NUNO ESPIRITO SANTO has already transformed Tottenham’s dressing room… by turning the floor into a PITCH.
The Portuguese tactician has only been in his new job for a month.

But Nuno is making an immediate impression on his players by revolutionising tactical talks on match days.
And players will have a perfect view as Nuno shows them his plans to take down opponents on home turf.
The gaffer demonstrated his worth at Wolves by transforming them from a struggling Championship outfit into an established Premier League force.
And Tottenham fans will be hoping that Nuno’s outside-the-box thinking can yield similar results in north London.
Nuno’s first summer at Wolves saw 17 players come and go.
And he has already overhauled Jose Mourinho’s tiring squad by parting ways with seven stars.
Carlos Vinicius and Gareth Bale were allowed to return to their parent clubs after their respective loans ended.
Meanwhile, Paulo Gazzaniga and Danny Rose were released on free transfers.
Juan Foyth was allowed to make his Villarreal loan permanent for £13.5million.
And Toby Alderweireld completed a shock £11m switch to Qatari side Al-Duhail this week.
Erik Lamela was also shown the door after eight years at Spurs, being used as part of a £22.5m deal for Sevilla winger Bryan Gil.

Nuno’s only other signing so far is a loan for Atalanta goalkeeper Pierluigi Gollini.
But former teammate Cristian Romero looks set to join shortly, along with Bologna’s Takehiro Tomiyasu and possibly Fiorentina’s Nikola Milenkovic.
And with Son Heung-Min committing himself to a new contract, there’s a chance Nuno’s visionary rebuild could even persuade Harry Kane to stay.
