Why would Conte walk out on Spurs for Juventus return?

Questions of how long any given manager will remain in the warmest of hot seats at Tottenham are nothing new, with a revolving door policy having been adopted at times when it comes to coaching tenures in north London.

It, therefore, came as little surprise when speculation surfaced regarding a supposedly quick turnaround for Antonio Conte in a prominent Premier League post. The Italian was said to have grown disillusioned with events on and off the field a matter of months after his arrival.


Said rumours were taken with a serious pinch of salt and ultimately proved to have little or no substance to them. Conte remains at the helm and is building towards a brighter future. He may not have Spurs figuring prominently in just yet, but give him time.

Success has tended to follow him around and plenty of will continue to side with a proven winner who has previously delivered Serie A title glory at Juventus and Inter and a domestic double while calling the shots at Chelsea.

A loyal fan base at the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium is certainly hoping that proves to be the case, with a much-publicised barren run on the trophy front about to hit the 15-year mark. If anybody can bring that silverware drought to a close, then it is Conte.

That is, of course, if he sticks around long enough in order to see the job through. There has been further talk of late regarding steps potentially being retraced to Turin. Given his strong ties to Juve – in both playing and coaching capacities – such gossip is to be expected.

Even those in Italy are not entirely convinced that a salvage mission in his homeland would appeal to the most ambitious of characters. Gianluca Petrachi, who is being linked with a directorial role at Juventus, has said: “Conte would think 10 times before making such a choice. He is a pragmatic person, and he’d consider the options given by the club, also economically. Antonio is a modern coach, he is not part of the past and he proved that last season.”

With forward thinking taken into account and the Bianconeri seemingly stuck in reverse, why would Conte consider jumping ship at this point?

He boasts enough support in England, both on the terraces and in the boardroom, to suggest that everyone is prepared to make his life as comfortable as possible.


If everybody is singing from the same hymn sheet, then dreams of tangible success being savoured – rather than merely longed for – can start to form. Conte has offered enough to suggest that he can be the man to hit the right notes and secure a standing as a club legend by delivering on lofty expectations.

He is, however, only contracted through to the summer of 2023, so there are obvious issues for Spurs power brokers to address in order for the noises which continue to emanate out of Italy to remain nothing more than hot air.
