Spurs were the better team deluded Nuno claims

Spurs manager Nuno Espirito Santo claims Tottenham were the ‘better team’ in their Sunday defeat to West Ham.

Nuno told Sky Sports: “We were the better team, honestly. I think we controlled the game, we had chances. We had possession. West Ham are a good team but they only created chances on counter-attacks and set-pieces. We played better, but this is football. The last pass was there but we need to be more aggressive in our offensive game. We controlled the game. The whole game was under control. The table is a reference but doesn’t guide us. We have to improve our character as a team, our wish to want to achieve a better team game. We need to work on that.”

His incredible comments have been met with anger by Spurs and West Ham fans alike who think he is deluded.
Tottenham have failed to win any of their last four London derbies and looked toothless on Sunday and not the next team by a long way.

Nuno is already at the risk of getting sacked by Tottenham Hotspur. The new manager might not have the time he needs to turn things around at the club.

Cut back to the end of August and Spurs were flying high. They won their opening three games while conceding zero goals meaning that they were top of the league. There was a renewed optimism amongst their own fans after the last season which was disastrous for them. They have now fallen down to sixth place.

  1. I quite liked Nuno when he was at Wolves but going to Spuds seems to turn people into deluded losers . Spuds were awful against one of the worst Hammers shows of the season . .I would have Son at The London Stadium in a blink but you can keep the rest ..

  2. I also liked Nuno, but any spuds connection was always gonna change that. The reason why he said what he said, was probably more for Levy’s ears than anyone else’s, as he must have a sneaking suspicion regarding what happens next.
    I didn’t get the feeling that he was a planned appointment or even a good fit at the spuds, but… Long may Levy continue to reign at the spuds and remain an agent of destruction.
    Nuno would’ve been the type of manager welcomed with open arms to the West Ham of the past. But we now have Moyes who has given us much more than flair with tricks and flicks. He has given us all of that along with work ethic, drive, resilience and a never say die attitude… The New West Ham Way, and I’m loving it!
