Tottenham Hotspur chairman makes decision amidst sack calls for manager Nuno

Tottenham Hotspur chairman Daniel Levy is not planning to sack Nuno Espirito Santo any time soon

According to The Athletic (h/t Express), Daniel Levy has no intentions of sacking new Tottenham Hotspur manager Nuno Espirito Santo.

All seemed glum when Daniel Levy sacked Jose Mourinho a week before the EFL Cup final against Manchester City in April. In turn, the chairman hired Ryan Mason as interim manager, somebody who had not even been a year into coaching the youth team. 

Spurs lost the Cup final and made it through till the end of the season as they qualified for the UEFA Europa Conference League. Mason did not give any confidence in the one month he was manager to prove that he could handle a job of this magnitude, and Tottenham were on the lookout for an experienced head in the summer.

Several people were considered for the job including Paul Fonseca, Graham Potter, Antonio Conte, Genaro Gattuso while a sensational return for Mauricio Pochettino was also being eyed. However, in the end, the North London outfit appointed ex-Wolverhampton Wanderers boss Nuno Espirito Santo. 

The Portuguese had left the Molineux club after finishing 13th in the Premier League last season. Despite all of this, Levy entrusted him with the job of taking over at the helm and even convinced Harry Kane to stay at the club this season. 

While things looked like they were changing for the better at the start of the season, three successive heavy defeats to London rivals has not gone down well, while it is also said that the relationship between Nuno and several players have hit rock bottom.

However, despite all of this, Levy is nowhere close to sacking the 47-year-old, according to The Athletic (h/t The Express). In fact, it is some of the players, who are apparently shouldering the blame for the poor performances.

Regardless, it remains to be seen what it will take for Levy to take such a drastic decision as Nuno looks to take this team ahead and turn it into one that is competing for the biggest trophies again.
