Ole Gunnar Solskjaer reacts as latest EPL manager is sacked

 

A message of support to former Tottenham boss Nuno Espirito Santo has come the way of Manchester United manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer after the Portuguese was fired by the north London club on Monday morning.

Nuno’s Spurs were emphatically beaten 3-0 at home by Solskjaer’s United side on Saturday, a result that has long triggered the tough decision as made by Tottenham’s hierarchy.

Meanwhile, Solskjaer who has also been under fire following some poor results at Old Trafford was however quick to send a message of support to Nuno after Spurs’ result against United on Saturday proved the final straw for the former Wolves boss especially as the north London outfit have lost six of their last 12 matches in all competitions.

Sadly, the 47-year-old Nuno lasted just four months in the position as manager at White Hart Lane and leaves with the club languishing down in the eighth place in the Premier League table, ten points adrift of leaders Chelsea.

Widespread reports reaching National Daily indicate that ex-Inter Milan, Chelsea and Juventus head coach Conte, 52, is poised to succeed Nuno at the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium.

It’s understood Conte caught a flight to London earlier today and the fiery Italian could be in the dugout when Spurs take on Everton at Goodison Park this weekend.

Meanwhile, Solskjaer who was the last manager to face Nuno as Spurs boss was laid-back when he was pressed on his counterpart’s sacking while speaking to the media ahead of Manchester United’s Champions League clash with Atalanta.

‘It is never nice to see men, good men, lose their jobs,’ the United boss said.

‘I don’t know the situation at Tottenham so can’t comment too much.

‘But as a colleague you are never happy when that happens.’

Tottenham however have passed on their best wishes to Nuno and his team in a brief statement confirming his exit on their official website.

‘I know how much Nuno and his coaching staff wanted to succeed and I regret that we have had to take this decision,’ it said.

‘Nuno is a true gentleman and will always be welcome here. We should like to thank him and his coaching staff and wish them well for the future.’
