Tottenham ‘working hard’ to appoint Antonio Conte as Paratici loses patience with Nuno | Football | Sport
Tottenham’s humiliating 3-0 home defeat to Manchester United on Saturday eased the pressure on Ole Gunnar Solskjaer and heaped more damage upon Nuno Espirito Santo. And with the Portuguese manager underperforming in his role in north London, reports have surfaced that Spurs are forcing a move for Italian manager Antonio Conte to replace him.
Goals from Cristiano Ronaldo, Edinson Cavani and Marcus Rashford confined Nuno to yet another loss as Tottenham fell to eighth in the Premier League table.
The Lilywhites are set to end the gameweek in ninth place after Everton vs Wolves takes place on Monday, which Spurs bosses will deem as unacceptable.
It is a real hero to zero story for Nuno, who had Tottenham in first place at the end of August following three wins from three in the league, including an impressive win over Manchester City.
However, current performances will have club chiefs fretting over the long-term future of the north London outfit.
And according to a report from TuttoMercato, club chiefs are working desperately hard to bring in Antonio Conte to replace the former Wolves boss.
Conte, 52, managed Chelsea for two years from 2016-2018, winning the Premier League in his first season as Blues boss before being sacked after finisihing fifth the season after, despite winning the FA Cup.
The Italian is famed for his at the back formations which served him extremely well at Chelsea and last season at Inter Milan – where he won them the Serie A title for the first time in 11 years before resigning over budget issues.
Having also won the Serie A title three times with Juventus from 2012 to 2014, the former Italy international has one of the best managerial records in world football.
And his pedigree is enough for Tottenham to want to sack Nuno despite only being four months into his contract and bring in Conte as his replacement.
A move for Conte would bring about a franticness to the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium, with the Italian renowned for being a figure who possesses a controversial manner.
And it would spell the end of rumours linking him to Manchester United to replace Ole Gunnar Solskjaer.
Solskjaer’s men took on Tottenham yesterday in north London and emerged victorious.
Spurs have yet to register a shot on target in the last two hours and 16 minutes of Premier League football.
And by dropping to ninth from first in the space of eight games, there are fears the side will slide further down the table if Nuno continues to manage the club.
The Portuguese manager will lead his side out against Everton next weekend in a bid to climb the table.
