Nuno Espirito is the new Spurs Head Coach

Tottenham have appointed Nuno Espirito Santo as their new manager on a two-year deal.

The former Wolves boss has signed a two-year deal with the north London club bringing an end to their long-running search for Jose Mourinho’s successor.

Then new managing director of football Fabio Paratici who arrived from Juventus with a view of appointing a more tactically conservative head coach is believed to be the force behind final decision on Nuno amidst other interests.

 

Paratici who led the club’s search for a new permanent head coach closed the deal as he flew into London for the first time on Tuesday.

Tottenham’s hunt for their next head coach has taken them across Europe with talks initially held with former boss Mauricio Pochettino and Ajax head coach Erik ten Hag.

The likes of Hansi Flick, Julian Nagelsmann and Brendan Rodgers were also sounded out as the club looked for a very defined type of head coach, one to play the “free-flowing, attacking and entertaining” football chairman Daniel Levy had promised the fans.

The Portuguese brought Wolves into the Premier League in 2018 and established them as a top-half side – twice finishing seventh and once qualifying for the Europa League – until last season, when they ended 13th.

Previously, he had stints at Valencia, Porto and Rio Ave, where he steered the side to two cup finals and qualification for the Europa League for the first time in their history.
