Tottenham fans have taken to Twitter in a panic after it was announced that Nuno Espirito Santo had been named Manager of the Month.

Firstly, you’re probably wondering why this news has alarmed Spurs fans.

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.

Having said that, you simply can’t fault anything he’s done so far.
