Dean Jones told the Football Terrace that people working with Nuno Espirito Santo at Tottenham are already ‘reasonably excited’ as to what he’s bringing to the table.
Nuno is in the early stages of his Tottenham tenure, and at this moment in time, he’s going along in a pretty healthy fashion.
One cloud that will always be over Nuno’s head when he is in the Spurs dugout is the claim that he wasn’t Daniel Levy or Fabio Paratici’s first choice.
But ‘in this early time’ of his Spurs reign, there seems to be some positive vibes coming out about Nuno, according to Jones.
“People that have been working with him in this early time at Tottenham,” said Jones.
“They are pretty optimistic and reasonably excited about what he may be able to offer the club and how he’s going to lead them forward.
“He’s going to be very flexible tactically. He’s very good at managing individuals and the collective. He can adapt to situations.
“He has the mentality where he can inspire key victories in big moments. It might not be a bad thing that people aren’t expecting big things from him.”
Nuno guided Wolves to Europe for consecutive seasons before Raul Jimenez’s unfortunate head injury last November completely curtailed Wolves’ 2020/21 campaign.
That was perhaps the only blip – the last six months of the last campaign – of Nuno’s four years at Molinuex.
And if the former goalkeeper can bring some of that magic to Hotspur Way then supporters will love him for it.
Added with quality, it does seem as though the atmosphere needs to change around the place and Nuno needs to perhaps channel the days of Mauricio Pochettino and bring a more family feel to proceedings.
Going off his days off Wolves, it does seem as though he has that quality in his locker also.
