According to the publication, Levy must now decide whether to fire Nuno who has picked just five wins from their opening five Premier League matches.

Should the north London club reach the decision of sacking Nuno now, the former Wolves boss would go down as the shortest-serving manager in the history of Tottenham.

French boss Jacques Santini currently holds that record having been relieved of his duties after just 155 days back in November 2004.

Meanwhile, Nuno's uncertain future with Spurs comes only days after he was booed by the club's support base who called for his sacking.

The 47-year-old was appointed to the role in the summer and has been in charge for 17 games.

Tottenham currently find themselves sitting eighth on the log with 15 points, five off a top-four place.

However, a section of fans who turned up to cheer the team in north London were still not contented with the win as they shouted down Solskjaer as he had his post-match interview with MUTV.
