Darren Bent says 47-year-old Premier League manager would be good for Tottenham
Darren Bent has claimed that Wolverhampton Wanderers boss Nuno Espirito Santo would be a great choice to be the next Tottenham manager.
Nuno, who’s leaving Wolves at the end of this season after four years in charge, will soon be out of work after this week’s exit announcement.
The 47-year-old will leave a huge mark though on Molineux.
After getting them promoted from the Championship during his first year in charge, he’s enjoyed three seasons of Premier League football.
Despite a slight drop off this year that will see them finish around mid-table, they punched well above their weight to finish seventh in back-to-back seasons in the top flight.
Pundit and ex-Spurs forward Bent is convinced the Portuguese coach would be a brilliant option for Spurs.
However, the Athletic claimed on Friday that Nuno is not in contention to be the next Spurs manager.
“He’s managed to get Wolves seventh,” Bent told talkSPORT.
“If he got that Spurs team, with those players, I think he’d easily finish higher than seventh. I think Nuno would be a good appointment.”
Interim Spurs boss Ryan Mason will take charge of his last game this weekend in the final day match away to Leicester City, and the pressure is on to get a result that secures European football.
With the campaign nearly at its end, a lot of supporters are growing increasingly frustrated that the north London club are yet to announce who the full-time successor will be to Jose Mourinho.
They’ve worked with Mason as the temporary basis in the last month, but the new manager could do with as much time as possible going into next season.
