Tottenham Hotspur: Alan Hutton says Daniel Levy must be worried by Antonio Conte exit talk

Image for Tottenham Hotspur: Alan Hutton says Daniel Levy must be worried by Antonio Conte exit talk

Former Tottenham Hotspur defender Alan Hutton has claimed that reports linking Antonio Conte with an exit ‘must be a nightmare’ for Daniel Levy.

According to a recent report in the Daily Star (via Sky Sports), the Italian manager is apparently open to making a return to Juventus this season if Massimiliano Allegri is sacked amid the team’s poor form.

In full, he said: “It must be a nightmare for Daniel Levy waking up and reading all these articles in the newspapers, to be quite honest.

“I understand the link between Conte and Juventus but he’s only just started his process at Tottenham. They’re actually going somewhere now, you actually get that feeling where they could go on and win something. They’re a very talented squad, they’re organised, the way they play football is at a high level, and for Tottenham to lose the manager at this moment in time, it would be devastating for them.

“I think Daniel Levy will be working in the background to do everything he can to hold on to him, but it’s going to go down to Conte, I guess. If the draw’s too big for him to go back to a club that he knows very well, then that’s going to be his decision. But it would be devastating to Tottenham.”

TIF Thoughts on Antonio Conte and Spurs…

With Tottenham currently unbeaten in the Premier League and playing Champions League football, Conte and Levy will both be relatively pleased with the state of the club at the moment.

However, having won Serie A with Juventus on three occasions in the past as a manager and five times as a player (while also lifting the Champions League), the Italian clearly has strong connections to the club.

And with his contract running out at the end of the season, there is no guarantee that he plans to hang around in north London for any longer than that – especially if his former club come calling should they sack Allegri.

At the very least, Fabrizio Romano has claimed that Conte isn’t close to an exit at this moment in time. Still, with rumours already starting so early on in the season, Levy may well be a little concerned about it all, so we think Hutton could be onto something.

Will Antonio Conte agree to stay at Spurs beyond 2023?

    Levy needs to back Conte again in January then again in the summer, by then Conte’s squad should be what he wants it to be.
