'Oh no': Some Tottenham fans are panicking after announcement on Nuno
Tottenham fans have taken to Twitter in a panic after it was announced that Nuno Espirito Santo had been named Manager of the Month.
What’s the story?
Firstly, you’re probably wondering why this news has alarmed Spurs fans.
Well, it’s because they think history may be repeating itself.
Some Tottenham fans clearly recall when their side was flying under José Mourinho, sitting pretty at the top of the Premier League.
Interestingly, Mourinho won the very same Manager of the Month award for guiding Spurs to the summit in December 2020.
Of course, as we all know, it then collapsed for the ex-Chelsea boss in N17, and his side eventually finished seventh after he was sacked.
Clearly, some Tottenham fans are wary of the same happening under another manager of Portuguese origin in Nuno.
Will Nuno do a Mourinho at Tottenham?
It’s very hard to answer that question.
As of now, the players look happy under Nuno, and are also – crucially – winning games of football under the 47-year-old.
However, the same was said during Mourinho’s early days in north London.
A new manager bounce is a real thing, so it is certainly worth waiting a bit until a proper judgement on Nuno is made.
Having said that, you simply can’t fault anything he’s done so far.
Nuno handled the Harry Kane saga superbly, and has guided Spurs to three wins from three without conceding a goal in the Premier League.
Hopefully, the curse doesn’t follow his award.
For now, let’s see what the Tottenham fans on Twitter have been saying after Nuno was named Manager of the Month…
