Nuno Espírito Santo appointed new Spurs boss

Tottenham Hotspur have ended months of speculation by appointing former Wolverhampton Wanderers boss, Nuno Espírito Santo as the clubs’ new Head Coach.

The Portuguese coach parted company with the Black Country outfit at the end of last season following a successful four-year stint, guiding Wolves from the Championship to Europa League football during that particular period.

The 47-year-old, a former goalkeeper notably with Vitória de Guimarães, Deportivo La Coruña, Porto, and Dynamo Moscow began his managerial career with Rio Ave before taking the helm at both Valencia and Porto, leading the latter to a second-place finish in the Primeira Liga. 

Nuno represented Portugal as a player at various youth levels as well as earning three ‘B’ international caps. On linking up with the Lilywhites, he told www.tottenhamhotspur.com: “When you have a squad with quality and talent, we want to make the fans proud and enjoy. 

“It’s an enormous pleasure and honour, there’s joy and I’m happy and looking forward to starting work. 

“We don’t have any days to lose and we must start working immediately as pre-season starts in a few days.”
