Solskjaer reacts to Nuno Espirito Santo’s dismissal as Tottenham boss

Manchester United boss Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has passed on a message of support to Nuno Espirito Santo after the Portuguese was sacked by Tottenham on Monday morning.

Santo was sacked by Tottenham Hotspur following their 3-0 home defeat to Manchester United on Saturday.

Widespread reports indicate that ex-Chelsea, Inter Milan and Juventus head coach Antonio Conte, who was previously rumoured to be a replacement for Solskjaer, is in line to succeed Nuno at the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium.

“It is never nice to see men, good men, lose their jobs,” Solskjaer said.

“I don’t know the situation at Tottenham so can’t comment too much.

“But as a colleague you are never happy when that happens.”
