Who was Spurs manager last season? Find out who managed Tottenham in the 2020/21 season
After seeing Nuno Espirito Santo falter at Tottenham Hotspur this campaign, fans must be wondering who was Spurs manager last season so they can compare and contrast the Portuguese’s record with his predecessor. Lucky for you, Alley Sport has the answer and statistics that answer all your questions about Spurs managers in the recent past.
Who was Spurs manager last season?
Jose Mourinho was largely the manager of Spurs last season. The Portuguese international actually took over the helm from Mauricio Pochettino when the Argentine was let go by the club in November 2019. The Argentine had built an excellent Tottenham side and even led them to the UEFA Champions League final that year.
But apparently, the board thought that Mourinho was the man to take them to the next level. After all, he was a proven winner at top clubs like FC Porto, Real Madrid, Inter Milan, Chelsea, and Manchester United. And it was Mourinho who managed Spurs up until April 2021.
Levy then sacked the Portuguese maestro because of backroom clashes just a few days before the club’s first chance at winning a trophy in 13 years when they took on Manchester City in the EFL Cup final. But as it turned out, they went on to lose with an interim manager in charge.
Who was Spurs manager last season after Jose Mourinho was sacked?
Spurs appointed Ryan Mason as interim manager after Mourinho was sacked with immediate effect. The 29-year-old was never really seen as a permanent solution and it screamed of Levy’s lack of belief in the season as he almost gave up all hopes of a trophy.
Mason was finally relieved of his duties not long after the season ended and was given a smaller role in the backroom staff. Their search for a new manager led them to many big names such as Julian Nagelsmann, Paulo Fonseca, and even Antonio Conte.
But as it turned out, former Wolves manager Nuno Espirito Santo took over the helm before the start of the new season and is the current Spurs manager. Sadly for him, he is having a rancid September after an impressive start to life at N17 where he won three out of three games in the PL.
Mourinho, meanwhile, is managing AS Roma while Pochettino has a super team at his disposal at PSG in Ligue 1.
