Vega: Tottenham players should take more responsibility

Mon 01 November 2021 | 16:25

The Spurs players’ attitude has not impressed Ramon Vega, insisting more commitment is expected of them.

According to

Ramon Vega



players should take more responsibility following the dismissal of

Nuno Espirito Santo

on Monday.

Nuno was sacked after four months of being a coach at Tottenham after their thumping 3-0 loss at the hands of

Manchester United

on Saturday, and

Antonio Conte

emerges as a potential successor for the former Wolves boss.

Tottenham failed to find the target against the Red Devils and they sit eighth in the Premier League table, having won five matches and lost five so far.

During an interview with BBC Radio 5 Live, the ex-Tottenham defender Vega revealed that the players’ attitudes are not acceptable, and he also questioned the club’s lack of persistence in bringing Conte in.


The players here have to take responsibility with the way they are playing,"

Vega said.

"I'm a little bit unhappy with how the players are really showing their attitude and willingness to play for the club.

"It's irrelevant if it's Nuno or any other manager there. You're playing for the club, you get paid by the club and you need to show some commitment and that's not what I've seen from these players so far.

"My understanding at the moment is that Antonio Conte is the frontrunner to be appointed. But my question is why was he not given what he wanted in the summer instead of wasting time and potentially [damaging the] reputation of a very good manager, because Nuno is a very good manager but he did not have the time or the chance to really improve the team.

"So, why suddenly now does Conte have the facilities that Tottenham can give him and not in the summer?"

Nuno has only been in charge for 10 matches which is the lowest when it comes to permanent managers at the club.

Vega also commented on the transfer speculations regarding

Harry Kane

, who has attracted the attention of Manchester City, and he thinks that it had a role in Spurs’ stuttering start to the season.


The Harry Kane scenario, this is exactly the reason why we are here now today,

" the former Switzerland international added.

"There's no doubt the dressing room went apart and there was unhappiness and I think that when the players don't click together or are not playing as a team you will see that on the pitch.

"From my point of view the Kane saga was a disaster for the club. But there is a responsibility as a player - how he actually acted at that time he didn't act professionally. At the same time you have to play him now, there's not even a question mark."
