Nuno at Tottenham looks a bad fit

Nuno, who enjoyed four brilliant years in charge of Wolverhampton Wanderers before leaving them this summer, is a quality manager. But, whether he’s right for Spurs is a completely different conversation. 

He’s quite a pragmatic manager that set his Wolves team up to be defensively astute, with a 3-4-3 formation working extremely well.

Nuno was linked with Spurs back in April (Express), but he’s once again being spoken about.
