“A chef at home”- Tottenham loanee explains reasons for his failure since summer transfer

Interview: Spurs loanee Bryan Gil explains the reasons for his failure at Tottenham Hotspur

Spurs loanee Bryan Gil has provided the reasons for his failure to succeed at Tottenham Hotspur after joining them last summer. He was not able to show the same promise at N17 as he did during his time in Spain.

Tottenham had parted ways with £21.6million and Erik Lamela to finalise a transfer for Gil in a cash-plus-exchange deal with Sevilla. The 21-year-old came to England amidst much hype but could only earn one assist for his parent club from the 20 matches he has played across all competitions.

Speaking in an interview with Spanish news outlet AS (h/t Daily Mail Online), Gil has expressed that he could not cope with the intensity of the Premier League after moving to the North London side. The loanee added that he is still working to improve his physique even at Valencia to prepare himself for the eventual return to Antonio Conte’s side.

“It [the physical level of the Premier League] shows a lot, really. It is a slightly higher level of intensity. The adaptation for me was difficult. It is a very physical football, back and forth. I changed habits like eating, I had a chef at home and I gained two kilos.”

“Even so, I noticed that it was not enough for the physical level that exists in the Premier League. In Valencia, I continue to work hard on endurance, physicality, in case I have to come back, to be prepared.”

Eventual return

The Spaniard has been loaned out to the La Liga side for the remainder of the season. He could still have a future with us if Conte is impressed by the forward when he eventually returns next summer. But for that to happen, he needs to keep improving his physique, as he has mentioned in the interview.

It is good to know that the Spurs ace knows what it would take for him to gain a place in the team in the future. After all, the Italian manager also mentioned the same as the reason for the attacker’s lack of game time under his reign.

Now it is up to the Spanish international to keep improving on his build moving forward if he hopes to succeed with us. Moreover, his loan spell could do him wonders and prepare him for a career where he may have to battle for starts with established Spurs players like Steven Bergwijn, Son Heung-min, Lucas Moura, and even Dejan Kulusevski.

The Tottenham forward has certainly fared well for Jose Bordalas’ side so far, having set up an assist from six appearances across all competitions. Let’s hope that the talented prospect keeps building his endurance in this trajectory so that he will be prepared to make his case to the former Inter Milan manager at N17.

That would only help us in the end as he has the potential to become one of the superstars in the future. We already lost an established winger in Lamela and Gil was touted to be a like-for-like replacement for him in the future. There is still time for that to happen, but Gil would have to work hard to make a name for himself in England.

A football enthusiast who is madly in love with the beautiful sport.
