Gary Neville has blasted “weak-minded” Tottenham Hotspur, adding that Mauricio Pochettino needs to be given two or three years to turn around the north London club.

Spurs succumbed to their fourth Premier League defeat of the season on Sunday despite Emmanuel Adebayor giving the home side an early first-half lead.

It is what I think of Tottemham historically. Never ready, weak up here [head], not alert

Sammy Ameobi scored within six seconds of the restart before Ayoze Perez netted the winner, helping Newcastle United to move off the bottom of the table.

And United legend Neville pointed out the basic mistakes made by Spurs for Ameobi’s goal, underlining the amount of work Pochettino needs to do at the club.

“You talk about typical Tottenham. He has got to affect the culture. It runs through the club,” Neville said on Sky Sports’s Monday Night Football.

“It is what I think of Tottemham historically. Never ready, weak up here [head], not alert. They have to change that culture.

“Pochettino needs to be given two or three years to get rid of that attitude.”
