Writing on Twitter, reliable Tottenham Hotspur correspondent and football.london journalist Alasdair Gold has shared major manager news involving Nuno Espirito Santo.
The Lowdown: Spurs now eyeing Nuno…
Nuno appears to be the main contender for Tottenham now after a series of bosses came in and out of the fray.
The likes of Brendan Rodgers and Julian Nagelsmann were first linked to the post after Spurs sacked Jose Mourinho, and it’s been anything but smooth sailing since then.
Spurs fans have watched numerous talks collapse over the last month alone, with negotiations for Mauricio Pochettino, Antonio Conte, Paulo Fonseca and Gennaro Gattuso all failing to amount to an appointment (BBC).
The Latest: Gold shares major Nuno news…
Writing on social media, Gold has shared major news in regards to Nuno and him possibly taking the job at Tottenham.
Indeed, as explained by the reporter, it now looks very likely that the Portuguese will become Spurs’ next boss after over two months waiting.
He even says that Tottenham could have the 47-year-old in place by next week just before pre-season, barring a complete U-turn.
“Understand that, barring a complete about turn (and we’ve had enough of those in these 67 days), the former Wolves boss could be in place at Tottenham next week just days before pre-season starts at Hotspur Way.” Gold stated on Twitter.
The Verdict: Big claim…
This comes as a big claim by a reliable source with the Spurs manager hunt appearing to be near it’s conclusion barring yet another complete collapse.
While his style doesn’t exactly fit the Tottenham ‘DNA’ of open, attacking football, Nuno does have a proven track record of nurturing young players and getting the very best out of his current crop (football.london).
Coming as a bit of a mixed bag in that regard, Spurs could arguably do far worse and they need to make a decision with pre-season training for non-internationals starting just next week.
