Levy to discuss Santo's future

Daniel Levy and Fabio Paratici are “holding talks” to discuss the “possible dismissal” of Tottenham Hotspur boss Nuno Espirito Santo, according to reports.

The former Wolves head coach was appointed as Jose Mourinho’s successor at Tottenham in June.

The likes of Paulo Fonseca and Gennaro Gattuso were linked with the job before Santo was appointed.

Spurs must face up to the reality of how badly they’re being managed

Spurs currently sit eighth in the Premier League. They have five wins and five defeats so far this term.

Last time out, they were beaten 3-0 by Manchester United at The Tottenham Hotspur Stadium. They did not register a single shot on target against Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s men.

In the aftermath of this result, The Athletic are reporting that Levy and Paratici (Spurs’ managing director) are discussing the “possible dismissal” of Santo.

The Telegraph back up this report. They state that discussions have taken place to decide whether Spurs should make an “immediate change”.

Elsewhere, Teddy Sheringham has suggested that Harry Kane is not “leading by example” for Tottenham.

Kane was keen to leave Spurs during the summer. Man City were interested in him but they chose not to meet the forward’s price.

The Englishman has struggled in the Premier League this term as he has one goal from his nine games.

Sheringham said: “He was probably given assurances that he could leave.

“Those assurances haven’t been stuck to and it looks like Kane has the hump.

“He needs to change that around and realise he is still the Tottenham vice-captain and still a Tottenham player and do better.

“I think it’s a really tough time for Tottenham. When you have a striker who is also the vice-captain like Harry Kane. He leads by example rather than telling everyone what to do.

“That’s a very different scenario. They need a leader at the back or in midfield to dominate and dictate and tell people what they’re doing wrong.

“I’m really not a lover of a centre-forward being the captain and he’s not performing at the best of his capabilities at the moment, so he’s not even leading by example.”
