Tottenham Sack Coach Nuno Espirito Santo As Conte Is Set To Step In

Nuno Espirito Santo has been sacked as Tottenham manager, the Premier League club has confirmed.

Just four months after being appointed, the decision has been taken to end the Portuguese’s tenure following a poor run of results.

Nuno was appointed permanent successor to Jose Mourinho in June, with Spurs handing him an initial two-year contract.

That agreement has been terminated early in the wake of the 3-0 home defeat to Manchester United, which leaves the north London outfit ten points adrift of Premier League leaders Chelsea after ten games.

The club will have to pay him 14 million pounds in order to terminate his contract, working out at 1.4 million pounds per Premier League game, or 1.75 million pounds per win across all competitions.

An announcement on Spurs’ website confirmed Nuno, along with coaching staff Ian Cathro, Rui Barbosa and Antonio Dias, have all been relieved of their duties.

It read:

“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.”

Fabio Paratici, Managing Director, Football, 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.”

It has already been reported that Spurs have contacted Conte again, with Paratici eager to bring in his compatriot to steady the ship having previously worked with him at Juventus.
