“I was in London”- Juve legend claims Conte is ‘super happy’ at Tottenham

Tottenham Hotspur offered reassurance by Alessandro Del Piero after meeting with manager Antonio Conte

According to the Express, former Italian striker Alessandro Del Piero has reassured Tottenham Hotspur fans by saying that head coach Antonio Conte is happy at the club, despite recent results not going his way.

Conte looked shaken and upset after his side’s 1-0 loss to relegation-threatened Burnley at Turf Moor, which left Tottenham in eighth place in the Premier League and threatened their hopes of a top-four finish.

Del Piero, who won the World Cup with Italy in 2006, said that his compatriot and friend Conte only had problems regarding the club’s transfer business last month as the club did not bring in enough stars that the manager wished for.

“I feel the problem is about players he needs to win titles. They sold four players in Jan and only signed two.”

January saw Spurs loan out Giovani Lo Celso, Tanguy Ndombele, Byran Gil and sell Dele Alli to Everton while only bringing in Dejan Kulusevski and Rodrigo Bentancur on deadline day after raiding Juventus.

“Super happy”

The Lilywhites’ defeat at Burnley means that they have now lost four league games in their previous five matches, interspersed only by a win over Manchester City at the Etihad Stadium last weekend.

Del Piero said that despite the recent losses, Conte was super happy about life in N17, praising the team, board, facilities, and the stadium when he met his old friend a few weeks back. The 47-year-old, of course, played one season under Conte at Juve before eventually leaving Turin for Sydney.

The Burnley loss really seemed to frustrate Conte with life as Spurs manager, sparking exit rumours from the club. However, Del Piero’s words will comfort a few fans at the very least, as the Italian legend spoke about Conte’s happiness at his new club.

The former Chelsea manager has only been at Tottenham since November last year, so an exit at this stage in the season would surprise everyone. It remains to be seen whether the boss will stay beyond the summer, but Del Piero has hinted that Conte is happy where he is.

Conte’s frustration at the club’s January transfer business can be understood, especially after the club brought in fewer players than they sent out. The Italian may see this as a sign that Spurs are not backing him enough, which could have led to his recent outburst after the Burnley game.

Hopefully, we see the club and manager make amends soon and reach an internal agreement on what the future holds for both parties. For now, though, Conte and Tottenham’s focus will be on Leeds United in the Premier League to shake off this rotten league form and kick on.
