Coach of Wolverhampton competes with Klopp, Pellegrini, Pocchettino, and Sarri.
The (almost) immaculate course of Wolverhampton in December put Nuno Espírito Santo in the batch of nominees for the Premier League coaching prize of the month.
With the Portuguese coach at the helm, the wolves had four wins (Tottenham, Bournemouth, Newcastle, and Chelsea), a draw (Fulham) and a defeat (Liverpool) in the last six games, which earned him the distinction.
The former Luso international will compete with Jurgen Klopp (Liverpool), Manuel Pellegrini (West Ham), Mauricio Pochettino (Tottenham) and Maurizio Sarri (Chelsea) for the trophy, for which voting is open until Monday.
The winner will be revealed next Friday, November 11, and will succeed Rafa Benitez (Newcastle), Eddie Howe (Bournemouth), Nuno Espírito Santo (Wolverhampton) and Javi Gracia (Watford).
