Tottenham have confirmed the arrival of Nuno Espirito Santo as their new manager, with the former Wolves boss signing a deal that will last until 2023.
Spurs’ search for Jose Mourinho’s successor has seen them linked with everyone from Antonio Conte to Gennaro Gattuso, but more recently rumours of Santo’s arrival have picked up pace.
The north London club have now confirmed the appointment. Speaking to the club’s website, Santo said: “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 (to be here), 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.”
Chairman Daniel Levy added: “First of all, I’d like to welcome Nuno to the club. We should like to thank our supporters for all their patience throughout this process.
“I’ve spoken already about the need to revert back to our core DNA of playing attacking, entertaining football and Fabio and I believe Nuno is the man who can take our talented group of players, embrace our young players coming through and build something special.”
Newly appointed managing director Fabio Paratici also said: “The brief for this appointment has always been clear, we wanted a head coach that can instil all the values that are important to this football club.
“You only have to look at Nuno’s time at Wolves to see his ability to take a group of players and implement an adaptive style that brings success and allows players to develop and thrive. We are all looking forward to getting started in what we hope will be a successful time with the club.”
