New Tottenham Hotspur manager announced: Nuno Espirito Santo takes over the Spurs’ sporting fortunes with immediate effect. The 47-year-old receives a contract with North London until 2023. This was confirmed by Hotspur on Wednesday night. The Portuguese replaces interim coach Ryan Mason in the Premier League, replacing his compatriot Jose Mourinho, who was sacked by the London team in April. Mourinho is moving to Roma, which he will take charge of this summer.
Nuno Espirito Santo is no stranger to the Premier League. From 2017 to 2021 he was the coach of the Wolverhampton Wanderers, who became a regular player in the English Premier League with several Portuguese players after promotion in 2018. In 2020 Santo qualified with the “Wolves” for the European League. After a disappointing 2020/21 season, the coach and club finally agreed to separate at the end of the season. Tottenham have signed Santo on a free transfer.
Santo, who once won the Champions League as a player with FC Porto, has previously coached FC Valencia and Porto, among others. “I am happy and looking forward to starting work. We have no time to waste and we have to start working immediately”As Santo said, according to the club’s official announcement. Spurs finished last season in seventh place in the table.
