Official: Antonio Conte out at Spurs, leaves club by mutual consent

SOUTHAMPTON, ENGLAND - MARCH 18: Antonio Conte, Manager

Former Juventus and Inter boss Antonio Conte has officially left Tottenham Hotspur.

The English side announced earlier this evening they’ve reached an agreement with the Italian technician to terminate his contract with the club by mutual consent.

“We can announce that Head Coach Antonio Conte has left the Club by mutual agreement. We achieved Champions League qualification in Antonio’s first season at the club,” they wrote.

“We thank Antonio for his contribution and wish him well for the future.”

Conte exits just one week after his public outburst following the team’s 3-3 draw against Southampton. He hit out at the club’s ownership at full time and blamed them for the lack of historical success.

“They (Spurs ownership) are used to not playing for important things,” Conte said. “They don’t want to play under pressure. They don’t want to play under stress.

“Tottenham’s story is this. Twenty years there is the owner and they never won something. Why? The fault is only for the club, or for every manager that stay here. I have seen the managers that Tottenham had on the bench.

“It is time to change this situation if Tottenham want to change. If they want to continue in this way, they can change the manager, a lot of managers, but the situation cannot change. Believe me.”
