Posted On July 3, 2021
Tottenham have revealed their new coaching staff with Ian Cathro reconnecting with head coach Nuno Espirito Santo.
Cathro, who briefly served as Hearts head coach after working with Nuno at Rio Ave and Valencia, will serve as assistant head coach.
Rui Barbosa and Antonio Dias will also be part of Spurs’ technical staff.
All three worked with Nuno at Wolves until the end of last season and have a longer association with the Portuguese dating back to his previous clubs.
Barbosa and Dias join roles identical to those they occupied at Wolves. Barbosa will work as the goalkeeper coach, while Dias will be the fitness coach.
Nuno was confirmed on Wednesday as Tottenham’s new boss, signing a deal until 2023, as the long-term successor to Jose Mourinho.
After a stint in charge of the first team after Mourinho left, Ryan Mason has returned to his role at the academy as head of player development.
What will Nuno bring to Spurs?
Nuno Espirito Santo is Tottenham’s new head coach and many are disappointed, but does the ex-Wolves boss deserve this reaction?
Daniel Levy’s comments did not help set the stage for his arrival, according to Sky Sports writer Adam Bate.
