Football London reporter Alasdair Gold claims Fabio Paratici was left ‘angry’ by a moment in the first, as Tottenham edged past Wolves. Nuno Espirito Santo returned to Molineux to beat his old side. But a moment during the 1-0 win angered Paratici – involving Tottenham ace Oliver Skipp.
Dele Alli won, and then scored a penalty early on after a gorgeous pass from Sergio Reguilon saw Jose Sa bring Dele down. He got up and sent the Portuguese goalkeeper the wrong way. A second successive win for Nuno has seen him get off to the perfect start in the Premier League.
A report from Football London’s Gold, though, claims Paratici was angry in the first half. Near the touchline, it appeared that Skipp had timed a tackle on reported Spurs target Adama Traore perfectly. But referee Stuart Attwell booked Skipp. Gold reports that Paratici was not happy.
“Paratici, who was in the perfect position right in front of the tackle, was not impressed at all and leapt from his seat to give his views on the referee’s decision,” Gold said, on Paratici’s reaction during the game. “He was not impressed at all and neither were the Tottenham players.”
Tottenham are a new-look side this season. A new manager, a new transfer strategy, a new formation, new positions – and perhaps no Harry Kane. Dele is a prime example, playing as a box-to-box midfielder and it is working well. Playing much more attacking, but on the counter, there is optimism.
Paratici has flexed his muscles, bringing in Pierluigi Gollini, Cristian Romero and Bryan Gil. Pape Sarr is incoming. All of these ingredients are taking Spurs forward and there are signs that it is the first era since Mauricio Pochettino’s golden era in which Spurs could rediscover their best.
