Tottenham manager Nuno Espirito Santo has revealed his concern about new signing Bryan Gil after he struggled in the Europa Conference League clash on Thursday. The Portuguese has also given an update on Harry Kane’s situation.
Spurs boss Nuno takes on former club Wolves on Sunday following on from the brilliant 1-0 win over Manchester City last weekend.
However, the mood in the camp may well have been dampened by a bitterly disappointing 1-0 defeat to Pacos de Ferreira on Thursday evening.
Nuno named a much changed side for the trip to Portugal, opting to leave most of his first-team stars in England.
New signing Bryan Gil was handed his first start, and despite beginning brightly, the Spaniard failed to make much of an impact.

And Nuno admitted that he is still searching for the right place to slot the attacking-midfielder into his side.
“I think Bryan started well, but that’s my responsibility.
“I think we still have to find the right position for him and give him exact tasks.
“In this game he changed two times his position and it’s not the best way to go to improve a player.”

England striker Kane was also left in England while talk of a transfer away from north London rumbles on.
But Nuno appeared confident he would be part of the main group for the preparations to face Wolves on Sunday.
“He trained today,” Nuno said of Kane. “He trained with the group of players that stayed in England.
“He trained well and he is going to train tomorrow and when we return he will join all the players and work as the group and Harry in it.
Nuno also defended his decision to name a youthful side for the first leg clash against Pacos de Ferreira.
Nile John and Dane Scarlett made their first senior starts, while J’Neil Bennett and Maksim Paskotsi came on for their Spurs debuts.
“No, not at all. The decision was made, was time to think,” said Nuno.
“I would decide exactly the same because the main question is to use the squad as we have a long way to go and we need all the players involved.”
