A few Tottenham supporters have expressed strong opinions on the club’s interest in taking Nuno Espirito Santo on as their new manager.
football.london understands that Fabio Paratici likes Espirito Santo and him potentially becoming a candidate is yet to be ruled out.
The same report suggests that leading figures at the north London club are still determined to try and bring Mauricio Pochettino back to N17 for a second spell after being sacked in 2019.
Some Spurs fans, it’s safe to say, are not best pleased with the latest links to Espirito Santo, with one user on Twitter even suggesting they would rather Ryan Mason takes permanent charge after his interim spell as boss.
Tottenham sacked Jose Mourinho in mid-April and since then, it’s been a manic couple of months in the search for a new manager.
Pochettino was the club’s first-choice, football.london understands, but Paris Saint-Germain have a very stubborn stance and were determined not to let the Argentine coach return to the Premier League.
Then, with Antonio Conte becoming a free agent following his departure from Inter Milan, Spurs looked to bring the former Chelsea head coach to the club.

However, talks with Conte broke down despite a deal being close.
So Spurs, with Paratici being appointed as Managing Director of Football at the club, looked to bring in former Roma manager Paulo Fonseca, but again, negotiations broke down.
Tottenham then acted quickly and wanted Gennaro Gattuso as the new permanent manager, but a massive fan backlash quickly derailed those plans, which left Spurs back at square one.
