BREAKING: Antonio Conte has been offered an 18-month contract by Tottenham, according to Sky in Italy.— Sky Sports News (@SkySportsNews) November 1, 2021
Nuno Espirito Santo has been sacked by Tottenham after only four months in charge, with Antonio Conte set to be drafted in as his replacement. Nuno was appointed permanent successor to Jose Mourinho in June, with Spurs handing him an initial two-year contract.
That agreement has been terminated early in the wake of the 3-0 home defeat to Manchester United, which leaves the north London outfit 10 points adrift of Premier League leaders Chelsea after 10 games. Conte will succeed Nuno after holding positive talks with the north London club, and flew into England on Monday for further discussions with an official announcement expected ahead of their next Premier League fixture against Everton.
