Spurs have been without a permanent manager since April when Daniel Levy sacked Jose Mourinho. In his place, former midfielder Ryan Mason was appointed as the interim manager until the end of the 2020/21 campaign.
Would you be happy with Conte at Spurs?
One name which has been linked with the vacant job over the past few days is that of former Chelsea manager Antonio Conte.
Conte has also been linked with a potential move to Real Madrid and discussing the Italian’s future, Roma had the following to say on the matter.
He said (8:46): “Yes, talking about managers, Antonio Conte. We have a lot of questions about Antonio Conte. What’s happening? What’s going on?
“About Antonio Conte, it’s important to clarify that in the next days he will decide about his future. If [he’s] going to one top club or waiting. Waiting, just standby for some months and then coming back in football after a fantastic season with Inter.”
TIF Thoughts on Conte’s future…
One thing which Conte has going for him is the success he has enjoyed at the clubs he has managed. The Italian has won the Premier League during his stint at Chelsea and the Serie A title at both Juventus and now Inter Milan (via Transfermarkt).
However, Conte clearly has no fear in standing up against the owners of the club he manages and it begs the question would Daniel Levy want to hire a man like that?
In a time when Spurs are looking to rebuild and patch up the relationship between the club and the fans, we think Levy will be looking to do all he can to bring Mauricio Pochettino back to north London who proved to be a fan favourite during his time at the club.
