Former Tottenham manager Nunu Santo knocks on the European stage again.
Portuguese media ‘Ojogo’ said on the 16th (Korean time), “Coach Nunu, who is currently leading Al Ittihad in Saudi Arabia, has received an interesting offer from a European team. Director Noonu reported that as soon as this season is over, he intends to terminate the contract with Al Ittihad and return to Europe.”
Coach Noonu took the helm of Saudi Arabia’s prestigious team Al Ittihad just before the start of the 2022-23 season. He signed a two-year contract in this capacity and agreed to lead Al Ittihad until the summer of 2024. It is director Nunu who is pushing for a return to Europe at the point where less than half of his contract period has passed.
His leadership was recognized from his first season in Saudi Arabia. Al Ittihad is currently in first place with 62 points from 26 league matches this season. Cristiano Ronaldo’s team Al Nasr (57 points) ranked second. With only 4 games left, Al Ittihad are likely to win.
Before going to Saudi Arabia, coach Nuno took the helm of Tottenham in the English Premier League (EPL). Ahead of the 2021-22 season, he left Wolverhampton and took the position of manager of Tottenham. Manager Noonu generated great anticipation by beating Manchester City 1-0 in the opening game. Son Heung-min scored the winning goal in this match 안전놀이터.
The joy of three consecutive wins at the beginning of the league did not last long. Tottenham immediately met Crystal Palace (0-3 loss), Chelsea (0-3 loss) and Arsenal (1-3 loss) and lost consecutively. Eventually, at the end of October, he lost 0-3 against Manchester United and was hardened. Director Noonu, who resigned in disgrace after 4 months, took a break for about 9 months before meeting a turning point in Saudi Arabia.
