Spurs waited over 70 days before confirming that Nuno had arrived, while Everton also spent weeks deciding on Rafael Benitez. 

Benitez’s arrival at Goodison Park has been highly controversial, and Nuno’s move to Tottenham hasn’t created widespread excitement.

But Toffees fans feel that they may well have actually nabbed the more qualified manager.

Nuno or Benitez?

Nuno actually was linked with the Everton job, but talks never advanced to the stage where he came particularly close to taking the job.

Nuno has performed well at Wolves, but in terms of past success – his CV cannot match Benitez’s. 

It’s fair to say that neither manager appears the ideal fit for the club they have just taken over at, though. 

Benitez will have to win over doubters, after having strong Liverpool connections, while Nuno will need to prove that he can deliver on his promise of providing attacking football at Spurs.

The pressure is, therefore, on both Tottenham and Everton to make fast starts to their campaigns, as it is likely that patience may be in short supply otherwise.
