If Tottenham appoint Conte, would Spurs fans be happy?

Spurs fans will be very happy to get Conte. The ex-Chelsea manager’s is on the rise and if he gets money to spend by Daniel Levy – a big if – then he can really take Spurs forward.

But the romance of Pochettino returning to Tottenham will have really excited supporters. Many disagreed with his departure back in 2019, and they would love to have him back in the helm. Conte is a brilliant appointment, but Pochettino is in Tottenham hearts.
