Antonio Conte continues to cast doubt over his future at Tottenham Hotspur future
The Italian took over from Nuno Espirito Santo midway through the 2021-22 season, and played a big role in the club finishing in fourth spot. While the return to the UEFA Champions League is a welcome development, it has far from brought stability at the club.
Tottenham have thrown away any advantage they might have had from a strong start and are today outside the top four spots. Unless Conte and his men can get their act together, the slide could continue in the weeks to come.
Conte has been vocal about the need for reinforcements and does not appear to be a content man at the N-17. A manager renowned for winning trophies, the 53-year-old is well aware of the difficulties he faces at Tottenham.
He went on to add that unless he is fully convinced that Tottenham can reach the expected levels, there is every chance that he might call it a day on the project. Such a move would be detrimental to Spurs’ plans of challenging for the top.
“If I am satisfied to continue to do this work and to one day see the result I will continue to stay, if I’m not convinced 100 per cent then I can leave my work here.”
Given that Arsenal and Newcastle United have accelerated their development, it is time that Tottenham also ramp up their efforts. Chelsea and Liverpool are in a state of rebuild and could reach their former levels soon. More so, Man United are also quietly showing better results.
“For now the most important thing is that the process has started. This is very important.”
Conte is aware that the process has already started. However, unless the club can speed it up, there is every reason we can once again see a promising project go up in smoke.
The Italian is right in his assessment of needing help. However, one can also argue that he has to do better to get the best out of his players. Managers like Jurgen Klopp have consistently seen their team punch above their weight and it is something Conte can aspire to.
