Next Tottenham boss: ‘Keep an eye’ on two exciting Premier League coaches as Antonio Conte era enters ‘end game’
Tottenham fans should ‘keep an eye’ on Robert de Zerbi and another impressive Premier League manager as club chairman Daniel Levy looks for Antonio Conte replacements, TEAMtalk has been told.
Conte has been heavily tipped to leave the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium when his contract expires in the summer. There are several reasons why the Italian is considering an exit.
Conte’s spell at Tottenham has not gone to plan. He has failed to help them end their long trophy drought or get them involved in the Premier League title race.
Conte has also had a torrid year, first with Spurs fitness coach and close friend Gian Piero Ventrone passing away and then having to have gallbladder surgery.
Several names have been linked with the job, including Mauricio Pochettino, Thomas Tuchel, De Zerbi, Marco Silva and Luis Enrique.
Amid all the rumours, TEAMtalk understands that Conte has already decided he won’t be prolonging his stay beyond this summer.
