘untrusted, overworked, underpaid’ while they also feel jealous about Daniel Levy’s salary and are annoyed about Mauricio Pochettino’s mood swings.
All these niggling problems may seem like something out of some kind of soap opera, but this is supposedly the reality of life at Hotspur Way:

The players clearly feel aggrieved about their treatment so far this season, but they are not getting any sympathy from the club’s supporters.
This is especially the case when it is considered they have lost four of their last five games, as per TransferMarkt, having lost 2-1 against Leicester City, suffered defeat on penalties by Colchester United and been on the end of a 7-2 humiliation at the hands of Bayern Munich before being beaten 3-0 by Brighton & Hove Albion.
Many fans have said they need to get on with things when they have a similar feeling in their work, so feel the players should too.
A selection of Twitter reaction to the complaints, including posts from unsympathetic Spurs fans, can be seen below:
Jealous of the Levy’s salary, that’s new.
