Report: Nuno Santo could get Lazio job in another blow to Spurs manager hunt
Spurs could be in for more disappointment in their search for a new manager, with Lazio said to be keen on former Wolves boss, Nuno Santo.
Santo departed Molinuex a few weeks back after a glittering spell with the club came to an abrupt end.
However, the former Wolves boss is still highly-regarded in the game, and is being lined up for a number of potential jobs this summer. One of them is Spurs, with the Sun reporting just this week that Jorge Mendes was trying to convince Spurs to take on Santo.
But now, reports in Italy suggest Lazio are getting the same treatment.
Calciomercato claims that Mendes is working to bring Santo to the Italian capital as the new Lazio manager. The Rome club are looking for a fresh face in the dugout after losing Simone Inzaghi to Inter Milan this week.
Further, the same report also claims Mendes is looking to take Rui Patricio away from Wolves, too. Although this would be a move to Roma with Jose Mourinho at Roma.
Spurs, meanwhile, appear to be hitting brick wall after brick wall in their search for a new manager. The likes of Brendan Rodgers, Erik Ten Hag, and now, Santo, all appear to be slipping the net.
Nuno Santo to Lazio a blow for Spurs but not the end of the world
While many Spurs fans initally got quite excited by the prospect of seeing Santo in the dugout, it’s also not the end of the world if they miss out.
His time with Wolves came to an end with a bit of whimper, in fairness.
Sure, he led them to good finishes in the Premier League but from there, the club never really kicked on. That means there remains question marks over Santo’s ability to really drive teams to the next level.
For now, Spurs can rest easy. But the longer this managerial hunt does go on, the more worrying it becomes in all honesty.
