After being booed as well as heckled hard by Tottenham Hotspur supporters, Nuno Espírito Santo was fired on Monday, November 1, 2021 following his 5th defeat out of their past 10 EUFA Premier League matches as the leader and manager of the Tottenham Hotspur Football Club.
Now Tottenham has been in talks with Antonio Conte as they attempt to hire him as the next manager of the Tottenham Hotspur F. C. This is just one of the coaches that Tottenham sought out to try and recruit in their chaotic off-season progression that ended – up with Nuno being quite distant from Tottenham’s 1st choice for the job as their head coach.
Coach Nuno was fired just after only 4 – months on the job, following a 3 and 0 home loss to Manchester United last Saturday, October 30th, 2021 when his ultimate choices were jeered and fans were chanting, “You don’t know what you’re doing,” at the Portuguese head coach of Tottenham Hotspur.
In a gradually explosive atmosphere, Tottenham Hotspur F. C. supporters also shouted, “We want Levy out,” at the Tottenham Hotspur chairman, Daniel Levy, who has now chosen the managerial change is once again required again following the firing of Jose Mourinho in April of 2021.
Tottenham explained to the media that Nuno and his coaching staff had been, “Relieved of their duties,” and that an upcoming update on the new coaching regime, “Will follow in due course,” as no successor has been announced by the football club as of now.
If a new deal can be orchestrated bringing Antonio Conte to Tottenham, it could mark a huge return for him to London after he left Chelsea way back 2018. Conte won the Premier League and FA Cup during the 2 – years in charge of the West London football club, and Conte parted – ways with the financially – challenged, Inter Milan, following their victory as the Serie A title-holder back in May.
The Italian top candidate to coach Tottenham Hotspur has an amazing track record of winning major trophies which coach Nuno was definitely lacking on his coaching resume. Santo leaves with Tottenham Hotspur F. C. currently in 8th place in the Premier League (10 – points behind leader Chelsea and 5 – points behind 4th – placed West Ham) in the search of a Champions League place in the standings.
“I know how much Nuno and his coaching staff wanted to succeed and I regret that we have had to take this decision,” the Tottenham Hotspur F. C. managing director, Fabio Paratici, expressed. “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.”
Nuno only managed the Tottenham Hotspur Football Club for 17 – games in all league competitions. While Santo was named as the Premier League Manager of the Month in August following them winning the first 3 – games of the season (starting vs. champion Manchester City) Tottenham has only won 2 of the 7 matches since then.
There has been a little progress in the League Cup on the road to the quarterfinals, but in the Europa Conference League Tottenham Hotspur has won just 1 of 3 contests.
The club of North London, England has qualified for Europe’s new 3rd – tier competition after finishing in 7th – place in the Premier League, a far cry from the 4 straight top – 4 Champions League finishes from 2016 to 2019 under former manager, Mauricio Pochettino.
The Argentine even managed to reach the Champions League final back in 2019, even though being unable to make any significant signings that season, missing out on the Champions League championship eventually to Liverpool. A bad start to the next season attributed to him being fired in November of 2019, and he is currently atop of the French League with Paris Saint – Germain’s football club.
Tottenham is still scratching to meet the overall standards set by Pochettino, and reproduce the high-tempo striking football style in order to attract fans in to their 2 – year – old stadium which increased the club’s standing debt of 604.6 million pounds or $828 million according to their most recent financial reporting.
Tottenham has not won a trophy since the 2008 League Cup, and they last won the league championship way way back in 1961.
