Tottenham Hotspur have suffered a terrible start to the season, with Mauricio Pochettino’s side struggling for form.

Guillem Balague has told BBC Sport that he has heard Tottenham Hotspur’s players are not all ‘unhappy’, as has been reported.

Spurs have been in poor form since the start of the season, with their performances a big cause for concern.

Tottenham lost 7-2 to Bayern Munich and 3-0 to Brighton & Hove Albion in their last two outings, with the commitment of the side called into question after both defeats.

Tottenham are in a situation where a number of players in their squad are facing uncertain futures.

And it has been reported that many Spurs players are unhappy at the club by some publications.

However, Balague insists that although some discontent does exist, the situation isn’t as bad as some media sources have made out.

He said: “I am told that the constant stories being published that players are unhappy are not totally or all true, but discontent exists.

“The footballers are receiving more analysis than ever and experience different types of training, but the main problem, as is usual in these moments of difficulties, is that everyone is looking for a scapegoat. In truth, everyone and every level at the club must take some share of the responsibility.”

The international break arguably came at a good time for Spurs, as it gave everyone at the club a chance to refresh after what has been an awful start to the campaign.

All is not lost at Tottenham, as they are still only three points adrift of the top four, despite their poor start, but a big improvement will be needed if they are to climb the table.

Spurs are next in action with a match against Watford at the weekend, and they are heavy favourites to pick up the three points.
