Espirito Santo had only signed a two-year contract until 2023 at the Spurs in June – as the successor to José Mourinho or Interim Trainer Ryan Mason. After only ten matchdays (five victories, five defeats) in the Premier League, his term ends again. The fashion curve was last clearly down: In the last seven league games, the Spurs merged only six counters and also lost in the Conference League against Vitesse Arnheim 0: 1.

I know how much now and his coaching staff wanted to succeed, and I m sure we had to make this decision, said Managing Director Fabio Paratici: Nuno is a true gentleman and will always be welcome here.

In addition to the 47-year-old Portuguese, Ian Cathro, Rui Barbosa and Antonio Slides from the coaching staff were also released from their duties. Information on the successor should be announced in due course.
