Report: Path now clear for Spurs to appoint 'world class' manager, Paratici in London for talks

Fabio Paratici has arrived in London for the first time as the new Spurs managing director of football amid a need to appoint a new first-team manager.

And according to Sky Sports, he plans to press ahead with appointing Nuno Espirito Santo as Tottenham‘s new head coach.

The outlet claims reports linking Nuno with Fenerbahce at the weekend were wide of the mark.

This means the path is clear for Paratici to thrash out a deal with the former Wolves manager.

Tottenham are still in pursuit of a new manager, more than two months after sacking Jose Mourinho.

It’s not been smooth sailing for Spurs, who came close to landing a new boss on a few occasions, but to no avail.

However, it now looks as if Tottenham are set for Nuno, a manager who did well for the majority of his time at Wolves.

The 47-year-old got the Molineux side promoted to the Premier League in 2018.

He then established Wolves as a top-half side – twice finishing seventh – until last season, when they ended 13th.

Admittedly, last term was incredibly difficult for Wolves, who were without star striker Raul Jimenez for much of the campaign.

Spurs looking at “excellent” manager?

Sections of the Spurs fanbase don’t seem too keen on Nuno but one player – now with Tottenham – rates him highly.

“Tactically I think he is on another level,” Matt Doherty told the Express & Star about Nuno in 2019.

“He is a world-class manager and his man management skills are also excellent.”
