Why Tottenham players fear Antonio Conte could quit job

Why Tottenham players fear Antonio Conte could quit job

Tottenham under Antonio Conte

Antonio Conte took charge of Tottenham back in November, and has since improved the club’s form somewhat, at least in the Premier League.

In the English top-flight, Conte has taken charge of eight games so far, remaining unbeaten throughout, and most recently seeing off Watford by a goal to nil last Saturday, thanks to a Davinson Sanchez winner in the 96th minute.

This has seen Spurs move up to 6th in the Premier League table, with the Lilywhites boasting at least two games in hand on the two teams above them – fixtures which, if they win, could see the capital club climb to 4th in the table.

Elsewhere, though, Tottenham’s fringe stars struggled to see off League One outfit Morecambe in the 3rd round of the FA Cup, before Conte and co. were beaten 3-0 by Chelsea over two legs of their League Cup semi-final.

Could Conte quit Tottenham?

So, it is fairly obvious that Conte needs to be backed in the market to improve his squad.

A backup striker/competition for Harry Kane looks a must, whilst a new right-wing-back is probably needed too given the subpar showings of Emerson Royal and Matt Doherty of late.

Conte did confirm earlier this week that he had met with Daniel Levy and Fabio Paratici to discuss transfers.

But, as we near the halfway point of the winter window, Spurs are yet to sign anyone.

In turn, now, the Daily Mail are reporting that Tottenham’s players fear Conte could quit the club next month if he is not backed with new signings in the January transfer window:
