Jose Mourinho has sent his support to compatriot Nuno Espirito Santo after his sacking at Tottenham.

Nuno was removed from his position as head coach on Monday, after just ten games in charge of the club following his arrival in the summer.

He enjoyed a winning start to life at the club, but that quickly tailed away, with Tottenham performing poorly in the league and in Europe.

Defeat to Manchester United at the weekend led to widespread revolts from the fans, who shared their ire with the club’s management and Espirito Santo in particular.

That led to his sacking on Monday, with Antonio Conte quickly named as his replacement on Tuesday and the fourth Tottenham boss this year alone.

That’s a remarkable turnaround for any club, and Mourinho, who it should be said is hardly Conte’s biggest fan, seemingly isn’t impressed by the amount of time that was handed to his compatriot before his sacking.

“I think Conte is a good coach, but Nuno is a very good coach,” he told Sky, relayed by FC Inter News.

“He did a fantastic job at Wolverhampton for 4-5 years, not one year or a few months. That’s why I say Tottenham have a very good coach now, but they also had that with Nuno.”
