Antonio Conte, Tottenham’s new coach

Tottenham confirmed this Tuesday the hiring of Antonio Conte as his new coach until 2023. The Italian coach, whose last job was at Inter Milan, returns to the Premier League, where he made champion Chelsea in 2017.

Conte, 52, replaces Nuno Espirito Santo at the head of the ‘Spurs’, after the Portuguese was fired after only 17 games in command of the team.

Tottenham confirmed that there is an option to extend Conte’s contract if both parties so wish. “I am very happy to be training again and to do so at a Premier League club that has the ambition to be a protagonist again, “Conte said.

The Italian rejected Tottenham last summer, when the London team was looking for a coach after the dismissal of José Mourinho. Conte saw no future in a project that was close to losing Harry Kane, his best player, who had asked to leave.

The technician came from two years in the Inter de Milan, from which he came out on his own after winning the last Serie A. In addition to the Premier League, Conte won the FA Cup in 2018, before being sacked. In Tottenham there is a team eighth in the Premier table, in the quarterfinals of the League Cup and in the group stage of the Conference League.
