Tottenham are considering Wolves coach Nuno Espirito Santo if they decide to sack Jose Mourinho at the end of the season.
Mourinho is under pressure for his job and could be dismissed if he fails to finish in the top four at the end of the season, with many supporters unhappy with his negative tactics and boring brand of football.
He could still save himself by winning the Carabao Cup, but his side will be second favourites when they meet Manchester City at Wembley on April 25th.
Already thoughts are turning to his potential successor, and top of Spurs wish list is Mourinho’s compatriot Espirito Santo. He has helped transform Wolves from a struggling championship side to an established Premier League team, and, although their results have been less consistent this season, they seem assured of a solid mid-tale finish.
In addition, his side lay an attractive brand of football which is a major plus to his prospective employers.
Andy is an exiled English football fan living in Cyprus. He loves all sports but football is his abiding passion, and he still has dreams every now and then about scoring the winning goal in a Wembley Cup Final, even though his playing days are long gone. He follows most major leagues, across Europe at least, and has a favoured team in each. When he’s not watching, listening, reading or downloading podcasts about football, he spend his time worrying about his beloved Arsenal.
