Conte leaves Tottenham ‘by mutual agreement’

Antonio Conte has left Tottenham “by mutual agreement” after 16 months in charge, the Premier League club announced on Sunday, reports AFP. His departure comes after the Italian’s extraordinary post-match rant

following a 3-3 draw at Southampton on March 18, a game in which they blew a 3-1 lead. The 53-year-old, who took over in November 2021, will be replaced by his assistant Cristian Stellini until the end of the season. “We can announce that head coach Antonio Conte has left the club by mutual agreement,” a club statement read. “Cristian Stellini will take the team as acting head coach for the remainder of the season, along with Ryan Mason as assistant head coach.” Conte leaves with Spurs fourth in the Premier League, but only two points above fifth-placed Newcastle, who have two games in hand on the London side in the race for

Champions League qualification. Conte won league titles in his previous three spells in club management at Juventus, Chelsea and Inter Milan, but was unable to end Tottenham’s 15-year wait to win a major trophy. His contract was due to expire at the end of the season.
