Contact To Negotiate For Managerial Position
The coach, who left Tottenham after just four months, is in negotiations to return to the English Premier League (EPL) stage.
Britain’s Metro reported on the 19th that Nottingham Forest is negotiating with former Tottenham manager Nunu Santo to replace Steve Cooper.
Tottenham looked for a new manager to fill the vacancy of Jose Mourinho, who they replaced ahead of the 2021-2022 season. Tottenham’s eyes were on Nunu.
Tottenham had no hesitation in appointing Nunu, who had no big club experience, as Nunu led Wolverhampton in the past and showed a reversal with tight defensive football in the EPL.
However, Nunu and Tottenham Hotspur did not stay together for long. Having started the season with three consecutive wins, Nunu and Tottenham were in good mood as they won the Coach of the Month award in the first month. However, consecutive losses followed immediately, and fans were greatly disappointed by their frustrating performance. In the end, after losing 0-3 to Manchester United, Tottenham replaced Nunu. They had to leave the team after filling in only four months out of the two years of their contract.
Nunu, who left Tottenham, had not been in charge for a while, but headed to Saudi Arabia in July, where he attracted famous players and coaches. He was appointed as the head coach of Al-Itihad, which recruited Karim Benzema and N’Golo Kante. In Saudi Arabia, his coaching career ended in four months. Rumors of Karim Benzema’s discord and league performance have hampered him.
Surprisingly, the team reached out again to Nunu, who was resting. The club that offered him the managerial position was Nottingham, which lost 0-2 to Tottenham in the previous league game. Nottingham remains 17th in this season under Steve Cooper, with only three wins, five draws and nine losses. If he fails to rebound, he could fall to the relegation zone anytime.
Metro said, “The owner of Evangelos Marinakis seems to have put a substitute on standby in case he decides to replace Cooper. Nunu is the best candidate to replace Cooper, and the club is known to be already in talks with Nunu,” explaining that Nunu could return to the EPL as Nottingham manager. 스포츠토토
