Tottenham Hotspur has announced the sacking of club manager Nuno Espírito Santo after only four months in charge with the club announcing that his coaching staff consisting of Ian Cathro, Rui Barbosa, and Antonio Dias too have been relieved from duty with immediate effect.
In an official announcement Fabio Paratici, managing director of football at Tottenham said, “I know how much Nuno and his coaching staff wanted to succeed and I regret that we have had to take this decision. 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.”
Tottenham has won five and lost five of their 10 Premier League games while managing to find goals only nine times, and this performance hasn’t impressed the board, who post their dismal 3-0 loss to Manchester United held internal talks and decided to sack Nuno Espírito Santo.
With Nuno Espírito Santo sacked, Antonio Conte’s name has once again come upfront with the post as Spurs manager. The Italian boss was earlier linked to the job during the summer, but the club chose to appoint the Portuguese Nuno, who struggled to make an impact.
