Tottenham Hotspur journalist Alasdair Gold has been speaking on his latest YouTube video to discuss the ’s ongoing search for a new permanent manager.  

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?

Yes

Yes

No

No

Spurs have been without a permanent manager since the back-end of April when Jose Mourinho was sacked in the same week their Carabao Cup final.  

Conte recently resigned as the manager of the newly-crowned Serie A champions over a reported disagreement in regard to the club’s policy ahead of this summer’s window.  

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.  

Conte is clearly a brilliant manager having won major trophies at Juventus, and Inter. During his time at , he got his hands on the Premier League title and .  

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.
