Speaking to Football Insider, a Tottenham Hotspur source has revealed a big blow for manager Nuno Espirito Santo in a behind-the-scenes Hotspur Way reveal.
The Lowdown: Nuno facing sack pressure…
Despite clinching August’s Premier League Manager of the Month award, even managing to beat champions Man City on the opening day, Nuno is now at the centre of mounting pressure over his job.
Indeed, a dismal run of results in September, where they lost in convincing fashion to London rivals Crystal Palace, Chelsea and Arsenal, has really turned up the heat.
So much so, a Spurs source has now leaked some damning information involving Nuno and senior players in what could be a big blow for the Portuguese.
The Latest: Source leaks damning Hotspur Way reveal…
As per the N17 source, speaking to FI, Nuno now has ‘few allies’ in the Spurs dressing room with senior players ‘unhappy’ over his style of management.
It is claimed that ‘high profile’ players are ‘unimpressed’ with the former Wolves boss and his training methods/communication at Hotspur Way.
Indeed, there’s even a suggestion by the source that the prospect of a dressing room mutiny is very real just four months into his role.
The Verdict: Blow for Nuno…
Signed on a two-year contract by chairman Daniel Levy after failed talks for the likes of Mauricio Pochettino and Antonio Conte, it’s safe to say Nuno wasn’t exactly Tottenham’s first choice for the job.
As the Premier League coach seeks to elevate his own career with a role as prestigious as the Spurs job, it appears he is now already in real danger of an uphill battle to keep it as this behind-scenes claim drops.
