Antonio Conte will leave Tottenham Hotspur and make way for Ryan Mason to act as interim manager until the end of the season.
That’s according to a recent report from The Times, who claims Daniel Levy has decided to part ways with Conte following the Italian’s vicious outburst in the wake of Spurs’ 3-3 draw against bottom-of-the-table Southampton last weekend.
Criticising the club’s culture, as well as the playing squad, Conte’s post-match interview virtually sealed his fate with his departure now expected by the weekend.
🗣️ “They’re used to it here. Don’t play for something important. They don’t want to play under pressure or under stress. Tottenham’s story is this. 20 years there is the owner & they never won something. Why?”

Set to succeed the former Chelsea and Inter Milan boss is former player Mason, who enjoyed several seasons with Spurs during his playing days before his career was cut short following an injury to his skull.
Spurs’ hierarchy are understood to be in talks to agree on a compensation package with Conte before opting to allow Mason to take charge until the end of the season when a new permanent manager will be appointed.
Leading candidates to take the job on a permanent basis include former manager Mauricio Pochettino, Brighton and Hove Albion’s Roberto De Zerbi, Brentford’s Thomas Frank and Eintracht Frankfurt’s Oliver Glasner.
It’s time for Conte to wig-off.
“They” this, & “they” that..he sounds like a Goonie (or Chelsea) fan not a Tottenham manager. He came for the money, & as soon as better opportunities presented themselves, he began engineering his own exit.
Enough of these merecernaries- we need players & a coach who love the club. Goodbye Conte. If Kane & Son don’t want to play for us, so be it…
Give Richarlison no. 9 & let us start a new era.
This is why you’re spurs. Still won’t. Blame the same players you’ve had for over 6 years that never soon anything bottle everything. And you’re expecting them to win now when it’s. Clear they don’t know how yet your still choosing to blame coaches that won. If I’m not wrong didn’t conte win the league with inter before he joined spurs. It’s not the coach and he’s right. Bang average club.
It’s tottenham they don’t win anything and. You still back your loser players. Keep saying it’s the coaches when they’ve all shown they could win. Horrible club. I’d be ashamed to admit I support. Spurs. 6 years of your best football and. Nothing. To show for it oh wait but. Harry Kane scored all those goals. Yeah and. Not one of them meant a dam thing. Stop blaming proven winner managers and blame those thrash bin players.
