Tottenham have terminated Nuno Espirito Santo’s contract less than five months after appointing him as head coach.

He originally made a name for himself in Spain, where he played for three teams in five years. He eventually returned to Portugal to play for Porto, as well as professionally in Russia; he was a member of the Portuguese squad at UEFA Euro 2008, but never received a cap for his country.

Tottenham sits in eighth place in the Premier League, 10 points behind champions Chelsea after a 3-0 home loss to Manchester United on Saturday.

Nuno signed a two-year contract in June after a lengthy hunt for Jose Mourinho’s replacement.

Spurs are on the lookout for their fourth permanent manager in three years, following Nuno’s departure from Wolves in May after four seasons in command.

Fabio Paratici, Tottenham Managing Director, Football, said: “I know how much Nuno and his coaching staff wanted to succeed and I regret that we have had to take this decision.

“Nuno is a true gentleman and will always be welcome here. We should like to thank him and his coaching staff and wish them well for the future.”

Spurs’ next match is a Europa Conference League match against Vitesse Arnhem at home on Thursday, followed by a Premier League match against Everton on Sunday.
