Tottenham Reportedly Pull Out Of Conte Talks.
TOTTENHAM On The Verge Of Signing Antonio Conte As Their New Manager
Tottenham look set to announce former Chelsea, Juventus, and Inter Milan boss Antonio Conte as their new manager, after 48 hours of talks, according to talkSPORT, with Fabio Paratici, his ex-Juventus colleague also tipped to make the move to London and join the club as sporting director.
Chairman Daniel Levy was known to chasing his former manager Mauricio Pochettino, but it looks as though he has now been tempted to stay in France with PSG, as Levy looks to replace Jose Mourinho with a big name.
Appointing Conte to the vacant manager’s job would really be a huge statement by Tottenham, with the Italian recognised as one of the top coaches in Europe, having just left Inter Milan after guiding them to their first Serie A title since 2010, while previously winning the premiership title and FA Cup during his two seasons in charge of Chelsea.
Conte’s time at Juventus – where he was also a player – was laden with silverware, including three consecutive Serie A titles, and Levy will be hoping that the Italian can work his magic and deliver some trophies to Tottenham after a very barren spell.
Siman Jordan, the talkSPORT host, and former Crystal Palace owner said about Tottenham being on the verge of signing Conte, “If you go and get Conte in at Tottenham Hotspur you’re saying something quite significant. The fact he’ll come to Tottenham is actually more significant because Conte is not coming for nothing”.
He continued, “He’s not coming because he wants to be part of ‘the project’, he’s not coming because he wants to get a big bag of money, because he could get that at most places. He’s coming because he’s ready to go, and that means Tottenham are in business mode and that means, I suspect, Tottenham are going to have a go”.
