Conte hints at leaving Tottenham

Antonio Conte examined his own performance at a sensational press conference on Wednesday evening after Tottenham Hotspur’s 1-0 defeat at Burnley. The Italian manager isn’t sure if he’s the right man for the ailing Premier League club right now.

“In the last five games we play as a club in relegation trouble,” 52-year-old Conte told English media at Turf Moor in no uncertain terms. “That is the reality. It has never happened to me that I lose four of my last five league games. For Tottenham this must also be a disaster.”

“I came here to help the club, but we could very well finish 10th, 12th or 13th this season and then I have not helped the club. Maybe I am not the man now who can change the situation. I’m too honest to close my eyes and continue on the same footing.”


Tottenham recorded a great victory over league leaders Manchester City last Saturday, but that was a rare success. Conte’s team have lost to Chelsea, Southampton and Wolverhampton Wanderers in the three previous Premier League matches and were therefore no match for Burnley.

‘I spend 20 hours a day at Tottenham’

It is a hard blow for Conte, who won the national championship with Internazionale last season. The Italian had to leave the Serie A club and moved to Tottenham in November to replace the sacked Nuno. The Portuguese had to leave after a few months because of the disappointing results.

Tottenham continues to perform erratically under Conte and that eats into the former Juventus player. “I work very hard. 20 hours of my day I spend at Tottenham and the remaining four hours I sleep, but it is not enough. I also have my ambitions and hate losing,” said the teased manager.

“This is my responsibility. I will definitely talk to the club to find a solution so that the team is no longer in this situation. It is the right time for an evaluation and I am open to any decision of the club. I I’m very frustrated. For all the work we do, we just don’t deserve this.”

Tottenham are currently eighth in the Premier League. The difference with number five West Ham United, which has virtually a Europa League ticket, is nevertheless only three points and the ‘Spurs’ still have two games left.
