Manager Antonio Conte has left Tottenham Hotspur by mutual consent after leading the team for 16 months. In a recent press conference, Conte criticized the club’s culture and labelled some of the players as “selfish” after his team drew with Southampton.
Despite being in fourth place in the league standings, Tottenham have been knocked out of all other cup competitions. Assistant coach Cristian Stellini will take over as interim head coach until the end of the season, with former midfielder Ryan Mason as his assistant.
“We have 10 matches remaining in the English Premier League, and we are fighting for a place in the UEFA Champions League,” said chairman Daniel Levy. “We all need to be united. Everyone must step up to ensure we finish as high as possible for the club and our loyal fans.”
Conte’s departure means that Spurs are searching for their fourth permanent coach in four years since Mauricio Pochettino left in 2019. It remains to be seen who will take charge of the team next.
