On Monday November 1st 2021, the Premier League witnessed another managerial exit when North London side Tottenham Hotspurs wielded the axe on Portuguese gaffer Nuno Esprito Santo, following a run of poor results.
Nuno Esprito Santo had been in the job for just four months, before he was given the boot. He had joined the Lilywhites from fellow Premier League campaigners Wolverhampton Wanderers with whom he had spent four memorable seasons but his sojourn in North London cane to a halt sooner than expected.
Tottenham Hotspurs however have since moved on from the Portuguese, as they have secured the services of former Chelsea, Inter Milan and Italy coach Antonio Conte to be their new manager on an 18-month contract. It is expected that the Italian gaffer will use his experience and get Tottenham Hotspurs back to winning ways and win trophies most importantly.
The sacking of Nuno Esprito Santo brought the total number of managerial casualties to three for the current 2021/2022 domestic campaign.
