Tottenham Hotspur at the moment, are a mess. Harry Kane looks likely to leave in the summer. The club have not won a trophy since 2013. They are still in the hunt for a manager since sacking Jose Mourinho. They sit 7th in the league. Things need to change.
Club reporter Alasdair Gold has said some words about Spurs’ situation. “The mistakes made [against Leeds] and the defensive instability in the team were what cost them, and they are problems that existed long before his reign and that of Mourinho.”
“On top of that the fitness of the players was once again questionable as they tried to chase the game late on. The number of games can no longer be used as an excuse with the time in between matches now.”
The real question is, where do Tottenham go from here? They will have the majority of the summer to clear deadwood out of the club, like Eric Dier, Serge Aurier and more. Also, to look for a manager, who will bring a project – for the long term. For Spurs to be successful, they must get the next manager appointment correct. According to many sources, that could be Brighton manager, Graham Potter.
On the manager situation at Spurs, Gold said: “Mason is in the infancy of his career as a manager and he will continue his education at the club next season, whether it is in his previous academy role or in the coaching set-up of the next head coach.
“Spurs need someone new to arrive this summer, grab hold of the club and give it a damn good shake.”
“Too many players have been sleepwalking through three different managerial reigns and the squad is in desperate need of an overhaul across the pitch.”
There is also the concerning case of Gareth Bale and his future at Tottenham, even if he is just on loan. With Gold saying, “There is little doubt that Bale still has incredible ability and can make a difference in big moments, but his consistency will be dictated by his fitness and increasingly his age.”
Apparently, Spurs have first choice to re-loan Bale for next season, where they would again have to pay 40% of his massive wages.
It remains to be seen whether Bale has proved his worth to stay at Tottenham for another reason, regardless, his situation is just one of many issues surrounding Tottenham these days.
