Antonio Conte is out at Tottenham Hotspur. The London based team parted ways with their manager after a series of poor result and his explosive post-match press conference at Southampton on the 16th of March.
Conte called the Spurs players “selfish” and criticised the club’s culture in a remarkable news conference after their recent 3-3 draw at Southampton.
Conte’s assistant, Cristian Stellini will step up as head coach for the rest of the season, with former midfielder Ryan Mason his deputy.
A club statement read: “We can announce that head coach Antonio Conte has left the club by mutual agreement. We achieved Champions League qualification in Antonio’s first season at the club. We thank Antonio for his contribution and wish him well for the future.”
“We have 10 Premier League games remaining and we have a fight on our hands for a Champions League place,” club president, Daniel Levi said after Conte’s departure.
The former Chelsea and Inter Milan coach lasted less than two years at Spurs, having replaced Nuno Espírito Santo after the Portuguese was dismissed in November 2021.
“We all need to pull together. Everyone has to step up to ensure the highest possible finish for our club and amazing, loyal supporters.”
Tottenham are fourth in the Premier League but Newcastle are only two points behind with two games in hand.
