Estimated read time 2 min read

Antonio Conte has been sacked by Tottenham Hotspur with the club announcing that the Italian has left by mutual agreement.

Perhaps, it was coming all along after the Italian outburst in the aftermath of the 3-3 draw with Southampton. “I think it’s better to go into the problem, we are not a team. We are 11 players that go into the pitch. I see selfish players, players that don’t want to help each other and don’t put their heart [into it]. This season compared to last, now we are worse in this aspect. When you are not a team you cannot improve,” he said in the post-match presser.

Then he added, “It is easy in this way. Tottenham’s story is this, 20 years there is the owner and they never won something but why? The fault is only for the club, or for every manager that stay here.”

That outburst certainly had left the club with a big decision to make and many predicted the manager wanted out. Well, that has now been confirmed with the club announcing his exit.

“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,” the club statement read in parts.

According to the statement, “Cristian Stellini will take the team as Acting Head Coach for the remainder of the season, along with Ryan Mason as Assistant Head Coach”.

Meanwhile, club Chairman, Daniel Levy has called for unity and support as they fight for Champions League qualification.

“We have 10 Premier League games remaining and we have a fight on our hands for a Champions League place. We all need to pull together. Everyone has to step up to ensure the highest possible finish for our Club and amazing, loyal supporters,” he said as quoted by the club’s official website.

The Italian joined Tottenham in 2021 following the sacking of Nuno Espirito Santo and supervised their qualification for the Champions League as they secured the top four. They started this season on good form but things turned south and they have been performing abysmally for some time sparking the manager’s outburst

He supervised 76 matches as manager, winning 41 and losing 23.
