As reported by the British club, the interruption of the contract with the Italian strategist was “by mutual agreement”. and his assistant Cristian Stellini he has been assigned as interim manager for the remainder of the season. The ad came just over a week after Conte will accuse the team’s players of being “selfish” and also pointed to the owner of the institution in a conference. “We have 10 games left to play in the Premier League and we have to fight for a place in the Champions League”, highlighted the president of the entity Daniel Levy. And he added: “We need to be united. Everyone has to step up to ensure the best possible result for our club and our incredible and loyal fans.”
Conte was in charge of Tottenham during 16 months, but could not cut the title drought that has been established in the club since 2008. His tenure at Spurs ended in undignified fashion, with a shock after the 3-3 draw in Southamptonmaking his departure almost inevitable.
