Antonio Conte is stepping down from the Tottenham Hotspur helm.
Tottenham Hotspur of the English Premier League (EPL) announced on the 27th (hereinafter Korean time) on the club’s official website that “Coach Conte has left the club by mutual agreement.”
Tottenham said, “We got the right 토토사이트to advance to the UEFA Champions League (UCL) in the first season under Conte’s managerial system.” For the rest of the season, coach Christian Stellini will take over as acting manager and coach Ryan Mason will lead the team.
Conte’s breakup was a predestined step. In an away match against토토사이트 Southampton held at St Mary’s Stadium on the 19th, Conte took a 3-1 lead, then conceded two goals in a row to draw 3-3, and then criticized the team and the club in an official interview.
“We weren’t a team,” Conte said at the time. There are 11 players running on the ground, but I see selfish players.”
He also said, “For 20 years, Tottenham has been run by the same owner,” and “I haven’t harvested anything in the meantime. Even if the manager is changed, the situation is not likely to improve.”
Afterwards, Tottenham started to worry about the future of manager Conte during the A match in March. The local media reported Conte’s resignation as a fait accompli. Coach Conte also went on vacation to Italy and did not return to the team.
In the end, Tottenham chose to part ways with manager Conte, as expected. Although the expression ‘termination of the contract by mutual agreement’ was used, it is practically hard.
Coach Conte, who took the helm of Tottenham during the 2021-22 season, demonstrated his ability to lead a team that had been in the bottom half of the league to 4th place with strong charisma. Encouraged by Conte, Tottenham also fully supported him by recruiting Richarlison and Ivan Perisic ahead of the new season.
However, throughout the season, coach Conte continued to have conflicts with the club without producing any significant results. To make matters worse, last winter, he underwent cholecystitis surgery and was absent from the team for more than a month. He also expressed his loneliness at being away from his family.
In the end, like the team that Conte was in charge of before, it ended with a bad result of parting in the middle of the season. Conte was a talkative and troublesome coach, but his winning rate during his tenure was 58.18%, the second highest among all Tottenham coaches.
Former Tottenham coach Mauricio Pochettino and Julian Nagelsmann, who was recently sacked from Bayern Munich (Germany), are being discussed as candidates for the next manager of Tottenham.
