After being rejected by a host of names in the management world, Tottenham Hotspur finally agreed terms with former Wolves coach Nuno Espirito Santo.
The Portuguese will be in charge at Spurs on a two-year contract.
Nuno departed Wolves in May following four successful seasons that saw the team rise from the Championship to a Europa League quarter-final.
Spurs fired Jose Mourinho in April and replaced him temporarily with Ryan Mason, a 29-year-old.
Ryan Mason didn’t look like getting the job on a permanent basis but the comedy that followed the coaching search left too much to be desired.
Antonio Conte, Julian Lopetegui and Steven Gerrard all rejected the job offer. Spurs will always be Spurs you know.
Speaking with the club's official website on his appointment, Nuno said: “When you have a squad with quality and talent, we want to make the fans proud and enjoy. It’s an enormous pleasure and honour (to be here), there’s joy and I’m happy and looking forward to starting work. We don’t have any days to lose and we must start working immediately as pre-season starts in a few days.”
