The Portuguese’s departure from Wolves was a slight surprise, having led them to the Premier League to begin with, followed by two back to back 7th place finishes in 2018-19 and 2019-20. But Levy snatched up the opportunity to take on another Portuguese manager, and he will be hoping Nuno fares better than his predecessor – Jose Mourinho. Here we analyze Nuno’s potential tactics at Tottenham, and the chances of the manager and club working harmoniously together as one.
