Exclusive: Steve Bull says Nuno could get Tottenham into the Champions League

Steve Bull reckons that Nuno Espirito Santo could be the man to bring Champions League football back to Tottenham.

Despite being heavily backed by Daniel Levy, Jose Mourinho was unable to get Spurs into the top four in either of his two seasons in north London and paid the price when he was sacked in April.

Mourinho’s departure came more than two months ago, yet Tottenham have been unable to appoint a replacement.

Having missed out on all their top targets, including former boss Mauricio Pochettino and Antonio Conte, Santo, along with Brighton boss Graham Potter, are the two names currently in the frame to be named the next Tottenham manager, according to talkSPORT’s Ian Abrahams on Twitter.

Santo, who left Wolves 48 hours before the end of the Premier League season, has already held talks with Crystal Palace and Everton since leaving Molineux, but remains a free agent having seen deals to both of those collapse.

But with the 47-year-old still in the running to replace his compatriot in north London, Bull exclusively told Football FanCast that Santo could bring success back to Tottenham:

“All day long. You watch the way Wolves play, they were a bit hit and miss last year.

“But the three years before, they were flying, and he would have the quality to get them in the top-four.”
