Opinion: Antonio Conte can have a good short-term effect for Tottenham after Inter exit

Antonio Conte has left Internazionale just weeks after winning the Serie A title with the Italian giants.

The news comes amid links with the vacant manager’s role at Tottenham Hotspur.

Claims have emerged over the circumstances regarding the manager’s departure from the San Siro with The Telegraph claiming that there was a dispute over the club’s transfer policy.

The move will be music to the ears of those associated with Spurs. The Lilywhites have been linked with a move for Conte as La Stampa claims the north London outfit have offered him an enormous contract.

The impact he’s had on various clubs including Juventus, Chelsea and the Nerazzurri has been staggering.

His first title win with the Old Lady was the first time the club had won the league since their promotion back up to Serie A. The outfit had been relegated down to Serie B after the match-fixing scandal with the 51-year-old restoring their glory days.

Meanwhile, there are no words to describe his achievement in west London. With Chelsea having finished in 10th place the season before, Conte managed to take, almost, the same side and win the Premier League title.

He continued his phenomenal feat of winning titles against the odd this season, lifting the title with Inter. It ended Juventus’ long domination of the top-flight and the side’s long wait for a league championship.

Conte’s, described as ‘hungry’, ability to stabilise a club for in the short-term is quite staggering and for that fact, makes him one of the best coaches in the world.

His trophy-laden last few seasons have been quite stunning and is a display of the type of person Tottenham need to hire to end their long wait for a major honour.

However, more importantly than just winning titles, Conte’s ability to win without making wholesale changes is an attractive prospect for a Tottenham squad which needs an overhaul.
