Alasdair Gold reveals there are concerns over fitness levels of Spurs squad


Football.London’s Alasdair Gold has revealed that there are concerns at Tottenham Hotspur over the squad’s fitness levels.

Reports had previously indicated that the players were unhappy with Mourinho’s training methods, with some feeling that they were not being worked hard enough by the Portuguese coach and his staff.

If Gold is to be believed, even though Tottenham were one of the fittest squads in the Premier League under Mauricio Pochettino, there are concerns over the players’ current fitness levels.

He claims that some believe the numerous mistakes that players have made over the last few months have been a result of physical and mental tiredness.

Gold also goes on to claim that Spurs are now looking for a progressive, attack-minded head coach who favours possession-based football and would adopt cutting edge techniques like Pochettino did.

However, the journalist reveals that the club’s list of potential managerial targets is a fairly long one at the moment, with Spurs yet to narrow down their chase to a few names.

Going by the profile of head coach Levy is reportedly after, it seems like an admission from the Tottenham chairman that he was too hasty in his decision to sack Pochettino. Unfortunately for Spurs and Levy, there do not seem to be any outstanding candidates for the job at the moment now that Nagelsmann is on his way to Bayern.

Have something to tell us about this article?


  1. Not winning away for 9 months was appalling, but Pochettino deserved at least to see out that season. Steering us through 1.5 years at Wembley, keeping us in CL, was incredible. Mourinho didn’t get us into CL either and was his playing style ever going to be desirable to watch? Levy has made some awful decisions in his time. Villas Boas was another bad one, when we had the excellent Harry Redknapp. Any manager who has the job a long time has a real advantage. This often leads to success. Chopping and changing and you keep needing time for rebuilds. Poch knew our squad was older and needed a bigger spend. Aurier and Doherty are poor right backs. Centre backs are very week. Wasted money on Sessegnon who we have no room for. Still no permanent striker. It’s another busy window ahead and not much cash to spend either.
