Nuno wasn’t given Mourinho’s old office in embarrassing Tottenham snub

Nuno Espirito Santo was given a smaller office compared with other Tottenham managers during his short-lived stint in charge.

The revelation has emerged following the news that the Portuguese coach was given his marching orders on Monday morning after seeing his side slump to a 3-0 home defeat to Manchester United.

The loss marked a fifth in Tottenham’s last seven league outings and left the club languishing down in ninth in the Premier League table, ten points adrift of table-toppers Chelsea.

Former Wolves boss Nuno was only appointed in June but saw his two-year contract with Spurs brought to an early end only four months into the job.

Nuno has been widely criticised for his defensive style of play and for dividing his Spurs squad, and it has now been revealed that he wasn’t given the same luxuries as the managers before him.

According to The Athletic, when the Portuguese coach arrived at Tottenham’s plush training facilities of Hotspur Way, he was allocated a smaller manager’s office space compared with the likes of Mauricio Pochettino and Jose Mourinho.

Nuno and his staff were reportedly left to huddled around a table in the coaches’ office, which adjoined Nuno’s designated room, rather than being allowed the space and comfort of an open-plan office area.

Is Nuno Espirito Santo Tottenham's worst ever Premier League manager? Let us know in the comments section below.

The reshuffle came as a result of Fabio Paratici’s arrival following his appointment as Tottenham’s new director of football back in June.

The Italian football chief ended his 11-year stay in Turin with Juventus to take up his position at Spurs and now looks set to be reunited with a familiar face in Nuno’s imminently arriving successor.

Antonio Conte, who looks set to be announced as the new Tottenham manager any time now, previously worked together with Paratici at Italian giants Juventus.

Conte initially refused the Spurs job this summer after talks broke down over the club’s vision, recruitment strategy and designated transfer budget, but he has now been given assurances.

While Tottenham have bowed down to Conte’s demands on the financial front in order to bring him in, it is yet to be seen whether they will allow him a more sizeable office space, too.
