Tottenham fans react as Nuno Espirito Santo favourite to be new manager

Nuno Espirito Santo

Tottenham’s Managerial Circus Act

Spurs have been without a permanent head-coach since Jose Mourinho was fired at the beginning of April, leaving the inexperienced Ryan Mason in charge of the side.

The situation has been further complicated by the Lilywhites’ qualification for the UEFA Conference League, Europe’s third-tier competition, and star striker Harry Kane’s desire to leave the club.

It was thought that Nuno Espirito Santo, last in charge of Wolverhampton Wanderers, had been passed over for the job in North London.

However, perhaps due to a lack of alternatives, the Daily Mail report that the Portuguese boss is rapidly becoming the new favourite to take over at the Tottenham Hotspur stadium

Spurs fans unite again

Widespread condemnation met the potential appointment of Gennaro Gattuso, whose previous sexist and racist comments came to the fore, not to mention the Italian’s notoriously short fuse, a reputation earned during his playing days.

As a result, the hashtag #NotoGattuso trended at number one across the UK.

A week later, and though no such controversy surrounds Nuno Espirito Santo, #NotoNuno is also trending across England.

Much of the fan backlash has been aimed at the style of football that Nuno oversaw whilst at Wolves, with his side having been notorious for defending first before counter attacking, a system that served them well.

On the other hand, Tottenham Chairman Daniel Levy has promised “free-flowing, attacking and entertaining” football.

Based on the social media backlash, it is safe to say that if Levy and new Director of Football Fabio Paratici decide to appoint Nuno, they will hear all about it when fans return to the Tottenham Hotspur stadium.
