Daniel Levy has thanked Tottenham Hotspur for their patience during Tottenham Hotspur’s ten week search for a new head coach.

Spurs have been without a manager since Levy took the decision to sack Jose Mourinho with the club having already been knocked out of the Europa League and were in seventh place in the Premier League table at the time of his dismissal.

After appointing former Wolverhampton Wanderers boss Nuno Espirito Santo as the man to succeed Mourinho, Levy believes that the 47-year-old has all of the qualities to meet the requirements he outlined to supporters.

Nuno was said not to have originally been a candidate following his exit from Molineux, with Spurs deciding to persue other candidates (Evening Standard).

Levy once again referenced the need for the new man to work with the club’s younger players along with the current talent within the squad.

Nuno is set for a baptism of fire in his first game which will see the visit of Premier League champions Manchester City to North London.

Levy told the official Spurs site: “First of all, I’d like to welcome Nuno to the Club. 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 and Fabio 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.”
