Now, according to the British press, the main candidate to become the new manager is Nuno Espírito Santo, who recently left his post at the Wolverhampton from Premier League. The born in Sao Tome and Principe The 47-year-old appears as the main alternative, despite the fact that a large number of Spurs fans do not want him in office.
The Tottenham board of directors does not rest and is still looking for a new coach after the departure of José Mourinho, the now coach of Roma in Italy. After not having fruitful conversations with candidates like Antonio Conte, Paulo Fonseca and Gennaro Gattuso, the main candidate is Nuno Espirito Santo, who left his post at the Wolves in mid-May. So far, Ryan Mason was serving as manager on an interim basis.
His campaign in Wolves
Nuno, 47, left the Wolves after 4 seasons, where he collected 55.95% of the points in 199 games directed (95 wins, 49 draws and 55 losses). The team led by Nuno finished the season in 13th place with 45 points, without fighting for relegation but not close to qualifying for the European competitions, although they left a good image. He had previously directed Rio Ave and Porto (Portugal) and Valencia (Spain).
Resisted on social media
As indicated by the English media ‘BBC’, the former Roma coach, Paulo Fonseca, is no longer on the road for being Tottenham’s coach. The same luck had Gennaro Gattuso, who left Fiorentina without even having led a match. Gattuso, like Nuno, was very resisted by the opinion of the fans, to the point that they demonstrated on social networks to prevent his hiring. Some fans circulated the hashtag on twitter “NotToNuno” to avoid being hired.
The same media indicated that Nuno had talks with Everton and Crystal Palace this summer but did not reach an agreement. Another coach who was ruled out for this position was Mauricio Pochettino, former Tottenham coach and currently at PSG, where they have no intention of letting him go. Nuno appears as the main candidate and local sources assure that an agreement could be reached in the next few hours.
