Nuno Santo faces Spurs axe after Daniel Levy’s fury revealed

Nuno Santo could be axed as Tottenham Hotspur in the very near future, according to reports…

What’s the word?

The Telegraph’s Matt Law delivered a series of updates on the mounting situation in north London to Twitter on Sunday afternoon, alongside an accompanying article, he said:

“Exclusive – Nuno could be sacked by Tottenham. Talks over his future [are] happening today.

“Bit more detail added to this now – [Daniel] Levy was said to be furious after yesterday’s defeat…”

Should Levy SACK Nuno this week?





It’s thought that the Portuguese head coach may be sacked after just four months in charge after urgent talks have been called for following their 3-0 defeat to Manchester United in the Premier League on Saturday night.

Sources close to the club believe it is a matter of time until Nuno is gone, with an imminent decision not being ruled out, having already been under pressure due to their poor run of form before the international break, as per the ever-reliable Law.

Antonio Conte has been linked with the potential vacancy once again.

Mutinous mood at Spurs

Losses against Vitesse in the UEFA Europa Conference League, West Ham and United have now put the 47-year-old’s future back under the spotlight, with a return game against the Dutch outfit to come on Thursday night before Everton on Sunday afternoon.

Much of the Lilywhites faithful voted with their voice and their feet this weekend, with many flocking out of the ground well before full-time, whilst those that did remain were heard chanting ‘You don’t know what you’re doing’ at the manager and demanded for Levy to go, too.

The fact of the matter is, Nuno was always fighting a losing battle as many were completely against his appointment in the first place. He was far from Spurs’ first-choice in the boardroom and the supporters even managed to get a social media campaign to say ‘NoToNuno‘ trending in the weeks before his arrival.

Levy was reportedly keen to instil the ‘Spurs DNA‘ that we witnessed under Mauricio Pochettino – an attacking brand of football that would bring excitement back to a frustrated fanbase. However, Nuno has delivered quite the opposite as their struggles in the final third have been ever so clear.

Can you guess these ex-players? First up... A history-maker at Spurs but scored just one goal in ten appearances, who is he?

Only rock-bottom Norwich City have averaged fewer shots per game than Spurs (10.3) in the Premier League this campaign, with the north Londoners also sat inside the bottom six clubs for expected goals (10.63).

Elsewhere, Harry Kane has found the net just once in the top-flight and attacking midfield maestro Dele Alli is back to being a snubbed figure. Those are among the many more issues facing Nuno and his squad as we head into November.

On the above evidence, the fans will absolutely love this latest update from Law and it should leave them hugely excited for what might be ahead in the coming weeks, if not days.

A change in the dugout could be a desperate move but one that saves Levy’s bacon, for the time being. Spurs are only continuing their alarming regression despite the change of manager, so something has got to give, sooner rather than later.
