Nuno Espirito Santo's sacking celebrated by Tottenham fans

‘YES! The news we needed’: Tottenham fans celebrate the sacking of boss Nuno Espirito Santo after a dismal 17-game spell – before calling on Daniel Levy to ‘show ambition’ and get Antonio Conte as his replacement

  • Tottenham SACK Nuno Espirito Santo after just four months in charge of the club
  • Nuno went from Manager of the Month to being sacked in a matter of weeks
  • Fans were left delighted at the news as a wave of positivity surfaced online
  • Antonio Conte, Graham Potter and Erik ten Hag are among wanted candidates

Tottenham fans were left celebrating the sacking of doomed boss Nuno Espirito Santo – before turning to the charm offensive to get Antonio Conte in as his successor.  

Sportsmail exclusively revealed that Nuno had been sacked on Monday morning by Tottenham after just four months in charge.

Nuno, 47, was appointed on a two-year deal in June but he never looked comfortable in the job and now finds himself out of work after 17 games. 

Tottenham’s depressing 3-0 loss to Manchester United on Saturday proved a fatal blow to Nuno’s hopes of staying in charge, with the atmosphere turning toxic towards the former Wolves boss inside the stadium.

A large number of fans were pleased with the club taking decisive action to get rid of Nuno

One popular meme showed a fan with heartburn but he recovered with Antonio Conte as boss

Rivals also got in on the act with an Arsenal fan highlighting four big-game defeats for Nuno

Fans were quick to celebrate the news and rivals also poked fun at Spurs’ latest haphazard appointment. 

‘YES! The news we needed,’ wrote one ecstatic Spurs fan. 

Memes soon dominated Twitter with one showing a man suffering from heartburn, which was used and captioned to show Tottenham under Nuno.

Below the same man feels significantly better and that is tabbed up as life under Conte, who is the bookmakers’ favourite for the job.

One fan used a famous GIF of LeBron James during his days with the Miami Heat when he said: ‘It’s about damn time!’

A grab of Lucas Moura’s ‘Take the L’ celebration came back to bite him as it was used by fans

Lucas Moura’s ‘Take the L’ celebration against Crystal Palace last season, long before Nuno arrived, became a popular reaction to the club’s statement confirming his departure. 

‘Hold this Nuno,’ one fan wrote along with the Lucas Moura photo. 

One Arsenal fan wrote ‘thanks for the memories Nuno’ accompanied of four photos of Spurs losing to Arsenal, Chelsea, Crystal Palace and Manchester United.

Some showed a level of sympathy for Nuno and said that he was doomed from the off with this current squad, now far off the level of the Mauricio Pochettino team that got to the 2019 Champions League final. 

‘What a disastrous appointment,’ one fan wrote. ‘Funny thing is everyone knew it wasn’t a good one when he signed.’

Another added: ‘Just wasn’t right for Spurs but I believe he’s been hung out to dry a bit with poor recruitment but doesn’t excuse results and performances!

Some fans had a more measured take and felt Nuno was destined to fail when he arrived

There were multiple calls for the board to ‘show ambition’ and make Conte their next boss

This season is in disarray after losing to Man United and Tottenham must get a successor right

‘The club have to get this right and quickly!’

Chairman Daniel Levy was not absolved of blame for the disappointment of Nuno’s short tenure given it was he who hired the Portuguese to replace Jose Mourinho. 

‘One gone… two more to go,’ read one tweet, accompanied with two clown emojis.

The photo that accompanied that tweet showed owner Joe Lewis and chairman Levy labelled as ‘the problem’. 

Below them was nine managers which preceded Nuno and, in the eyes of the fan, they are ‘not the problem’ to the club’s troubles.   

One fan posted that managers are not the problem, rather Joe Lewis (top) and Daniel Levy (top)
