Tipped to join Tottenham, Antonio Conte should ultimately not sit on the bench of Spurs. The Italian coach would have big doubts about the Spurs project. The two parties are also said to have financial disagreements.
Antonio Conte and Tottenham, it seems already over. The former Inter Milan coach, who just won Serie A just before leaving the club, is unlikely to join Spurs as he seemed the favorite to take the job. According to various sources, both the coach and the club have several points of disagreement.
In England, the Telegraph announced that the deal could not be done because of the too high demands of Conte, who fears him that Tottenham will not be able to immediately win trophies. Disagreements regarding the management of young people would also be taken into account for the English daily, which formally announces that the operation will not take place.
Too many disagreements
Sky Sports confirm this information by adding that the coach is said to be ready to take a year off before continuing his career. The Telegraph, however, announces that Fabio Paratici, who worked for Juventus Turin, will become the club’s new sporting director.
In Italy, the journalist Fabrizio Romano also evokes the arrival of Paratici by announcing for his part that if Conte will not join Tottenham, it will also be for financial reasons, with salary demands deemed too high by Spurs leaders. The former Chelsea coach would also have wanted to bring four members of his staff, which would have slowed down discussions. What revive the rumors leading to Mauricio Pochettino?
