Nuno Espirito Santo will make it a priority to get the Tottenham squad ‘back into peak physical shape’ during pre-season, according to The Athletic.
The newly-appointed head coach will welcome back the majority of the squad on Monday, while others are still playing at Euro 2020 and the Copa America.
And The Athletic claims fitness will be the first thing on the agenda, something the players are said to be happy about.
The report suggests the squad put their poor performances last season partly down to Jose Mourinho’s neglectful approach to the physical side of things.
But those players not involved at international tournaments have apparently been working on their fitness in recent weeks, and that will continue at the training ground.
Paratici is believed to be in agreement with Nuno when it comes to making fitness a priority, so it’s good to know everybody is signing from the same hymn sheet.
It may also be a good way for Nuno and Paratici to identify players who are not on the same page, potentially putting those members of the squad up for sale.
