Italian tactician Antonio Conte has parted ways with Tottenham Hotspurs after 16 months in charge of the Premier League club
Antonio Conte will not wait till his contract runs out in the summer after mutually terminating the contract with Tottenham Hotspurs. On Sunday, Tottenham chairman Daniel Levy said: “We have 10 Premier League games remaining and we have a fight on our hands for a Champions League place. We all need to pull together. Everyone has to step up to ensure the highest possible finish for our Club and amazing, loyal supporters.”
Conte was in the spotlight after a rather controversial rant after his team’s 3-3 draw against bottom-side Southampton, throwing away a 2-goal lead. Conte said, “I’m not used to seeing this type of situation. I see a lot of selfish players and I don’t see a team.
“We are 11 players that go into the pitch. I see selfish players, I see players that don’t want to help each other and don’t put their heart [in].”
Asked to explain Tottenham’s collapse at Southampton, Conte continued: “Because they are used to it here, they are used to it. They don’t play for something important.”
“Twenty years there is the owner and they never won something – but why? The fault is only for the club, or for every manager that stay here.”
Conte’s assistant, Cristian Stellini, has been appointed acting head coach for the rest of the season.
