Ole Gunnar Solskjaer gives his opinion on Tottenham Hotspur sacking Nuno Espirito Santo

According to Manchester Evening News, Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has given his thoughts on the sack of Nuno Espirito Santo following Tottenham Hotspur losing 3-0 to Manchester United at home in the Premier League on Sunday.

Spurs released a statement earlier on Monday announcing the sack of Nuno and his coaching staff. The loss against the Red Devils appears to have been the incident that broke the camel’s back.

Santo was appointed as the manager in the summer after Daniel Levy was unable to get his first choice targets to replace Jose Mourinho as full-time manager. Unfortunately for Nuno, the arrangement lasted just four months.

Solskajer, whose own job is far from secure could find himself in Nuno’s shoes if results don’t pick up at Old Trafford. He admits that watching his compatriot get the sack was not a good feeling.

“It’s never nice to see good men lose their jobs, he’s been working hard and I don’t know what the situation is at Tottenham but as a colleague, you are never happy when that happens. You try to get in touch with him and tell him your feelings.”

The Norwegian has mentioned that it is sad to see the Portuguese in this situation while acknowledging his efforts. He also added how he would like to contact Nuno and offer his support.

The former Wolverhampton Wanderers boss will not be leaving empty-handed as he would is due a huge amount as severance. The Sun states that he would earn an amount worth £14million for ripping off his two-year contract.

Tottenham are said to be close to appointing Antonio Conte as the next manager at the club. Earlier, Conte was said to be a possible replacement for Ole should he be sacked by the Man Utd board. It is ironic to think that it could have been Solskajer who might have got the sack had Spurs come out on top at the weekend.
