The north London club’s search is reportedly getting closer to its conclusion, with former Inter manager Antonio Conte apparently close to being appointed.
Would Conte be a success at Tottenham?
Discussing the Italian manager, Gold insisted Conte is very close to becoming the next Tottenham manager.
He said: “So Antonio Conte, from what I understand, is close to being named the manager of Tottenham Hotspur, which is crazy in a good way and a fascinating way.
“We’re going to have a little chat about all the different sides to it. As a journalist, [I’m] very excited about it because it’s someone completely different.
“He’s a very charming yet volatile character, I know people that have covered him in the past, both in England and Italy as well. He’s going to be absolutely fascinating.
“And I understand it is now, barring a disaster, you know, which still can happen. But barring a disaster, it’s just going to be a case of now finalising the little finer details and Antonio Conte will be named as the next Tottenham Hotspur manager.”
TIF Thoughts on Conte as Spurs manager…
We think, in a similar way to Mourinho, this is not a typical Tottenham appointment.
However, Conte has proven he needs financial backing. Granted, the clubs he has been at have sold players to generate funds, but looking at the Spurs squad, it is hard to see realistic departures which could generate big money – apart from Harry Kane, perhaps.
If Conte is to become the next Tottenham manager, it could make for an interesting summer transfer window at Spurs.
