Tottenham managing director Fabio Paratici described Nuno Espirito Santo as “a true gentleman” after sacking him this morning.

Nuno was dismissed by Tottenham just four months after being appointed by the club following an extensive managerial search.

His coaching staff, Ian Cathro, Rui Barbosa and Antonio Dias, have also been relieved of their duties.

Nuno was Paratici’s first appointment after being hired by Tottenham this summer and the Italian has thanked him for the way he conducted himself.

“I know how much Nuno and his coaching staff wanted to succeed and I regret that we have had to take this decision,” said Paratici.

“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.”

Spurs started the season in fine form under Nuno, winning all three of their opening Premier League games.

Since then, however, their performances and results have dipped.

Tottenham suffered a 3-0 defeat to Manchester United on Saturday, with some of Nuno’s substitutions and tactical tweaks booed by home fans.
