Fonseca was chucked out of the Spurs running as he was too attack minded. He achieved nothing of note at Roma.

He was spouting in some interview some rubbish about how attacking football is his way and he will attack against everyone and won't defend  on the edge of the box against City etc...

He sounds like a complete bluffer ala Villas Boas.
