Tottenham Hotspurs have sacked their manager Nuno Espirito Santo after just four months in charge, it has now been confirmed on Monday.
“I know how much Nuno and his coaching staff wanted to succeed and I regret that we have had to take this decision,” said managing director of football Fabio Paratici.
“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,” added Paratici.
After Sunday’s Manchester united thrashing at home, it was reported that the club’s management went into a crisis meeting to discuss the Portuguese future after losing three out of four league matches.
After four years at Wolves, the Portuguese, 47, was named Spurs manager on a two-year contract.
Spurs, who were booed off following the 3-0 home loss to United, started the season strongly and after winning their first league three matches, Nuno was named Premier League manager of the month for August.
Tottenham said a decision on who will succeed Nuno will “follow in due course”.
