Daniel Levy was ‘furious’ after Spurs’ defeat to Man Utd with Nuno on the brink

Daniel Levy was reportedly 'furious' following Tottenham Hotspur's 3-0 home loss to Manchester United on Saturday with manager Nuno Espirito Santo on the brink of being sacked.

Goals from Cristiano Ronaldo, Edinson Cavani and Marcus Rashford condemned Spurs to their fifth league defeat of the season, leaving them eighth in the table.

This defeat comes after last weekend's defeat to London rivals West Ham United and the recent loss to Vitesse Arnhem in the Europa Conference League.

It is now understood that Nuno is running out of time at Spurs, having already been close to the sack already this season.

The Telegraph report that Levy was furious with the loss to United, having already been concerned by the club's performances and results under Nuno.

The former Wolves boss was only appointed Spurs manager in the summer but sources at the club reportedly believe he is close to being dismissed.

The Spurs fans appeared to turn on him as the club laboured to defeat on Saturday evening, with chants of "You don't know what you're doing".

In addition, fans called for Levy to sack Nuno and boos were also aimed at striker Harry Kane, who has just one league goal so far this season.

Three wins from three to start the season had left Spurs top of the table at the end of August but crushing defeats to Crystal Palace, Chelsea and Arsenal in September brought them followed.

It is understood that these results had put the Portuguese head coach on the brink of losing his job before a home win over Aston Villa at the start of this month.

The last three results have increased the pressure on Nuno, though, ahead of Thursday's home match with Vitesse.

Spurs currently sit outside the qualification spots in their Conference League group after three matches, despite being one of the favourites to win the competition.

Failure to progress from a group that also contains Stade Rennais and Slovenian side Mura would likely spell the end for Nuno in north London.
