JUST IN: Tottenham Sack Manager Nuno Espirito Santo
After just four months in charge of Tottenham Hotspur, Portuguese manager, Nuno Espirito Santo has been sacked.
Spurs were forced into an emergency meeting over the weekend following the 3-0 defeat to Manchester United at the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium on Saturday.
The London club are eighth on the Premier League standings after five wins and five losses in the entire ten games Nuno managed in the league since he replaced Jose Mourinho at the start of the season.
The former Wolves manager was sacked along with his coaching staff due to the poor form which has extended into Europe.

“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,” the statement read.
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.”
The club will give further updates on his replacement plans in due course.
