Gabriel Agbonlahor is now convinced Tottenham man is going to leave at the end of the season
They were put to the sword by the Premier League’s bottom side Nottingham Forest, falling to a 2-0 defeat last night.
Spurs have now gone behind in each of their last their last seven matches.
Their slow starts are now becoming a worrying trend in each of their games.
However, in their last two matches, they’ve not been able to do enough in the second-half to salvage a result.
Agbonlahor now thinks that manager Antonio Conte will leave Spurs at the end of the season.
He believes that they’ll once again miss out on winning any silverware and as a result the Italian will go.
Conte has never been a manager who has been tied to a long-term project.
Conte didn’t stick around for too much longer after hitting that milestone either.
If Spurs can’t provide him the platform to deliver that success, Conte may leave at the end of the season, according to Agbonlahor.
Conte will leave at the end of the season – Agbonlahor
“Spurs fans would take Conte playing this sort of football if he’s going to guarantee them a trophy,” Agbonlahor said.
“But, they’re not going to win the Premier League, they’re not going to win the Champions League, the FA Cup is much harder to win than the Carabao Cup.
“Last night was the perfect chance to get past a Forest team who made a lot of changes, they went strong Spurs, and they couldn’t get it done.
“People will say, ‘why do you keep calling Spurs Spursy?’, because last night was a perfect example of a Spursy performance.
“I don’t think he (Conte) will be there next season.
“I don’t think they’ll win anything this season, and I think it’s a big discussion for Harry Kane.
“Surely he’s going to be thinking, ‘I’m not going to win anything here, I need to go somewhere where I’m going to win trophies.’”
As Agbonlahor said, Spurs are unlikely to challenge for the Premier League this season, although this was always an unrealistic ambition.
The FA Cup and Champions League are both still attainable, although Conte’s record in Europe’s top competition isn’t great.
Agbonlahor isn’t the only pundit who thinks Conte could leave at the end of the season.
The Italian’s ambitions must be met by the club in order to keep him in north London.
