David Ornstein gives update on Antonio Conte’s contract situation at Tottenham Hotspur

Tottenham Hotspur boss Antonio Conte is one of the best managers in European football. Evidence? His track record of winning domestic titles with Juventus, Chelsea, and Inter Milan.

He started Juve’s long-standing domestic domination in Italy during his tenure from 2011 to 2014. He then won the Premier League in his first season as Chelsea’s boss.

Then, he broke an 11-year-old drought for Inter and led them to their first Scudetto since 2010. Hence, there is no surprise that his contract situation would make Spurs fans anxious.

When he replaced Nuno Espirito Santo at the helm last year, he penned a deal that expires in the summer of 2023. As it stands, he is yet to renew those terms.

Now, journalist David Ornstein has given an update on the situation. Speaking on Rio Ferdinand’s The Five YouTube channel, the Athletic journalist said:

“Antonio Conte is out of contract at Tottenham in 2023 but they do have an option to extend him by a year. So, I think there’ll be fairly relaxed in that sense. You’ll have seen reports recently that they are looking to open contract talks with him next month.”

“So ideally, you’d say during the World Cup, I’m sure there will be conversations because that provides an opportunity for so many clubs and managers to sit down and talk.”

The option to extend his deal by another year would surely relax Spurs fans and of course, the club’s board. He has done a decent job at the club, even though we were hammered by Manchester United at Old Trafford earlier this week.

The Italian manager has stated recently that the club cannot compete for the Premier League title with the likes of Manchester City. He seems to be reminding those concerned with Tottenham of the massive task at his hand.

It will be important to keep Conte happy. He is a proven winner and has the mentality needed to get results at the end of the day and win trophies. The board must back him as much as they can – be it in the transfer market or with his on-field decisions.

The rest, hopefully, he’ll take care of.
