Tottenham could find themselves battling relegation under Paulo Fonseca in the upcoming Premier League season, warns former player Paul Stewart.
Chairman Daniel Levy has turned to the former AS Roma boss after missing out on a host of other targets, though the club’s manager situation is unlikely to be the only thing that has given him a headache recently.
Harry Kane’s future at Tottenham also remains in doubt, adding to this chaotic period for the north London outfit.
Should Spurs try to sign Grealish again?
We will if we're a big club
Why would he want to join us?
All in all, Stewart is worried about what lies ahead for his former side. He told TT in an exclusive interview:
“They could find themselves maybe even battling relegation if they don’t watch or mind how they go about it because it’s not an easy league. Every week you come up against a team that’s going to give everything.
“Spurs could find themselves in a dog-fight.”
Indeed, the 2020/21 campaign could end up being a very challenging one for Tottenham and their new manager.
However, if Spurs are able to keep hold of Kane, they should be able to avoid a complete catastrophe and at least challenge for something, be it a Champions League place or the League Cup again.
When you have a forward who can create and score goals like the England captain, as Tottenham have shown in recent years, you’re likely to at least be in the conversation.
