Wolverhampton Wanderers manager Nuno Espirito Santo is unlikely to become the next permanent Tottenham Hotspur boss according to reports in Portugal.

The 47-year-old has recently been linked with a move to north London.

A report from 90min last month claimed he was admired by Spurs officials, and there was another report just last week from the Express.

Now Jose Mourinho has been sacked, speculation has been rife about who’ll be next in the hotseat – and some Wolves fans have worried they’ll target Nuno.

But according to Correio de Manha, it’s not likely for Nuno to head to the capital.

That’s because his agent Jorge Mendes isn’t keen for him to take the same path as Mourinho.

 

It’s explained Mendes didn’t actually want Mourinho to go to Spurs when he did, but The Special One went against his representative’s advice.

Nuno surely not leaving anytime soon

It’s been a pretty underwhelming season for a variety of reasons.

But one gets the feeling that Nuno will be determined to get the team back in and around those European positions next term.

There is still plenty of reason for him to stay at Molineux, and he probably thinks that too, otherwise he wouldn’t have signed his contract last year.

Furthermore, if the Super League comes to fruition, there’s certainly no way he’d be jumping ship to go manage Tottenham.
