Tottenham has relieved the Portuguese manager of his duty after a terrible run of form losing four in his last six games. The sack comes few hours after their 3:0 lose to Manchester United at home.
The former Wolves boss has been in charge of the London club for just five months and was in charge for 17 games where he could only manage 8 victories. Spurs scored only nine goals in 10 league games, and the club have the worst goal difference (-7) after bottom clubs Norwich City and Newcastle.
Nuno’s sack didn’t come as a surprise because his team were not only struggling to get the results they were also playing badly. They couldn’t get a shot on target playing in front of their fans against Manchester United. Spurs have also struggled in the Europa Conference League, UEFA’s new third-tier competition. They are third in their group, behind Rennes and Vitesse Arnhem, with only one win from three games ahead of their next fixture against Vitesse on Thursday, they are also playing Everton away next in the Premier League.
Talks with Conte are ongoing for him to replace the Portuguese tactician, the same Conte who they went for before giving Nuno the job. The former Chelsea manager is been speculated to fly into London to meet with Daniel Levy and the Spurs board to finalize the deal.
