Writing for football.london, reliable Tottenham Hotspur correspondent Alasdair Gold has made a claim involving Nuno Espirito Santo and promising young defender Joe Rodon.
The Lowdown: Big season ahead…
As Nuno prepares for his first full season at the Tottenham helm after signing a two-year deal, the Portuguese has the mountainous task of restoring pride in the club after a summer of shambles.
Tottenham took over two months to appoint a new boss, holding successive managerial talks with the likes of Mauricio Pochettino, Antonio Conte, Paulo Fonseca and Gennaro Gattuso (BBC).
Now the Lilywhites can finally focus on how they approach next season, with Gold revealing who Nuno may select more far more often over 2021/2022.
The Latest: Gold drops Rodon claim…
Writing for football.london, Gold has claimed that the new Tottenham manager could turn to Rodon next season as more of a mainstay in the team.
Indeed, the Portuguese is now ‘expected’ to make ‘much more use’ of the Welshman, especially after an impressive Euro 2020 campaign for his country.
It is believed that the 23-year-old impressed plenty of people behind the scenes at Spurs during his debut season after he had to make the most of very limited game time.
Rodon could also return for pre-season training slightly earlier than expected in order to get a head start on pre-season training under Nuno.
The Verdict: Good news…
The starlet certainly impressed at points over 2020/2021 and he arguably displayed better form at times than the likes of Eric Dier and Davinson Sanchez.
Wales Online reporter Ian Mitchelmore has waxed lyrical over the ‘special player‘ for his performances at international level and there is no reason he can’t replicate it for Spurs.
In what could be a major summer revamp for Tottenham at the back, it appears Rodon could have a larger role to play next season.
