Chelsea boss Thomas Tuchel has passed on a message of support to Nuno Espirito Santo after the Portuguese was sacked by Tottenham on Monday morning.
Nuno Santo only lasted four months as Tottenham Hotspur boss and was sacked after Saturday’s 3-0 home defeat to Manchester United.
Widespread reports indicate that ex-Chelsea, Inter Milan and Juventus head coach Conte, 52, is in line to succeed Nuno at the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium.
Asked about Nuno’s dismissal and the potential appointment of Conte as Tottenham boss, Tuchel said: “I got the news today that one of my colleagues got sacked which is not good news and never nice to hear.
“But you will understand that I will never comment on other clubs’ decisions on coaches and I will not take part in any speculation and give comments on that.”
