Just five games into the Premier League season, plenty of Tottenham fans are beginning to express their discontent with Nuno Espirito Santo.

Spurs have won three of those games – losing the other two – but have worryingly scored just three goals.

As of September 14th, Brighton glovesman Robert Sanchez had created the same amount of clear-cut chances as Tottenham with one (WhoScored).

Tottenham fans are crying out for a manager who will ‘dare to do’ – after a lengthy recruitment process this summer, he may have been right under their nose all along.

Tottenham should’ve hired Erik ten Hag

One man interviewed by Daniel Levy in addition to Nuno was Ajax boss Erik ten Hag.

According to Voetbal, the Dutchman left Tottenham baffled with his staff choices, while his English also wasn’t too good.

However, there are now plenty of signs which suggest he would’ve been a great fit for Spurs.

Firstly, his side cannot stop scoring. Ajax have netted 27 goals in just six Eredivisie games this season, conceding just one.

Ajax have won five of those games – drawing the other – to sit top of the table, one point ahead of PSV Eindhoven.

The Tottenham way

Supporters are desperate to see attacking football return to N17, and in Ten Hag, there’s a manager who could’ve delivered that.

The Dutchman uses a 4-3-3 system which can also switch into a 4-2-3-1, a formation not too dissimilar to how Tottenham have played in recent times.

In that respect, his arrival wouldn’t have shaken things up too much from a footballing aspect.

In our view, Levy was wrong to ignore Ten Hag over the summer.

Hopefully, Nuno can start to get fans off their seats, or the decision to ignore the Ajax boss will look even worse as time goes on.
