Tottenham: Spurs eye Sergio Conceicao as Nuno’s successor

Tottenham: Spurs eye Sergio Conceicao as Nuno’s successor -Tottenham Hotspur News

According to The Evening Standard, Sergio Conceicao is on Tottenham’s shortlist to replace Nuno Espirito Santo as the club’s manager.

The Lowdown: Espirito Santo sacked

After just four months in charge, Nuno has been relieved of his duties at the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium as of Monday morning.

Can you name all of these forgotten Spurs wonderkids? This guy was once called 'the next Didier Drogba'...

With Spurs eighth in the table and with just two wins in their last seven Premier League outings (Sky Sports), Daniel Levy and co seemingly had little choice put to part ways with the former Wolves boss.

The Latest: Spurs want Conceicao

As per this latest report from The Evening Standard, Spurs are interested in Conceicao, who is currently in charge of FC Porto.

The 46-year-old is joined on a shortlist for the role by Paulo Fonseca and Antonio Conte.

The Verdict: Strong pedigree

Conceicao may not be a familiar name to most in England, but he is doing an impressive job at Porto. Since arriving at the club in 2017, he has a 71% win rate (Transfermarkt) and has won five trophies overall, including two Portuguese league titles (Transfermarkt). Last season, his side reached the Champions League quarter-finals, defeating Juventus along the way and falling narrowly to eventual tournament winners Chelsea.

Should Spurs hire Conceicao?

Yes

Yes

No

No

Spurs need a manager with an identity and a winning mentality, and those are two things Conceicao can boast. There are other targets on the club’s shortlist, of course, but the 46-year-old would be a good choice if that is the route Levy wants to take. Their last two managerial appointments from Portugal might have been short-lived, but the Porto boss seems to have the characteristics to make it work at Tottenham if he is given the reins.
