LONDON: Nuno Espirito Santo’s position as Tottenham Hotspur manager is now at the tip of the horn after club chairman Daniel Levy held an emergency meeting yesterday.
Levy discussed the operator’s future with sporting director Fabio Paratici following a 3-0 home defeat to Manchester United last Saturday.
Now Levy has to decide whether to sack Nuno, 47, after recording just five wins from 10 Premier League games this season.
If sacked, Nuno will be a full -time Spurs manager working in the shortest period under Levy – for 124 days.
Frenchman Jaxcques Santino was sacked in November 2004 after just 155 days in charge of Spurs.
Fans also added pressure on Levy to sack the Portuguese by chanting ‘We want Nuno out’ at Tottenham Hotspur Stadium last Saturday.
Fans also want Levy to step out of the club, and England striker Harry Kane was also ridiculed when he chose to make passes rather than try.
Nuno, who arrived from Wolves last summer and coached Spurs in 17 games, admitted: “We’re not on the right track and understand criticism – it’s part of football.
“When a team doesn’t become, the fans will show that they are not happy. It’s up to us to accept it, tell them we’re doing our best.
“We have to keep trying and humbly expect them to continue to provide support.”
