Spurs, who sacked José Mourinho at the end of April, have since been looking for a manager and names have been rocketing in recent weeks. Mauricio Pochettino, Erik Ten Hag, Antonio Conte, Genarro Gattuso and Paulo Fonseca were mentioned.

It was ultimately the former coach left free by Wolverhampton who was appointed. In his four seasons at the helm of Wolves, Nuno Espirito Santo brought the second-division club to a quarter-final of the Europa League in the 2019/2020 season.

Also passed through Rio Ave, Valencia and Porto, Espirito Santo, 47, enjoys a great reputation as a tactician and developer of young talents, like his compatriots Diogo Jota or Ruben Neves, or even Adama Traoré and Raul Jimenez.
