Tottenham fans react as Nuno Espirito Santo reportedly set to hand out second chance

A report from Eurosport claims that Tottenham player Harry Winks will be given another chance by new manager Nuno Espirito Santo. Winks struggled to have an impact at Tottenham last season, under Jose Mourinho. Tottenham fans have given their verdicts on the decision regarding Winks.

Winks, 25, was handed just 15 Premier League appearances last term with the majority of his game time coming in the cup competitions. The 10-time England international has fallen down the pecking order after the arrival of Pierre-Emile Hojbjerg. It has seen Winks also generate some interest.

The Telegraph claim that Aston Villa are looking at Winks, who has played 173 times in all competitions for boyhood club Spurs. The midfielder is now in the final three years of his contract at Spurs, but Eurosport say Nuno will give him another chance. Instead of selling him, Winks will be used.

It remains to be seen if Nuno will even play a similar formation to the one Jose Mourinho – or Mauricio Pochettino – did. Nuno likes using two strikers up top in a 4-4-2 or a 3-5-2. It could reduce the chances Winks gets. Tottenham fans have reacted to the report regarding Winks.
