Nuno Espirito Santo speaks out about the ‘ruthless’ sacking of Spurs manager Mauricio Pochettino, admitting that the last four months ‘didn’t go as planned.’

NUNO ESPIRITO SANTO has spoken out about his sacking by Tottenham, which he described as “ruthless.”

After only four months at the helm, the Portuguese, 47, was fired last week.

Following his side’s 3-0 home defeat to Manchester United, he was quickly replaced by Antonio Conte.

“Wow, the last few weeks have been chaotic to say the least,” Nuno wrote on Instagram.

“This is football, the most brutal sport in the world; only a few weeks ago, I was named Manager of the Month, and now it’s been a few days since I was fired from Spurs.”

“This is life; now I move forward in search of my next challenge.”

I’d like to express my gratitude to the Spurs fans; when I first joined this great club, I had a vision of bringing trophies to the club, but things didn’t go as planned.

“That’s really all there is to it; we live and learn. I’ll keep you all updated, and I appreciate your continued support.”

Nuno was fired by Wolves earlier this year after four years as the club’s manager.

After Fabio Paratici’s appointment as managing director, the Lilywhites gave him a chance after he was passed over for the Spurs job by Daniel Levy.

Three 1-0 victories in August earned him the Premier League manager of the month award.

Tottenham’s fortunes changed dramatically in September, when they were thrashed 3-0 by Crystal Palace and then Chelsea, followed by a disastrous 3-1 loss at Arsenal.

Victories over Aston Villa and Newcastle provided a brief reprieve before 1-0 losses to Vitesse and West Ham re-instilled the pressure.

Nuno’s decisions were booed by the Spurs faithful, who also chanted ‘you don’t know what you’re doing.’ The defeat to a struggling Manchester United proved to be the final straw.

Paratici quickly replaced Nuno with Conte, who won his first game 3-2 against Vitesse before overseeing a 0-0 draw with Everton.

Spurs are currently in ninth place in the Premier League table, six points behind the top four teams.
