Tottenham fans react as Gil says he is happy to adapt to any position under Nuno
Tottenham wonderkid Bryan Gil has told Wednesday’s press conference he will adapt to any position under Nuno – and Spurs fans have responded.
Gil, 20, is arguably one of Tottenham’s brightest lights under Nuno so far – since joining the club as part of a player-plus-cash deal, from Sevilla.
Fabio Paratici secured a deal that saw Spurs spend £21.6million to sign Gil, and offload Erik Lamela at the same time. He penned a contract until 2026.
Since then, he has featured seven times for Spurs. Initially being a part of the side that played in Europe and Cup games, he has gone up a level.
Gil has clocked up sizeable substitute appearances against Arsenal and Chelsea of late. He is expected to start for Spurs against Mura on Thursday.
Asked for his best position, Gil says he would adapt to any: “My favourite position is on the left, but I can adapt to any position the manager tells me.”
What are Tottenham fans saying about Gil and his comments?
Gil has enormous competition on the left flank. Son Heung-min is obviously first choice when Spurs play a front three, though Son can play centrally.
With Harry Kane struggling, Son playing centrally and bringing in Gil might allow Nuno to make a big decision – to drop England skipper Kane.
Nuno might revert to a three-man defence, the system that earned him so much success at Wolves. At least, that is what Tim Sherwood thinks.
Such a decision would leave Spurs in need of a wing-back, with Sergio Reguilon likely to fill that role. He needs to show versatility to play.
He will struggle to start in the Premier League, if he solely focuses on the left wing. Tottenham fans have reacted to Gil and his latest comments.
