LONDON: Tottenham have confirmed the team has sacked its manager, Nuno Espirito Santo and also his coaching staff after their erratic performances in the English Premier League (EPL).
Spurs lost 3-0 at the hands of Manchester United on Saturday – their fifth defeat in 10 league games – and were ridiculed by fans who cheered ‘you don’t know what you’re doing.’
Tottenham Football Director Fabio Paratici in a statement said ‘I know how much Nuno and his coaching staff want to succeed and I regret when we had to make this decision.
“Nuno is a real gentleman and will always be welcome here. We would like to thank him and his coaching staff and wish them success in the future.”
A statement on the new coaching staff is expected to be announced as soon as possible.
Nuno, who is also a former Wolves manager, was appointed Spurs’ new boss in June to replace Jose Mourinho.
He led Wolves to the EPL in 2018 from the Championship League and guided his team to a two-season finish in seventh in their first two seasons before finishing 13th last season.
Tottenham are a team that often finish in the top four under Mauricio Pochettino – advancing to the 2019 Champions League final but failing to win any trophies since 2008.
