Antonio Conte Appointed As New Tottenham Manager

Antonio Conte, the former Chelsea and Inter Milan boss has been appointed as Tottenham’s new manager until summer 2023 after sacking Nuno Espirito Santo on Monday.

Tottenham said goodbye to Nuno after just 17 games, with the club now in the eighth position of the table. The sacking happened on Monday, which confirmed the reports that the manager was on his way out.

Tottenham says there is “an option to extend” 52-year-old Conte’s deal with them based on reports by BBC.

“I am extremely happy to return to coaching, and to do so at a Premier League club that has the ambition to be a protagonist again,” said Conte.

Antonio Conte returns to the Premier League after winning his first season at Chelsea (2016-17) and the FA Cup in his second before being sacked in 2018. He then led Inter Milan to their first Serie A title in 11 years before leaving the club in May.

The former Juventus coach was in talks with Tottenham in the summer about becoming Jose Mourinho’s successor but negotiations were stopped before Spurs decided to appoint  Nuno at the end of June.

“I can’t wait to start working to convey to the team and the fans the passion, mentality and determination that have always distinguished me, as a player and as a coach,” said Conte.

“Last summer our union did not happen because the end of my relationship with Inter was still too recent and emotionally too involved with the end of the season, so I felt that it wasn’t yet the right time to return to coaching.

“But the contagious enthusiasm and determination of [Tottenham chairman] Daniel Levy in wanting to entrust me with this task had already hit the mark. Now that the opportunity has returned, I have chosen to take it with great conviction.”

Conte’s first game will be at home against Dutch side Vitesse Arnhem in the Europa Conference League on Thursday before Spurs play at Everton in the league on Sunday.

“His track record speaks for itself, with vast experience and trophies in both Italy and England,” said Tottenham managing director of football Fabio Paratici.

“I know first hand the qualities Antonio can bring to us, having worked with him at Juventus, and look forward to seeing his work with our talented group of players.”
