Sacked Tottenham boss Nuno at odds with Mendes over Prem hopes

Sacked Tottenham boss Nuno is determined to make a return to the Premier League.

But the Portuguese coach's agent Jorge Mendes is eyeing up a move to France – with Lyon and Lille possible destinations, says The Sun.

Nuno lasted just four months at Tottenham after joining from Wolves in the summer – losing five of his 10 Premier League games in charge.

He is now open to waiting for another managerial opening in the Prem with five sackings – including his own – already being made this season.

Nuno was not in the running for the recently vacant Norwich and Aston Villa positions, taken by Dean Smith and Steven Gerrard respectively.

But super-agent Mendes – who had eyed a new role for then-Wolves boss Nuno way back in January before landing his client the Spurs job in June – believes France is more viable.
