Report claims Daniel Levy policy could force key man out of the club

By Saikat -

Tottenham Hotspur manager Antonio Conte’s long-term future at the club has been a constant subject of discussion over the last few months.

While there are many who believe that Italian is well settled at the London club and he will continue at Spurs for the foreseeable future, there are rumours that he is angling for a move away from the Premier League club.

A report from La Repubblica is now claiming that Conte is not convinced of Tottenham’s ambitions in the transfer market and he could leave the club in the near future.

Club Chairman Daniel Levy is known to be frugal with his spending and the lack of ambition in the transfer market could make it difficult for Conte to win major trophies with the London club.

While the Italian was heavily backed during the recently concluded summer transfer window, Tottenham’s squad still nowhere near the likes of Manchester City.

Conte is an ambitious manager and he will want to win the Premier League with Tottenham. It is evident that Daniel Levy will have to bring in top-quality players in the upcoming windows in order for that to happen.

The report claims (h/t Sportwitness) that Conte is eyeing up moves for ‘super players’ and it will be interesting to see if the Spurs hierarchy is willing to back him with the funds.

He has previously left clubs like Juventus and Inter Milan because of the lack of ambition in the transfer market and it wouldn’t be surprising if he decided to do the same at Tottenham.

Conte is undoubtedly one of the best managers Tottenham have had in a long time and holding on to him should be their top priority. They must do everything in their power to convince the Italian to stay at the club and give him the backing he demands.

Conte was not ‘heavily’ backed at all. With everybody fit an in form, only Perisic gets in the team. I guess it depends on what you regard as ‘backing’ innit…

“I’m enjoying working for Tottenham, I have a great relationship with the owner and Paratici. I don’t see a problem for the future.”

From Conte himself yesterday

Famous last words, but when he leaves it proves that Levys lack of ambition is the sole reason why we won’t, can’t and havent won anything. Until Levy and ENIC leave we’ll win nothing.

Levy could be like Santa Claus and he’d leave after a few years – such is the nature of the man. He is clearly very happy, just enjoy it. No point spending your life catastrophising.

There are only a handful of jobs in World football he’d have vastly more resources than he does now, and if one of those clubs came in for him he’d be gone regardless.

Yes but the truth of the matter is that Levy will never be like Santa Claus, and he hasn’t been with Conte. So I guess we’ll never know will we… Conte is not gonna stick around when he can go to another club that will back him properly. He has that luxury, which is why he was never going to stay in Levyland very long…

As I said, there are only a handful of clubs that will ‘back him properly’ in comparison to us.

Since the stadium olened we are 3rd in Europe (do 19/20 to 22/23 and sort by balance)

There are few places he can go from here and have more resources really. He won’t be going to a PL club. Then it is really only Munich, Madrid, PSG, Barca possibly. Eveyone else is skint

Arsenal, Wolves, Nottingham Forest, loads of clubs routinely back their coaches.

Wolves are a staging post for Mendes, the coach gets who he chooses.

Forest have had to spend this Summer like Villa when they came up. Poor squads, depleted by returned loanees. It is a one-off.

Arsenal have spent pretty much the same as us since Summer 2019. They are 2nd in Europe. We are just behind in 3rd.

Tottenham pre 2019, yes. Tottenham post 2019 are operating differently. Not opinion, this is simple numbers.

00:23 – Gabriel Jesus taking Arsenal to the next level: He was an important player for Manchester City. When you want to be competitive, you need to have a strong squad. He went to Arsenal to play regularly.
08:38 – One-year contract extension available: If the club and manager want to work together they will and if they don’t they will finish.

It’s a stick on cert that he will leave, although Levy made it look like he’s backed Conte in the summer window, we actually spent a lot less than was supposed to be available. Conte will want another one or two in January and if they don’t come, I don’t think Conte will stick around. When that does happen, Levy’s position will come under severe pressure. Hopefully Levy will go and ENIC will sell up and do us all a favour.

It’s unlikely, They will do what they normally do, make a raft of excuses and reasons and go back to ‘building for the future’. Just like they have done for the last 23 years. The future has come and gone many times under ENIC, with fack all to show for it but one poxy League Cup and £1bn of debt…

Out of interest, where do you think he’d go to?
