TOTTENHAM SACK NUNO ESPIRITO SANTO AFTER FOUR MONTH IN CHARGE

Tottenham have sacked Nuno Espirito Santo after only four months in charge of the club.

Spurs chairman Daniel Levy held crisis talks yesterday following Saturday’s 3-0 defeat to Manchester United and has dismissed Nuno, who was appointed as Jose Mourinho’s successor after a protracted search this summer.

Levy, who was already worried about recent results and performances, was furious was the manner of the United defeat and has decided make a change with Tottenham eighth in the Premier League.

A short statement on the club’s website confirmed the sacking: “The Club can today announce that Nuno Espírito Santo and his coaching staff Ian Cathro, Rui Barbosa and Antonio Dias have been relieved of their duties.

“A further coaching update will follow in due course.”

Spurs will now begin a search to replace Nuno, with Porto manager Sergio Conceicao and Paulo Fonseca being considered as potential candidates. Antonio Conte is being strongly linked with the job in Italy.

Nuno was appointed on a two-year contract in June. He departs after just 124 days and 17 games in charge with Spurs 10 points behind leaders Chelsea.

“I know how much Nuno and his coaching staff wanted to succeed and I regret that we have had to take this decision,” said Spurs’ managing director Fabio Paratici.

“Nuno is a true gentleman and will always be welcome here. We should like to thank him and his coaching staff and wish them well for the future.”

His exit makes Nuno’s the shortest tenure of Levy’s ten permanent appointments at Tottenham.

Tottenham supporters sang “You don’t know what you’re doing” at the former Wolves boss as the atmosphere turned toxic during Saturday’s defeat by United and Levy has lost faith in him.
