London, Nov 1 (EFE).- Tottenham Hotspur have dismissed manager Nuno Espirito Santo after just four months in charge, the club said in a statement on Monday.
The Portuguese coach ends his tenure at Tottenham having played just 10 Premier League matches with the team in eighth place on 15 points.
Tottenham took the decision after Saturday’s embarrassing 0-3 defeat at home against Manchester United, during which the Tottenham Hotspur crowd loudly booed the Portuguese coach.
Despite a good start to the campaign, with three wins in their first three games, including one against Manchester City, Spurs have only picked up six more points and have lost to rivals Chelsea, Arsenal and United.
Things are not going much better for them in Europe either, where they have just one win, against minnows Mura, in three Uefa Conference League games.
Tottenham’s sporting director, Fabio Paratici, said the club “regrets” having to part ways with the Portuguese coach.
“Nuno is a true gentleman and will always be welcome here. We should like to thank him and his coaching staff and wish them well for the future,” Paratici said.
Nuno was hired this summer following the sacking of Jose Mourinho the previous season after an arduous search for a new coach by ‘Spurs’, who failed to convince any of their favored candidates on their shortlist to lead a team that has been floundering since the departure of Mauricio Pochettino in 2019.
