There’s plenty of speculation regarding the future of Tottenham Hotspur manager Antonio Conte, especially if the north London club doesn’t finish in the top four this season.
Recent reports link the Italian tactician to Paris Saint-Germain; others suggest his future will be discussed when the season is over. Nonetheless, Federico Pastorello, Conte’s agent, spoke with La Repubblica (via Paris Fans) on whether his client will remain in north London past 2021-22.
Pastorello didn’t state that Conte is flat out staying; however, did say that he thinks there’s a high chance that his client remains, but leaving a window open should the 52-year-old decide that Tottenham isn’t willing to invest financially.
“Antonio Conte is obsessed with winning; that’s why he is one of the most earning coaches. He is able to change a team. Of course, that’s not enough to win the Premier League title,” Pastorello said.
“Sometimes, he is seen as a difficult coach. But if I was a sports director, I would want a coach who wins, not a coach who lets me live in peace. He is happy with the team; I think he has a 60-70% chance of staying at Tottenham.”
Tottenham has two fixtures left in their Premier League season and sits one point behind Arsenal for a top-four finish. For Conte, it’s simple, they win both their matches and have their north London rival drop points against either Newcastle United or Everton, and they play UEFA Champions League football next season.
Should they play in Europe’s top competition next season then it’s highly like he remains as manager.
