Tottenham sacked their manager this week after a poor run of form, and Antonio Conte is being tipped to replace him. The Italian manager has been out of work since leaving Chelsea at the end of last season, but there are rumours that he would be interested in taking charge of Spurs. Below are three reasons why he could be an excellent choice for Tottenham’s next boss!
Conte is a very experienced manager and has gained his experience with some of the biggest clubs in world football. He’s had two spells as head coach at Juventus, where he won three Serie A titles, and one at Chelsea where he won the Premier League title in his first season. This tactical nous would be essential for a team like Spurs, who have the ability to play against teams with more possession and win. Conte has also proved himself an excellent tactical manager during his time at Chelsea. Despite being known as a strict disciplinarian, he was able to get everyone involved in his side playing great attacking football without sacrificing their defensive stability. Because of his success in the Premier League, Conte would be a very attractive option.
One of Spurs’ biggest problems this season has been their lack of goals. With Harry Kane struggling to get back into form, there are no consistent goal scorers in the team. As well as being able to teach Tottenham how to win games without scoring many goals, Conte can also improve the players he inherits. In his first season as Chelsea manager, Conte turned Victor Moses from a nobody into an international superstar. If he can do that with someone like Moses, then imagine what he could do with Dele Alli!
Conte’s experience in the Premier League offers Spurs the opportunity to extend their stay in the competition. It would also mean no more Europa League football, which is not ideal when you consider Spurs’ lack of depth in their squad. Spending less time in European competitions would increase Tottenham’s chances of finishing in the top 4 next season and ensure that they are still challenging for trophies at the end of the campaign. It could be exactly what Pochettino’s side needs to win silverware again!
These are just a few of the reasons why Conte could be a great choice for Spurs. The Italian manager is already being linked with the job, so we may have an answer sooner rather than later.

It’s very likely that Conte would be available to take over almost right away. The lack of European football at the club potentially means that Spurs will have more time to prepare for their games, which is always welcome. However, Pochettino reportedly has “no intention” of leaving his job anytime soon. For now, it seems as though Conte’s appointment is not an immediate possibility.
