Tottenham Hotspur have sacked manager and head coach Nuno Espirito Santo following a 3-0 defeat at the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium on Saturday.
Santo was appointed Spurs manager in June, and has been sacked four months into the job. Tottenham are sitting at eighth in the Premier League, 10 points behind league leaders Chelsea, having lost five of their last seven games.
Fabio Paratici, Tottenham’s managing director of football, said: “I know how much Nuno and his staff wanted to succeed and I regret that we have had to take this decision.”
Santo has a 53 per cent win rate as Spurs manager in 17 games across all competitions. His win rate is the sixth best of all managers in the Premier League who have been in charge of a team since the start of the 2021/22 season.
Tottenham are the third Premier League team to sack their manager this season.
Antonio Conte is the 1/8 favourite to be the next Spurs manager. He would be the fourth man to take charge of both Chelsea and Tottenham during his career.
