Spurs sack Espirito Santo



By Paul Lagan


Spurs are on the look out for a new manager - four months after employing Nuno Espirito Santo and his team


The club sacked him this morning.

A statement from the club said: "The club can today announce that Nuno Espírito Santo and his coaching staff Ian Cathro, Rui Barbosa and Antonio Dias have been relieved of their duties.".


Fabio Paratici, managing director, football, said: I know how much Nuno and his coaching staff wanted to succeed and I regret that we have had to take this decision.

"Nuno is a true gentleman and will always be welcome here. We should like to thank him and his coaching staff and wish them well for the future.”

A further coaching update will follow in due course.

Top of that particular pile is ex-Chelsea head coach Antonio Conte.
