Daniel Levy wanted Antonio Conte to see out the season at Tottenham Hotspur
Last month, we drew 3-3 with Southampton in the Premier League. After the game, in an extraordinary rant, the Italian expressed his frustration with the team for letting a two-goal lead slip late on.
Subsequently, the 53-year-old parted ways with the Lilywhites by mutual consent. However, while Levy was prepared for the former Inter Milan and Chelsea head coach to leave next summer, he did not plan for a departure in March.
Tottenham’s chairman was fearful of a disaster unfolding at Tottenham with Conte’s departure. Those apprehensions came true after Cristian Stellini’s appointment on an interim basis.
The 49-year-old was unable to change the tide at Spurs. After the abysmal 6-1 defeat to Newcastle United at St James’ Park, he was also relieved of his duties.
Ryan Mason has now been given the reins at the North London side until the end of the campaign. We will face Manchester United next in the Premier League. While the race for the top four is out of our hands, we still have to put up a fight in the remaining six matches.
Conte managed to end last season on a high note, getting us into the Champions League. However, the Italian was unable to bring the best out of the team in the 2022/23 campaign.
Under the 53-year-old, our defence seemed to deteriorate. We have been unable to keep clean sheets and hold onto leads. Therefore, getting rid of the former Inter manager was the right decision.

Conte was not making any progress at Tottenham. The outburst after the Southampton draw was understandable but uncalled for. He did not look happy at Spurs and the Italian’s departure was inevitable.
