Tottenham have parted ways with Coach Nuno Espirito Santo after Saturday’s dismal 3-0 defeat to Manchester United.
Espirito’s reign at the North London club comes to an end barely four months after succeeding fellow Portuguese, Jose Mourinho.
In a statement on Spurs’ website, Managing Director of Football Fabio Paratici said: “I know how much Nuno and his coaching staff wanted to succeed and I regret that we have had to take this decision.
“Nuno is a true gentleman and will always be welcome here.
“We should like to thank him and his coaching staff and wish them well for the future.”
Former boss Mauricio Pochettino and ex-Chelsea Manager Antonio Conte were both targets in the summer and have been linked with Spurs again.
Nuno’s coaching staff of Ian Cathro, Rui Barbosa and Antonio Dias have also left the club, with Spurs saying a further update will follow in due course.
