Levy to blame as Tottenham source issues dressing room unrest claim - Campbell
Tottenham manager Nuno Espirito Santo must hold crisis talks with his “unhappy” players or get rid of them, according to Kevin Campbell.
The former Premier League striker, speaking exclusively to Football Insider, said the 47-year-old “needs to act now” before the situation spirals beyond repair.
Espirito Santo is under intense scrutiny in north London after a dismal run of results in September.
A Spurs source has told Football Insider (October 11th) that senior players are “unimpressed” and “unhappy” with Espirito Santo’s training methods and communication.
A dressing room mutiny could be on the cards as individuals turn against the ex-Wolves man just four months into his reign.
Campbell suggested Tottenham chairman Daniel Levy was the root cause of the unrest behind the scenes.

“Nuno can turn it around but he needs to act now,” he told Football Insider‘s Dylan Childs.
“He needs to found out which players have a problem. Once you work out who they are, you either sit down with them and clear the air or you get rid of them.
“If you have people against you in the dressing room, you are not going to move forward properly.
“It was always going to happen. It all comes down to the chairman at the end of the day. That is who the buck stops with. He has made some questionable, hard-faced decisions.
“At the end of the day though, these guys are footballers. They have got to do their job. The players are too powerful now. It is crazy.”
