A number of fans have reacted to the new revelation that Tottenham pulled out of the deal to hire Paulo Fonseca as their manager in the summer because he refused to play defensive football.
Tottenham had gambled on a more defensive approach to the game when they hired Jose Mourinho as their manager in 2019.
The Portuguese boss appeared to be leading them to a shock Premier League title win at the end of last year when Tottenham topped the standings.
However, things quickly unravelled for them, they dropped out of the top four and Mourinho was fired.
Tottenham fans were hoping the club would soon appoint a manager that plays attacking football as they had done under Mauricio Pochettino and targeted Fonseca.
However, the move collapsed after it looked all set and done and they eventually named Nuno Espirito Santo as their next boss.
Fonseca’s revelation that he would never play defensive football was posted on Twitter by Sky Sports. Here are some reactions:

Kane, Son, Gil, Lucas, Bergwjin, Lo Celso and Ndombele and they want a more "conservative approach"? Makes sense.— Sean (@ShitChatter94) September 23, 2021
