Antonio Conte Hired As Manager Of Tottenham 

Post#1 » by RealGM Wiretap » Tue Nov 2, 2021 2:26 pm

Tottenham Hotspur have hired Antonio Conte to replace Nuno Espirito Santo as manager.

Conte signed a deal until 2023 with the option to extend.

Conte won the Premier League with Chelsea in 2017 and also won Series A during his stints at Juventus and Inter Milan. Conte left Inter in May following their title success amid reports the club needed to cut costs because of the coronavirus pandemic.

Conte nearly became manager of Spurs in the summer.

\"I am extremely happy to return to coaching, and to do so at a Premier League club that has the ambition to be a protagonist again,\" Conte said. \"Tottenham Hotspur has state-of-the-art facilities and one of the best stadiums in the world.

\"I can\'t wait to start working to convey to the team and the fans the passion, mentality and determination that have always distinguished me, as a player and as a coach.

\"Last summer our union did not happen because the end of my relationship with Inter was still too recent and emotionally too involved with the end of the season, so I felt that it wasn\'t yet the right time to return to coaching.

\"But the contagious enthusiasm and determination of Daniel Levy in wanting to entrust me with this task had already hit the mark. Now that the opportunity has returned, I have chosen to take it with great conviction.\"
