Tottenham has ended the search for a new manager by appointing Nuno Espirito Santo as the new head coach of the club. The ex-Wolves boss has penned a two-year deal with the club and will take over from interim manager Ryan Mason. The deal was closed by the new Managing Director of Spurs, Fabio Paratici. He had held talks with a number of high-profile managers such as Antonio Conte, Mauricio Pochettino, Paulo Fonseca, Gennaro Gattuso, and Julen Lopetegui over the summer.
“When you have a squad with quality and talent, we want to make the fans proud and enjoy,” new Tottenham boss Nuno Espirito Santo said. “It’s an enormous pleasure and honor [to be here], there’s joy and I’m happy and looking forward to starting work. We don’t have any days to lose and we must start working immediately as pre-season starts in a few days.”
“First of all, I’d like to welcome Nuno to the club,” said Spurs chairman Daniel Levy. “We should like to thank our supporters for all their patience throughout this process. I’ve spoken already about the need to revert back to our core DNA of playing attacking, entertaining football, and Fabio, and I believe Nuno is the man who can take our talented group of players, embrace our young players coming through and build something special.”
Nuno led Wolves back into the Premier League in 2018. Since then, wolves have finished in the top half of the table each season. They finished seventh on two occasions including qualifying for the Europa League. Last season, the Wolves could not cope with the loss of their talisman Raul Jimenez after he suffered a skull fracture. prior to wolves, Nuno was in charge of Valencia, Porto, and Rio Ave.
