BY IROEGBU IKECHUKWU
English Premier league club, Tottenham Hotspur have announced the sacking of Nuno Espirito Santo and his coaching staff.
This followed a 3-0 loss at home to Manchester United over the weekend.
Spurs had topped the Premier League standings in August after winning their opening three games but lost for the fifth time in the league to now sit 10 points behind leaders Chelsea.
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,” Tottenham announced on their website.
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.”
Results have taken a bad turn, with three defeats in four games, Spurs’ style of play is frustrating fans, with the team going two hours and 16 minutes without a shot on target.
The form of star player Harry Kane, following his failed attempt to force a transfer in the summer, is alarming, with the forward scoring just one goal in the Premier League this season.
