Tottenham Hotspur manager Nuno Espirito Santo during the pre-season friendly match between Colchester United and Tottenham Hotspur, July 2021.

Comparing Nuno’s record at Spurs with their last 5 managers

Tottenham have announced the sacking of manager Nuno Espirito Santo following a disappointing start to the season. 

Having only been appointed in July 2021, Nuno failed to win over Spurs fans after a string of bad results and even worse performances. He leaves the club having the shortest reign of any permanent Spurs manager since Jacques Santini.

But how does his record compare to Tottenham’s last five full-time appointments? We’ve crunched the numbers to find out.

Note: Games from all competitions are included and any match that resulted in a penalty shoot-out has been marked as a draw.
