Tottenham Hotspur manager Antonio Conte rubbishes “disrespectful” Juventus links

Recently, Tottenham Hotspur manager Antonio Conte has been linked with the managerial hot-seat at Juventus after Massimiliano Allegri’s poor start to the season.

He was asked to address these rumours in his latest press conference (h/t Football.London) before the Premier League tie against Arsenal at the Emirates on October 1. He said:

“(Laughs) This is incredible. In this period I think this is disrespectful for the coach that works in Juventus and for me working in Tottenham. We have just started the season. Many time I have spoken about this topic and I’ve always said I’m happy and enjoying my time with Tottenham.”

Conte went on to add that he has a great relationship with the director of football Fabio Paratici and that he respects his contract. The Italian manager’s deal runs out in the summer of 2023.

“I have a great relationship with the owner and Paratici. I don’t see any problems at the moment in the future. We both signed the contract. I don’t want to listen to someone speaking about this [linked elsewhere].”

After the start Allegri has had with Juventus this season, you can expect fans to be angry at the man in charge. Juve have mustered just 10 points from seven league games so far and won just twice.

They have also lost both their UEFA Champions League group stage games so far this season and are in danger of missing out from the knockout rounds.

However, that doesn’t mean that Juve would want to axe such an experienced manager and that Spurs would let Conte break his contract and return to Turin. Conte managed Juve from 2011 to 2014 and hence, it is easy to see why his name is being linked with them.

But now that he has directly and condescendingly shut down these links, perhaps the discussion around his immediate future at N17 can come to a halt.
