Tottenham Hotspur journalist Alasdair Gold has been sharing his thoughts on the possibility of current Wolves manager Nuno Espirito Santo potentially being named as the north London club’s next permanent manager after their sacking of Jose Mourinho.
This comes after Gold made an appearance on a recent Facebook Live video from Football.London where he spoke about a variety of topics concerning the Lilywhites.
During the video, Gold was asked his thoughts on the possibility of Espirito Santo being offered the job at Tottenham, with the Wolves man being recently linked with the position.
In response, Gold had this to say on the matter. (23.05)
He said: “I don’t think so. I don’t think he’s quite exactly what they’re looking for in their next style of play and the manager and all that sort of stuff. That’s only from what I understand.
“He’s had a funny season at Wolves, he’s been very unfortunate. Obviously, the Raul Jimenez injury was horrific for the player obviously, but also really affected, I think, Wolves and their potency and the way they attack, and they’ve had a very mixed kind of season.
“I can’t see that one.”
Since being appointed as Wolves’ manager back in 2017, Espirito Santo has taken charge of 195 games with the Midlands club, winning 95, drawing 46 and losing 54 in the process (per Transfermarkt).
TIF Thoughts on Alasdair Gold’s comments on Espirito Santo…
Given how Espirito Santo has taken Wolves to 12th place in the Premier League at this point in the current season, compared to him having finished with them in 7th place in their previous two league campaigns, it’s easy to see why Gold has some doubts over his capabilities of leading Spurs going off what he has done with Wolves this year.
Do you think Nuno could be a good fit at Spurs?
Also, given how Espirito Santo hasn’t managed to win any trophies with the Old Gold since their return to the Premier League, either domestically or otherwise, this could well cast a question mark over his suitability to manage Spurs, in our view.
