After 16 months in charge, Antonio Conte has left Tottenham Hotspur by mutual consent. The decision came after a remarkable news conference in which the Italian manager referred to the Spurs players as “selfish” and criticized the culture of the club.
Although Tottenham currently sits in fourth place in the top flight, they have been eliminated from all cup competitions. The departure of Conte comes as a significant blow to the club, as he was widely regarded as a top-tier manager and had been tasked with leading Tottenham back to glory.
Cristian Stellini, Conte’s assistant, will take charge as head coach for the remainder of the season, with former midfielder Ryan Mason serving as his deputy.
With only 10 Premier League games left to play, Tottenham faces a tough fight for a Champions League place. Chairman Daniel Levy has called on everyone involved with the club to rally together and ensure the highest possible finish for the team and its loyal supporters.
As Tottenham moves forward without Conte, questions remain about the club’s future and the culture that led to his departure. Nonetheless, the team will look to put these issues aside and focus on securing a spot in Europe’s premier club competition.
