Tottenham backroom trio including Nuno recognized for achievements and included in prestigious ‘Black List’ 2021
Tottenham Hotspur manager Nuno Espirito Santo included in the prestigious Football Black List 2021
According to the official Spurs website, Tottenham Hotspur manager, Nuno Espirito Santo makes it to the Football Black List 2021.
The Football Black List was an initiative founded by journalists Leon Mann and Rodney Hinds in 2008 to celebrate the contributions of the Black community in Football. The list includes people who have made a significant impact in the beautiful game across all areas.
Sarah Ebanja and Dayne Matthieu from the Lilywhites staff have also made it to this prestigious list. The former is the Chief Executive of the Tottenham Hotspur Foundation while the latter is Head of Safeguarding and Welfare. The list also includes the likes of star footballers Ivan Toney and Marcus Rashford.
The list recognizes individuals across eight categories such as Administration, Coaching & Management, Commercial, Community, Players, LGBTQ+, Media, and Practitioners. This goes a long way in celebrating the ethos of the game that united people from different cultures. Nuno made the list in the coaching category whereas Sarah and Dayne fall under the administration category.
Leon Mann commented (h/t Sky Sports) on the importance of the awards. He opines that these awards aim to highlight contributions on and off the pitch:
“Black excellence in football is regularly talked about on the pitch – and we want to help highlight the contribution of Black leaders off the field in the sport, too.”
The Portuguese manager rose to prominence as he brought Wolverhampton Wanderers to the Premier League and cultivated them into a supremely talented squad. The 47-year-old manager has struggled to have that kind of dominance with Spurs so far.
