Nuno Espirito Santo is keeping his fingers crossed over a player
Yes, Nuno Espirito Santo is getting good signals from Real Madrid that they don’t want Sergio Reguilon back for this season. According to my contacts, Carlo Ancelotti is quite happy for the youngster to stay another season at Tottenham. However, that doesn’t mean they won’t want him back at a later date. Real Madrid have an option to repurchase him either this summer or next, which would see the club net a profit of £15million as part of an agreement in the original deal that took him to Tottenham last year.
When Reguilon came to the club, he was very notable when he first played for us; showing determination, pace and ability at the highest level. Delivering accurate crosses in the oppositions goalkeeping area, however, his performance suddenly dropped off considerably towards the end of last season.
Reguilon was then left out of Spain’s Euro 2022 squad because of his poor form. If he went back to Madrid, he could just languish at the club, while at Tottenham, given the opportunity, he could bounce back. A new coach might work wonders with him.
Under Mourinho, at least at the beginning and while at the top of the Premier League, Reguilon was in brilliant form. Still, when his boss started to show signs of losing things in the dressing room (and on the pitch), he also began to show signs of not performing to his capabilities and was dropped (at least for some matches). But he is a good enough player to turn it all around, providing that Nuno Espirito Santo shows confidence in him.
Hopefully, Nuno will learn the lessons of Mourinho’s failures and manage the team in a way that gives players support and belief.
At the gym and around where I live, people ask me what I think of our new manager. Will he be any good? And I always say the same thing, it doesn’t matter who our manager (coach) is, the problem is Levy. Yes, he is a great businessman, just look what he has done to our ground and other areas (our youth academy is an excellent example), but he knows nothing about being a football club chairman (or hasn’t shown what It takes up to now). And it will always be the same until Levy releases his grip on the purse strings and allows the managers to manage and not keep interfering. But whatever we think of Levy and his hawkish grip on the club, we all should get behind our new coach. After all, collectively, we are Spurs!
Up the Spurs!
All the best, Glenn
