Tottenham are in contact with conte to coach the team
English football club, Tottenham Hotspur, has contacted Italian coach Antonio Conte, in order to take over the team next season, according to a news report today, Wednesday. Conte, 51, became unemployed after leaving Inter Milan last month, after he led him to regain the Italian league title, which he had been absent since 2010, and could now be ready to return to the British capital, London.
And the British news agency (PA Media) reported that Conte is likely to join Fabio Barracci, who took over as Tottenham’s director of football, after the two previously worked together at Juventus. Tottenham have been looking for a new coach since the dismissal of Jose Mourinho at the end of last April, and are still interested in their former coach, Argentine Mauricio Pochettino. Pochettino, who left Tottenham in November 2019, seems keen to return to the London club, but his current team, Paris Saint-Germain, is unwilling to leave and negotiations between the two sides have reached a dead end.
Conte, who was also associated with the training of Real Madrid before the royal club decided to return its former Italian coach Carlo Ancelotti recently, has a good record with English football, after he won the Premier League and the FA Cup when he was coach of Chelsea. But Conte’s appointment appears to run counter to Tottenham chairman Daniel Levy’s desire to return to the club’s basic approach following Mourinho’s sacking.
Levy said he wanted to bring back “entertaining, offensive football” and that was not a tactic Conte would not follow. As well as the huge expenses incurred by the clubs that the Italian coach trained, is another matter that is not in line with Tottenham’s methods. Nevertheless, Levy does not miss the admiration of Conte’s coaching career, which includes four titles in the Italian League, one in the English Premier League and the same as the FA Cup.
