Nuno Espirito Santo is reportedly set to land his first job since being fired by Tottenham Hotspur last year.

The Portuguese manager lasted for months as Spurs boss, before being replaced by Antonio Conte in early November 2021.

However, the former Wolverhampton Wanderers man, who secured Premier League promotion for the Molineux outfit and kept them in the top flight, is on the verge of a new adventure.

According to French outlet Foot Mercato, Nuno is ‘closer’ to being appointed as manager of Al-Ittihad in the Saudi Arabian league.

If that’s true, it’s quite a fall for Nuno, who joined Burnley a few months ago.

It is likely that he will earn a pretty decent salary, but in terms of competition, the 48-year-old can certainly do better.

Despite his failure at Tottenham, his success at Wolves is proof that he is still a very capable manager and it will be interesting to see him take on another Premier League role.

Whatever happens in Saudi Arabia, English football may still – and probably will – return one day.

After all, this is a far more challenging level of football than in the Middle East and the same is true for the people in the dugout as it is on the field.
