Nuno Espirito Santo wasn’t close to Tottenham’s first choice this summer, and it’s imperative that Spurs’ cut his reign atop the North London Club short. 

Tottenham’s farcical choice to find a new manager was mercifully ended with Nuno Espirito Santo’s appointment this summer. Appointing the former Wolves boss stopped the bleeding for Spurs, but the squad’s wounds have opened up again and it’s time for Daniel Levy to make yet another managerial change.

It’s not a decision that Levy or anyone at the club will enter into lightly. Tottenham have changed gaffers far too often in recent years. Only Mauricio Pochettino really seemed to gain a stable footing under Levy’s regime at the height of his tenure in North London. Everyone else has seemed to consistently reside on thin ice.

That doesn’t mean Nuno deserves more time. The club’s 1-0 loss to West Ham on the weekend should be the final straw. It’s time for #NunoOut to go from a Twitter trend to a Premier League reality. Here are the top five reasons why an immediate change is necessary.

5. Nuno lacks self-awareness

Nuno’s belief that Tottenham were the “better team” against West Ham proves just how out of touch with the squad’s reality he really is. At best, Spurs could have argued they deserved a draw against their London rivals.

This isn’t the first time Nuno’s view on a match has differed drastically from the fan base’s point of view. Tottenham supporters seem to have higher expectations than the club’s manager. That’s one great reason to sack Nuno.
