'Oh no': Tottenham fans are already worried by what they're hearing from one of their summer signings
Some Tottenham Hotspur fans are in disagreement with Nuno’s apparent plan to help Byran Gil put on muscle.
Gil revealed to Football London at a press conference yesterday that he has been asked to put on weight by the Tottenham boss, as he looks to make the transition to English football.
He said: “I have been requested to gain some weight and to improve my physical condition and learn English. I am focusing on that and adapting.”
Gil certainly is a slender build right now, and Nuno clearly wants him to improve physically to compete in the Premier League.
However, many Tottenham fans have been impressed with what they have seen so far.
Gil’s ability to operate in tight spaces, combined with his agility, make him a difficult opponent to mark.
And there are some fears that be stacking muscle, Gil could lose the very assets which make him such an exciting prospect.
Credit in the bank
Gil actually was one Tottenham player who came out of the North London derby with some credit.
Despite his lack of physical statute, the youngster was not afraid to get stuck in, and showed ability in possession after coming off the bench.
Gil could get another chance to catch the eye for Spurs later this evening.
Tottenham are in action in the Conference League later, and the Spaniard has been regularly utilised in the competition to date.
