Tottenham Hotspur have finally ticked off one item from their to-do list after confirming via an official announcement that they have completed the appointment of former Wolverhampton Wanderers manager Nuno Espirito Santos to become their new boss. Tottenham owner Daniel Levy was always in the market for a managerial appointment after the sacking of Jose Mourinho before the end of last season and after coming across a lot of options, Nuno has now been chosen as the new manager to be in charge of the team next season.
The sacking of Jose Mourinho happened around the period Paulo Fonseca was dismissed as AS Roma manager, with the Italian boss getting the sack after he was unable to guide the Italian Serie A giants to better fortunes. Fonseca was one of the first options Levy had in mind to become the next manager at the Tottenham Hotspur stadium but after contract negotiations, plans changed.
Antonio Conte, Genarro Gattuso, and Carlo Ancelotti were other managerial candidates that were under consideration by Levy as he kept searching for the ideal manager that would agree to the club's transfer policy, while also guiding the London club to more successes. Nuno Espirito left his role as Wolverhampton Wanderers manager at the end of last season and was immediately linked with the managerial vacancy at Everton but the Merseyside club eventually had other targets in mind.
Filling the appointment of Nuno as new Tottenham manager, his first major task as Spurs manager will be to convince star striker Harry Kane to remain at the club, with the forward set to seal a switch away. After that. He will be tasked with the responsibility of signing a couple of players that will strengthen the club in the needed areas ahead of next season.
