‘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 management Tottenham Hotspurs FC has sacked Antonio Conte few months to the end of his contract following the manager’s extraordinary outburst in the aftermath of the 3-3 draw against Southampton in the Premier League in the weekend before the international break.
Tottenham news LIVE reported that Conte was sacked late on Sunday night.
Announcing the disingement, Spurs management stated: “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.”
Recall that Conte attacked his own players and questioned Tottenham’s mentality in an astonishing 10-minute rant, which was the latest of a series of incidents in which the manager criticised Spurs in public during his spell at the club.
Conte’s assistant Cristian Stellini, who took charge of the team while the manager was recovering from gallbladder surgery in recent weeks, had been asked to take charge until the end of the season, assisted by former Spurs midfielder and current coach Ryan Mason.
Tottenham were condemned to a 15th consecutive season without a trophy after their dismal Champions League exit to AC Milan followed defeat to Sheffield United in the FA Cup, but Conte had been allowed to try and steer Spurs towards the top four.
