Tottenham manager: Spurs fans upset at links to former Premier League boss

Tottenham are set to turn to Nuno Espirito Santo as Jose Mourinho’s successor and as a result, their fans are absolutely disgusted.

Ryan Mason oversaw the closing stages of the campaign. However, Tottenham have suffered several setbacks in their quest to appoint a new man.

Now Espirito Santo is the man in pole position. The Portuguese incumbent left Wolves at the end of last season after four seasons.

According to The Guardian, Tottenham are now considering the 47-year-old. He is a client of super-agent Jorge Mendes who has a good relationship with new Spurs managing director, Fabio Paratici.

Spurs have endured plenty of near misses. Antonio Conte and Paulo Fonseca were both nailed on for the role at one point, but now they’re back to square one.

Now, it looks as though Espirito Santo is the man set to be tasked with reviving the club’s fortunes.

The Tottenham job won’t be an easy gig. The club are in the Europa Conference League next season and Spurs will want to progress in the Premier League.

A seventh-place finish last time around wasn’t good enough and as a result, changes are required on the pitch.

Espirito Santo enjoyed a decent time of things at Wolves. He won promotion at the first time of asking and then led them into the Europa League.

Last season was a bit disappointing but he’s proved himself as a pretty decent manager. Whether he’s the man for Spurs, however, remains to be seen.

Nuno Espirito Santo to Tottenham: Fans aren’t happy

It’s fair to say this decision has gone down like a lead balloon. Spurs fans wanted a bigger name and are disgruntled they won’t get one.

Santo had a win percentage of 47% at Wolves. He has also spent time managing Rio Ave, Valencia and Porto during his career.

Following last night’s news, supporters have taken to Twitter to vent their frustrations at the potential appointment.

Here is what they had to say as the Wolves man now looks set to take on the Tottenham position.
