Nuno Espirito Santo, who was sacked by Tottenham Hotspur last year, is expected to get his first job since then.
Antonio Conte took over as Tottenham manager in early November of 2021 after just a few months in charge of the club.
To be sure, the former Wolverhampton Wanderers midfielder, who was instrumental in securing the club’s promotion to the Premier League and subsequently keeping them there, is about to embark on a new challenge.
French media outlet Foot Mercato claims that Al-Ittihad, the Saudi Arabian league’s newest club, is close to hiring Nuno as manager.
Nuno has fallen from grace if that’s the case, as he was linked with Burnley just a few months ago.
In terms of salary, the 48-year-old could definitely outperform the younger players in his position.
In spite of his failures at Tottenham and Wolves, he has proven himself to be an excellent manager and it would have been interesting to see him take on another Premier League challenge.
His future as an English footballer is still open, no matter what happens in Saudi Arabia.
After all, the level of football played here is significantly higher than that played in the Middle East, and this is true for both the coaches and the players.
