Fabrizio Romano has dropped an interesting claim on Tottenham Hotspur manager Antonio Conte while speaking on The Action Network YouTube channel.
Tottenham Hotspur have a huge chance to end this season on a high after their impressive North London derby victory last night which has now put them just one point behind their rivals with just two games left to play.
Will Spurs finish in the top four?
The top four will likely be crucial for Antonio Conte as he and Daniel Levy will know that if they finish in the Champions League spots then the calibre of players they’ll be able to attract will take a huge step u compared to them being in the Europa League.
Romano believes that Conte is now obsessed with finishing in the top four, despite being linked with the PSG job a few weeks ago.
(19:13) “The first point, I’m told from Antonio’s side, that the rumours we had about Paris Saint-Germain were not coming from his camp, so the rumours we saw about PSG were not from Antonio, because now he’s really obsessed with this Champions League race is something that is more than important for Antonio, it feels just like a title.”
TIF Thoughts on Conte…
The reports about Conte leaving emerged off the back of Mauricio Pochettino reportedly set to receive the boot in Paris despite winning the Ligue 1 title but with Spurs now so close to clinching the top four, it appears that Conte is settled.
Conte himself has even admitted in his most recent pre-match press conference that he is 100% committed to Spurs right now, which may be in turn down to the fact they’ve just beat Arsenal 3-0 and look favourites to clinch a spot in the Champions League for the first time since the 2018/19 season.
