A former West Ham player gives verdict on Antonio Conte’s future amid links to PSG
By Eddie Razo -

In the last few days, Tottenham Hotspur manager Antonio Conte has been connected to the potential job opening at Paris Saint-Germain, who will reportedly sack their current boss Mauricio Pochettino. 

Nonetheless, Conte recently denied the rumors, calling them fake, but former West Ham United striker Frank McAvennie spoke with Football Insider about the gaffer’s future in north London. 

McAvennie stated that the Italian tactician wouldn’t only want to finish in the top four and see it as a successful season. Conte wants to compete for trophies, and the ex-striker believes he won’t accomplish that with Spurs. 

“I can’t see him staying,” McAvennie said. “They need to get into the top-four, but even if they do that, there will be other interested clubs. Conte doesn’t want to just finish fourth; he wants to manage a team that will win trophies.”

“How long is it going to be until this side is ready to win trophies? It won’t be next season. Conte will also want to spend a lot of money, and I don’t think he will get it. He’s so good he can do whatever he wants, so it’s up to him; I think he will go. I think there is no hope of keeping him.”

Before the rumors linking him to PSG, Conte discussed the financial backing he hopes to have this summer to build a squad with Tottenham that can challenge for trophies. With Manchester City, Liverpool, and to an extent Chelsea, spending a good amount of money on their teams.

Conte wants Spurs to compete with these clubs, and it will take a level of financial commitment to rival them in the Premier League and Champions League.

So much fake news the mainstream media embarrass themselves now… I think it’s hilarious everyone hated Maureen for being too defensive and not playing the ‘Spurs way’… His main formation was 4231.. His second most used formation was 433.. He nearly always played with FOUR at the back….. Now Conte plays with FIVE at the back. (As I said he would Mr Eastside) and no one is complaining as H points out in a recent daily brief.. It’s impossible not to love Conte.. The Bald one has to back him in the summer. Money should be flowing now the Superbowls open.. Isn’t it Tomorrow yet? Time to fill up the Superbowl with the JAM.

While much of what he’s saying makes sense, this guy is just anti-Spurs to the core.

I suppose it depends on what offers come for him between now and the summer, but I’m sure Conte has built a decent relationship with certain players at the club which may help him think he’d like to work another season with them, we’ll see.

Wait until we lose the next game Conte will be taking over Lady of Perpetual Angels in the summer.

My over-riding feeling is- why would Conte leave now ?
I am sure he reached a sort of verbal agreement with Levy , I think Spurs have done better than average since his arrival , 4th is not definite of course , but we do appear to have firmer foundation on which to build .Our squad will improve , probably our purchases will go through an improved “due diligence” process and the very least to expect next year would be to cement our place at the Top Table of the sport , of which we are clinging to by the fingernails . We need Conte , Spurs is a top job , why did he come if he is only to stay for a few short months with his impressive CV on the line ?
No , I believe treated correctly he’s here for the long haul , how could Levy have seduced him without the promise of funding if necessary ?
Its only 5/6 months with him in charge and the mood of most Spurs fans is that we are improving , baby steps right now , but that 4th spot could be that boost we need , NO , IT WILL be ……………. C O Y S !!!!

Levy also promised Harry Kane things with a “verbal agreement”, and then shat on him. Levy doesn’t honour ‘promises’. He uses them to suck people in, and then sh1ts on them like a seagull nicking chips at Brighton Pier.

Don’t be fooled into thinking his MO is going to change with Conté any more than with Mourinho or Poch. Daniel operates to make money for himself by selling property. He doesn’t care who manages the football team as long as the revenue flows.
Poch, Mourinho, and all that came before them. Same old story. Smoke and mirrors my friend.

I’m sure Kane in his mid twenties knew what he was signing. A 5 or 6 year contract… Verbal agreements are only worth the paper they’re written on.. (If there even was a verbal agreement).

PSG won’t happen, but if Conte isn’t properly backed then he’ll be off to somewhere he is, that is undeniable. Over to you baldy, surprise us – do something positive for this club you rule over like a parasitic despot.
