Tottenham are on the verge of ending their 72-day search for a new manager – with former Wolves boss Nuno Espirito Santo close to being appointed.

Jose Mourinho was sacked ahead of the Carabao Cup final all the way back on 19 April, but it’s been a painful process for Daniel Levy, who’s been unable to attract all of his top targets.

However, according to Alasdair Gold, Santo is set to be named as his compatriots replacement less than seven days before Tottenham return to Hotspur Way for pre-season on Monday.

Gold believes that Santo, who isn’t a popular appointment with many Spurs supporters, has promised Director of Football Fabio Paratici that that he’s willing to play an attacking brand of football, similar to his Valencia side back in 14-15, who finished fourth in La Liga, scoring 70 goals in the league.

Santo did an exceptional job during his four years with Wolves, winning the Championship in his first campaign before leading them to consecutive seventh-place finishes.

However, whilst Wolves were often devastating on the counter-attack, Santo’s has been criticised for his defensive style, which has overshadowed his imminent appointment in north London.

But we believe that with the right backing, this could yet prove a better decision from Levy than some might anticipate.



  1. De Boer has left as coach of Holland.
    Surely this is our big chance; we should be all over this.
    This would be the perfect fit for us; just what Levy needs and is looking for.
    Get it done Levy.
    As I don’t believe any coach would be successful under the present set up, De Boer would be just as good as any other.

  2. Would be a nightmare appointment. Mourinho mark 2. Another anti football manager whose main focus is to stop the opposition from playing.

    He didn’t give any of the Wolves academy players an opportunity in the first team.

    He is the complete opposite extreme to the type of manager that we need.

    Erik Ten Hag was the ideal choice. Spurs should have gone all out for him as soon as Mourinho was booted out.

    Why on earth did Levy bring in Paratici who prefers conservative managers and clearly doesn’t understand Tottenham’s traditions of entertaining football?

    Spurs are sadly doomed for many years.
