Chris Sutton has taken to Twitter to react to what Nuno Espirito Santo has said about Spurs training sessions ahead of today’s North London derby.
Tottenham boss has admitted that he doesn’t count the number of headers from his players in training.
The former English player and Wolves coach wrote about it yesterday on Twitter.
This is really disappointing and dangerous. Maybe it would be good if Nuno visited former players suffering from Dementia in the latter stages of their condition. It may change his and Spurs thinking.👇 https://t.co/C5BsmseS3O

Previously Nuno has told the following.
“I’m concerned with the situation of dementia and what heading the ball can cause. It’s a big concern for us but it’s part of the game. Honestly, I will not lie to you.
“I don’t count how many times our players head the ball. Maybe I will get myself in trouble for this. But football is jumping, heading. It’s part of the game,” told the Lilywhites’ manager.
According to The Guardian, players are to be limited to 10 higher force headers a week in training.
The reason to this is that heading the ball could lead to health risks, including dementia.
