“Can’t wait to return”- Journo reveals why Antonio Conte is yet to renew Tottenham contract

Tottenham Hotspur manager Antonio Conte ‘can’t wait to return’ to Juventus

Current Tottenham Hotspur manager Antonio Conte’s contract at Juventus was terminated by mutual consent in the summer of 2014, after which he became the manager of Italy.

Eight years on, journalist Paolo Bargiggia has claimed (h/t the Express) that the Italian boss is eager to return to Turin. This, he believes, is the reason why Conte is yet to extend his deal with Spurs.

“If the management @juventusfc manages to resist the temptation to kick Allegri out by keeping him until the end of the season, then he can go straight to Conte who can’t wait to return and for this reason he is not renewing with the British.”

Conte, who has managed Chelsea and Inter Milan in the past, signed an 18-month contract with the Lilywhites in November 2021 (Mirror). Hence, his deal is about to expire at the end of the current season – a station that would be making many Spurs fans nervous.

He has done a brilliant job at Spurs so far, guiding us to the UEFA Champions League this season after a fourth-place finish in the 2021/22 campaign. With Arsenal and Manchester United breathing down our necks, finishing in fourth felt like a trophy.

It is about taking things one step at a time. Now that Spurs are playing in UEFA’s premier club competition and retained their stars this summer, this could be the campaign where we seriously challenge for silverware.

At least that’s what our fans would hope for if Conte does not renew his deal next year. The team finally seems stable and capable of competing for trophies, especially after the additions of players like Richarlison, Ivan Perisic, and Yves Bissouma.

Tottenham fans would, hence, hope that Massimiliano Allegri stays as Juventus manager for as long as possible. The Old Lady, however, have started the season in poor fashion and have just 10 points from six league games – winning two and drawing four.
