Nuno Espirito Santo: Tottenham head coach’s future under scrutiny by board | Football news
The future of Nuno Espirito Santo in Tottenham is said to be under discussion between President Daniel Levy and the board of directors.
Tottenham are eighth in the Premier League and have lost their last two top games against West Ham and Manchester United.
Spurs failed to save a shot on target against Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s side and were booed at the final whistle by Spurs fans still inside Tottenham Hotspur stadium.
Nuno is reportedly not discussing his future following Saturday night’s 3-0 home loss to United, but said he will work hard to turn things around.
After his team’s last loss, Nuno said Air sports: â€œWe are not on the right track. I fully understand the criticisms.
“It’s part of football. When the team isn’t playing, the fans suffer. The fans are not happy, they have shown that they are not.
“It’s up to us to take it, tell them we’re doing our best, tell them we’re sorry because we didn’t play the way we wanted.
“We keep trying. And humbly ask them to support us until the end.”
Sky Sports News has approached Tottenham for a response, but the club are not commenting on the future of their head coach.
Tottenham fans booed Nuno’s decision to replace Lucas Moura with Steven Bergwijn in the second half of the loss to United.
Sections of Spurs support have also chanted ‘we want Levy out’, with England captain Harry Kane also a target of frustration for some fans.
Tottenham have lost four of their last six Premier League games and are eighth in the table after 10 games played this season.
In June, Nuno was appointed to a two-year contract at Tottenham Hotspur Stadium with a one-year extension option.
Ahead of his arrival in north London, the Portuguese enjoyed a successful tenure at the helm of Wolves, which he guided to promotion to the Premier League in the 2017/18 campaign and the Europa League quarter-finals in of the 2019/20 season.
Keane’s explosion for Spurs without ‘boring’ shot
Roy Keane lambasted Tottenham as “boring” after their toothless posting on Saturday night football.
Spurs haven’t had a shot on target in their final two hours and 16 minutes of football since Harry Kane’s 44th-minute header against West Ham and Keane delivered a scathing assessment of their display.
“Spurs are boring,” complained Air sports expert Keane. “They are boring to watch.
“Looking for a bit of urgency. Nothing. I couldn’t believe how bad they were.”
Kane has apparently been singled out for criticism from the stands and Keane believes the England captain has not “recovered” from being denied a summer departure from Tottenham.
“It’s not a good combination when you don’t keep the sheets clean and the Spurs traditionally you think of them scoring goals but they don’t even do it. That’s the type of defeats they have. also had, “Keane said.
â€œYou must have sympathy with the manager because he came in thinking, ‘I’m going to work with a world class striker in Kane’ but that saga continued. Kane didn’t get over it and the ‘team didn’t. “
Companion Air sports Expert Graeme Souness agreed with Keane, saying: “It was the perfect game for Man Utd because Spurs are toothless; the stats tell you that – not a shot on target.
â€œThey are counting on Kane, Son and Moura for a spark, but they look like the shadow of the players they have been in the past.
“If you’re a Spurs fan you are wondering what you’re going to get. They’re toothless and they were very, very average today.”
“It could be a tough season for Spurs. You wonder where they’re going. Mid-table at best.”
