Tottenham players should be ‘ashamed’ after Nuno Espirito Santo sacked as Daniel Levy urged to prosecute Antonio Conte

Tottenham players have been told they should be “ashamed” of themselves following the sacking of Nuno Espirito Santo.
Spurs made the decision to remove Nuno on Monday after just 10 Premier League games in charge, following a dismal 3-0 home loss to Manchester United.
Fans booed the team off the field as frustrations boiled over after another disappointing display on Saturday.
Spurs have been lackluster on the pitch and talkSPORT’s Alex Crook reported on Sunday that players have not enjoyed his training regime and have not warmed up the Portuguese coach.
Reacting to the news, former Premier League stars Trevor Sinclair and Jamie O’Hara said players should watch each other.
Sinclair said, “He’s very unlucky. Five wins, five losses. 10 games to get in the job, I think players should be embarrassed by what they gave him.
“You have players who have come like [Cristian] Romero, he has a lot to say [Pablo] Fornals on the pitch, but the ability they have shown and their desire to win football games for Tottenham, I haven’t seen that.
“It’s not just a man who loses his job, which is why I hate to talk about managers losing their jobs.
“It’s a group of men who got involved and gave this commitment to Nuno. They have probably all left their homes and families and were all fired this morning.
“I think it’s absolutely shameful of Tottenham.”
Former Tottenham O’Hara midfielder added: “The players should be ashamed of themselves. Ultimately, as a manager, you rely on 11 other guys to go out there and do a performance for you.
“They didn’t do it for him. They weren’t good enough. Whether you like him or not or you don’t like his training, as a player you go out there and give your all on the football field.
“The Spurs players did not and that is unacceptable.”
Attention will now turn to who could replace Nuno, with the club confident in nominating Antonio Conte.
The Italian is believed to be their main target, with Brighton manager Graham Potter and ex-Roma boss Paulo Fonseca also linked in the now vacant post.
O’Hara added, “I would absolutely love Graham Potter, but that won’t happen. He runs the ship in Brighton, he runs everything there.
“He has his team however they want and I’m telling you now, forget about Graham Potter.” It doesn’t happen.
“I think you could possibly go with Fonseca and maybe seduce him again. I know they have already discussed.
“Personally, I would try to get Antonio Conte. You must have it because it is so good.
