Tottenham on Wednesday announced the appointment of former Wolves boss, Nuno Espirito Santo, as their new manager, ending their long search for a replacement for Jose Mourinho.

Tottenham have been without a permanent manager since Mourinho was sacked in April, with former player Ryan Mason taking charge for the rest of last season.

Nuno, 47, has penned a two-year deal at the north London club.

“When you have a squad with quality and talent, we want to make the fans proud and enjoy,” he said.

“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.”

Nuno guided Wolves from the Championship into the Premier League and secured consecutive seventh-place finishes in their first two seasons back in the top flight.

“First of all, I’d like to welcome Nuno to the club,” said chairman Daniel Levy. “We should like to thank our supporters for all their patience throughout this process.

“I’ve spoken already about the need to revert back to our core DNA of playing attacking, entertaining football, Fabio Paratici (managing director, football) and I believe Nuno is the man who can take our talented group of players, embrace our young players coming through and build something special.”
