Thottenham to decide the future of Antonio
Watch Antonio Conte call time on Spurs as he was not expecting a weak performance from Thottenham on the match with southampton , he criticised players for being lethargic and for playing safe in their team. As of that, he is about to leave the spurs as the dispute is arised and also considering the end of the contract
It appears to be increasingly expected among his players, Antonio Conte’s time at Tottenham comes to an end sooner rather than later, the Italian’s era at the club will be viewed in different ways by those around him.
Antonio conte call time on Spurs
A handful of Spurs first team players returned to Hotspur Way on Tuesday just four fit outfield ones while Conte normally returns later in the first week of an international break after a spell back in Italy with his family. Tottenham remain silent over reports that he may not return at all and if he does whether it is to discuss his fate directly with chairman Daniel Levy. The mood at the sprawling training complex at Enfield is certainly one of a club that feels yet another change is coming.
It says everything about the environment that Conte was thrust into, and seemingly will be thrust out of, that his departure will mean Spurs have not had a manager last a full season at the club since the 2018/19 campaign. The stability of the Mauricio Pochettino era has given way to three permanent managers and one caretaker one within four years as Levy has lurched from decision to decision, trying and failing to push pieces into a jigsaw that simply won’t go.
Spurs journey with Antonio Conte
There was a genuine excitement within the club when they managed to land Conte at the second attempt back in November 2021.
The first time Spurs had spoken to the Italian, in the summer that year, they were unable to find a common ground. Conte did not believe the club had the same ambition as he did to win the top prizes and Tottenham felt that his demands could end up being unrealistic and unmanageable
The two parties went their separate ways at that point and after a few twists and turns, Spurs’ managing director of football Fabio Paratici convinced Levy to turn to Nuno Espirito Santo, showing the initially reluctant chairman videos of the former Wolves manager’s Valencia team from years before, with their attacking football.
The Portuguese was appointed but within months was gone, the football dreadful and the fans calling for his head after he quickly showed that his promise to ‘make you proud’ was a hollow one.
The Italian’s contract is up at the end of this season but there is a sense he could depart the club much sooner.
Conte is at home in Italy for a few days during the international break. He has always prided himself on quickly building a winning mentality wherever he has worked and he is very disappointed that he has not been able to do this at Spurs.
On the other hand, Tottenham went backwards. There has been no improvement in mentality, attitude and hunger. New players have brought problems or complaints and the players’ attitude has always been an issue at Spurs.
Tottenham do not play again for a fortnight and that has given chairman Daniel Levy a short period of time to decide whether he should take any action against Conte.
Players and staff are currently on a pre-scheduled two days off and will report back to the training ground on Tuesday, which would have been the case regardless of the result.
Emile Hojbjerg response on Antonio comments
Pierre-Emile Hojbjerg has responded to Conte’s incendiary comments, describing himself as an “honest player” and calling on the manager to be “more precise” with his criticism.
The Tottenham midfielder said: “I think we’ve all seen it . He gave a very honest and very open press conference.
“It is because he is not satisfied. You don’t do that if you’ve reached the quarter-final of the Champions League and if you’re in the semi-final of the FA Cup. It comes from the fact that, unfortunately, we did not get the results we as a team and club wanted.
“We are still where we want and need to be in the Premier League but yes, it’s hard.
“I understand that if you want to be successful as a team, you need 11 men who are committed to a project and a culture but I think he has to elaborate on how he feels before you as a player can start measuring and weighing.
