There’s been a fair bit of talk about players ‘rotting’ at White Hart Lane next season and comments from Gio dos Santos this week might just lead to that sort of situation.
Gio has incurred the displeasure of head coach Andre Villas-Boas by publicly stating that he will not be renewing his contract with Spurs when it runs out in 12 months time.
“I am not sure what Gio’s thought process was, coming out with a statement like that,” said AVB.
“The player is contracted to the club. We respect him and are counting on him to return to club duty.
“Then we will make a decision that is best for the club.”
Earlier this month, Gio stated that he wouldn’t be pushing for a move this summer and there are hints in this story that he is another player with a clean slate who could just have one last chance to prove himself as a Spurs player.
While few of us doubt his quality, could the Mexican ever change his attitude to the extent needed to establish a future at the club?
