After days of speculation following his public outburst against the club, it was confirmed last night that Antonio Conte has left his role as head coach of Spurs.
Tottenham confirmed the news on their official website that Conte has left via mutual consent and his assistant Cristian Stellini will manage the team until the end of the season, supported by Ryan Mason, while various options are being considered for next season.
According to Calciomercato.com, Mauricio Pochettino is the favourite now Thomas Tuchel has chosen Bayern Munich, but on that theme Julian Nagelsmann could be an option too. Roberto De Zerbi is flying with Brighton and could be a good fit, while Luciano Spalletti may also be considered.
Regarding Conte, he has made it clear that he wants to return to Italy to be close to his family, perhaps living between Milan and Turin. Therefore, it is no coincidence that he has three preferences for his next job: Inter, Juventus or Milan.
Areturn to Inter could materialise due to his relationship with Beppe Marotta, but the coach would want guarantees of ambition that the owners might not be able to match, while Juve hold a place in his heart and he would go back regardless.
Milan are the most complicated track, but it is no coincidence that Conte spoke well of the club during their meeting in the Champions League. However, the Rossoneri have a plan that is very similar to the one he is abandoning at Spurs, promoting financial prudence over big spending.
i think this only media bluff.. while conte must have big money from the management, otherside milan have limited budget..
Brighton was always going to perform well this season. All they needed was a half decent coach. Potter has them hanging with the big boys before his move to Chelsea messed them up for a bit. But the squad was already well gelled
Conte are good coach . But he not fit with owner policy . Conte always fight with owner, thats why he never stay too long in one club. Owner redbird policy are healthy finance so only coach with low budget allowed here
Hasn’t that been his story at EVERY club he’s been at? He was even at Chelsea, who don’t have budget issues. Notice how he hasn’t been in charge of any other top 4 clubs outside Italy and Chelsea? That’s because he’s not that good. Wouldn’t expect Madrid, Bayern or City to call him any time soon. I don’t think we’re missing out, but more likely dodging a bullet. Also, who wants us to park the bus?
