“Drop me out”- Pundit slams fan for suggesting Spurs should replace Antonio Conte with ex-Burnley boss

O’Hara slams fan for suggesting Tottenham Hotspur should hire Sean Dyche to replace Antonio Conte

Speaking exclusively in a TalkSPORT segment, former Tottenham Hotspur player Jamie O’Hara has slammed a fan who suggested that the club should hire former Burnley manager Sean Dyche to replace Antonio Conte.

It is worth mentioning that Spurs are yet to extend Conte’s contract. As of now, he hasn’t shown any eagerness to pen new terms and could leave as a free agent at the end of the season.

Given he hasn’t signed a new deal as of now, fans would start to worry about where his future lies – and if it is at N17. Hence, the board would be wise to start drawing up contingency plans.

But one fan came up with the suggestion that Spurs should hire Dyche – the English manager who was Burnley’s head coach for a decade until he was relieved of his duties last year. O’Hara’s response was almost hilarious. He said:

“Has he just said Sean Dyche? What are you talking about? We can’t attract that type of a manager? We’ve got Antonio Conte and Jose Mourinho to be our last managers… You want to sack Antonio Conte and give the job to Sean Dyche? Drop me out boys.”

O’Hare is right. Dyche is a manager associated with unattractive, defensive football that made the Clarets a nightmare to play against for top teams.

The Lilywhites have had Jose Mourinho and even Conte playing a defensive brand of football a lot of times. But they’ve mastered the art of balancing defence with attack.

Their credentials can’t be questioned. Mourinho and Conte are two of the greatest managers of the modern era. Dyche, meanwhile, has absolutely no experience managing a UEFA Champions League team.

It isn’t guaranteed that only big-name managers can break our trophy drought. But given the situation we are in, we can do our best to make sure we get the right man for the job – one who is experienced and knows how to handle a team of Spurs’ size.
