Speculation surrounding Tottenham this season has become tiring. Three managers and no director of football, plus the contract of our best player seemingly being allowed to be run down, all add up to the feeling that the club is drifting. The official Twitter feed for Spurs is routinely carnage, with a hardcore of fans just posting an unrelenting barrage of Levy Out-themed images and GIFs, irrespective of the subject posted by the club.
This week, it emerged that Dejan Kulusevski had told a friend at another club that a week before Conte was fired that the players’ attitude needed changing, not the manager. It now emerges from a source close to the club talking to the Boy Hotspur’s Substack, that the Swede may not be in the club’s plans for next season. The 23-year-old is currently on loan at Spurs, without an obligation to buy.
This season, Kulu has contributed just two goals and 6 assists.
I take the view that Kulusevski is a good player, but not a great one. Tottenham has made too many blunders in the transfer market, as witnessed by having so many senior players on loan. It isn’t normal for any top-flight club to have so many experienced players playing for other clubs. Tanguy Ndombele, Harry Winks, Giovani Lo Celso, Joe Rodon, and Sergio Reguilon have all been found wanting by the Lilywhites. Perhaps fine-tuning the recruitment process at the club is a priority?
The sooner a new coach who has control over incomings and outgoings is appointed, the better for all concerned.
