What went wrong for Nuno Espirito Santo at Tottenham

Nuno Espirito Santo’s tenure at Tottenham ended on Monday morning after just 124 days, and bleak details about his reign have already started to emerge.

Following on from the 3-0 defeat to Manchester United on Saturday, chairman Daniel Levy made the decision to remove Nuno from his post – given how dreary and uninspiring recent performances have been from Spurs.

They’ve lost half of the 10 Premier League games they’ve played this season – as well as dropping points in the Europa Conference League against Rennes and Vitesse – but more worryingly haven’t offered any kind of threat going forward – you only need to look at Harry Kane’s goal return to see how bad things have been in front of goal.

They have also been exceptionally easy to play against, with Tottenham’s midfield core bypassed all too regularly in order to expose their relatively new defence.

With Nuno gone, Spurs are expected to appoint Antonio Conte as their new head coach on an initial 18-month deal – one that includes a host of break clauses should things go awry for the Italian.
