An-Najah News - Tottenham Hotspur appointed Portuguese Nuno Espirito Santo as their new coach on Wednesday, coming from Wolverhampton, to succeed his compatriot Jose Mourinho.


Tottenham have been without a permanent coach since Mourinho was sacked last April, and former player Ryan Mason took charge of acting until the end of last season.

"When you have a team of quality and talent, we want to make the fans feel proud and enjoy," said Nuno, 47, who has signed a two-year contract with the London club.


He added: "It is a great pleasure and honor to be here, there is joy and I am happy. I am looking forward to starting work. We don't have days to waste and we have to start work immediately as the preparatory season begins in a few days."


Nuno led Wolves from the "Championship" (actually the second division) to the Premier League, and finished his two seasons in the Premier League in seventh place for two consecutive years.
