Conte and Spurs part ways on ‘mutual agreement’

Tale will leave. Tottenham and Antonio Conte have parted ways with a “mutual agreement”, the London club announced on Sunday as tensions with their coach became untenable. Separation therefore seemed inevitable. The Italian will be replaced by his deputy, Cristian Stellini, appointed until the end of the season.

Arrived in November 2021 at the London club, Conte was in the hot seat after elimination in the knockout stages of the Champions League and after having openly criticized his players following a draw (3-3) against the red lantern Southampton before the international break.

Qualifying for the Champions League as a goal

Tottenham are currently fourth in the Premier League but only two points clear of fifth-placed Newcastle, who have two games less in the race to qualify for the Champions League.

“We have ten Premier League games left and we have a battle for a place in the Champions League,” Spurs chairman Daniel Levy said in a statement. “We have to pull ourselves together. Everyone must step up (their efforts) to ensure the best outcome for our club and our loyal and incredible supporters,” he added.
