Antonio Conte Finally Leaves Tottenham By 'Mutual Consent'

Tottenham Hotspur have sacked Antonio Conte as manager following the Italian's incredible tirade launched at his own players after the 3-3 draw at Southampton.

Spurs had been leading 3-1 at the Premier League's bottom club with just 13 minutes to play on Saturday, only to then concede twice - including a penalty in stoppage time - to drop two points and put a severe dent in the club's bid to qualify for the Champions League.

The result was damning for Spurs and Conte but his post-match rant has forced club chiefs to act.

Conte had taken over as Spurs in November 2021 following an ill-fated start to the season under his predecessor Nuno Espirito Santo and what's followed has been a rollercoaster 16-months in charge at the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium.

He leaves the club with a record of 41 wins from his 76 matches in charge. 

Mauricio Pochettino, Steve Cooper, Roberto De Zerbi, Olivier Glasner and Luis Enrique are among the coaches who could succeed Conte, but axed Bayern Munich boss Julian Nagelsmann is the bookies favourite.

The Italian, who held talks with Spurs chiefs this week, had just three months left on his current deal, which is worth £15million a year – meaning Conte is due in the region of £4million in compensation, excluding the money owed to his staff.
