Former striker explains his fear of why Antonio Conte could leave Tottenham

By Eddie Razo -

The future of Tottenham Hotspur manager Antonio Conte has been a topic of discussion for the last few months. 

Initially, the Italian tactician’s future was hindered by whether Spurs would provide the funds to spend and overhaul the squad into his vision. Then recently, there were reports that Conte is keen on the Paris Saint-Germain job when they eventually sack their manager Mauricio Pochettino. 

Despite Conte denying these reports, former Tottenham striker Teddy Sheringham told The Sun that he fears if the north London club fails to qualify for the UEFA Champions League, the 52-year-old will bolt. 

“He is a man who wants to do business straight away. He wants to be playing at the top level in big games,” Sheringham said. “But he took the job knowing where Tottenham were. He knew it wouldn’t be easy to get into the top four, and he needs to work harder, so they stay consistent and get in.”

“We know how fickle football is. Money talks, and if others want these top managers, then they go out and pressurise other clubs and make it known. That is why it is in Tottenham’s and Conte’s best interests to get into the Champions League.”

Tottenham is currently four points away from Arsenal, who is in fourth place. Both clubs will face off on Thursday and what will be one of the biggest North London Derby’s, considering what is at stake and how vital the three points are for the two clubs.

A win for Arsenal, and they likely punch their ticket to the Champions League next season. However, a win for Spurs would see them one point off their rivals with two games left on their schedule.

He maybe a man of integrity but Levy isnt ..so maybe he stays another season or offs unless he is well backed this summer. That will bring us round to the year when Kane signs another contract or goes to Bayern to replace Lewandowski….Kane ain’t signing another contract..cannot see it…Son will be older ..Who wants to be in charge for that.

Logically there should be no doubt that Antonio Conte stays next season .When appointed he could not have signed on the condition that he MUST WIN a CL spot to remain manager for the following season , that would be legally and technically an insane agreement . What would happen if he got CL , the fans love him but the board dont ? Or he hates them ?
Conte wants a top club – he’s got it . He wants a project , a team to mould in his own likeness – he’s got it . He wants to win the Premier League – so do we . He seems to be the only elite manager , that with correct backing/funding , might bring that about . He appears to be a great judge of player – we rarely hear of team choices that fans dont agree with , that’s unusual but true.
If he stays he will be aiming for the stars undoubtedly .
He appears to be a man of integrity and honour and I think whether it’s a 4th place or 5th —- HE STAYS . That is my belief C O Y S !!!!!!
