BBC pundit doesn’t think 51-year-old manager linked with Tottenham will want job
Despite transfer speculation, BBC pundit Jermaine has claimed he doesn’t think Antonio Conte will want to join Tottenham.
Conte, 51, is an available manager after leaving Inter Milan by mutual consent this week.
The Italian boss secured the Serie A title before his exit, which means he’s now won five league titles as a manager.
As well as his Inter triumph, he won the Premier League with Chelsea back in 2017, plus three Serie A titles earlier in his career with Juventus.
A report in Corriere dello Sport this month claims that Spurs chairman Daniel Levy wants to appoint Conte as the next manager at the north London club.
They are still on the search for a full-time successor to Jose Mourinho, and Ryan Mason’s time as interim boss is now up.
Jenas can’t see Conte ending up at his former club Spurs though:
“I think he will feel that the Tottenham position is below him personally, having already been in the Premier League with Chelsea. I think Real Madrid is the position he is looking for,” Jenas told BBC Radio 5 Live Sport.
Conte appointment would be winning the lottery for Tottenham
Pep Guardiola and Jurgen Klopp are the names often thrown about as the best managers in the world. However, Conte really should be in the conversation among the elite.
The way he’s built a winning side in the past couple of years is to be admired. On top of that, he showed he can go abroad like he did with Chelsea and be successful.
Spurs need to hurry up with whoever they appoint. Their supporters don’t want to be waiting around frustrated for too long like Celtic fans.
