Andre Villas-Boas is in danger of being sacked after the huge defeat that the Spurs suffered in their previous League game against Manchester City. City won that game by 6-0.
Yes, it was an away game for the Spurs, but, nobody had expected them to be thrashed in that manner. It would have been quite embarrassing for their fans.
Villa-Boas had spent a lot of bucks during the pre-season transfer window to strengthen his squad, but, his new signings have not managed to do anything significant so far in the ongoing season and according to the reports, the Tottenham board is running out of patience now.
After suffering that humiliating defeat against City, the Spurs have now drifted down to no. 9 in the league points table. That was their 4th defeat in the ongoing league. Now, there is a gap of 8 points between them and the table toppers Arsenal.
Tottenham’s performance has deteriorated quite a lot this month. In their last 3 League games, they haven’t found the back of the net even a single time.
In the press conference after that match against City, Villas-Boas had no hesitation in admitting that the performance level of his team in the game was extremely poor.
The Tottenham boss said, “It’s really an embarrassing situation for all of us. We did not get a single thing right. To have 6 goals scored against you with such a defence, it’s a shame.”
“We got trailed pretty early in the game and we fell apart after that. Now, all we can do is to ensure that we come back fighting next game.”
Tottenham’s next game is a Europa League encounter against Tromso IL. That game will be played at Alfheim Stadion on Thursday.
