Tottenham Hotspur manager Antonio Conte will part ways with the club upon the expiration of his contract at the season’s end. According to Italian journalist and transfer specialist Gianluca Di Marzio, the London club is  yet to approach him for a contract renewal and it looks likely that he will depart.

“The news I can tell you with certainty is that Antonio Conte will leave Tottenham at the end of the season. There was no spark, his contract is expiring, and the club has not asked him for a renewal. The club does not like the frequent jibes. Conte wants players to win, while the club prefers to trade, the feeling with the club has not clicked. His family, among other things, has remained in Italy,” Mr Marzio tweeted.

Earlier, the Italian manager, who joined the Premier League club back in November 2021, was questioned about his future with the club. “For sure under the personal aspect it is a difficult season for what happened but now this situation is not important. This situation is my personal situation and there will be time to make the right decision for me, for the future, for my family, but this situation does not affect the work and does not affect the team. I’m really focused. About this aspect I’m an animal because I’m really focused,” he said.

He further claimed that he is working really hard to improve the team and the club with his vision, idea and suggestions. “I am totally into the new situation and know that my task is to be part of this process and try to, with a team in transition, to start to become solid and to build a solid foundation and try to build a team ready to fight to win,” Conte added.

Notably, Conte led Tottenham to a top-four finish and Champions League qualification in 2021-22 before bringing in a number of new players in the most recent transfer window. Tottenham Hotspur is currently fifth in the Premier League table.
