Conte unveiled as Tottenham head coach
Antonio Conte has been officially unveiled as Tottenham’s new head coach.
The Italian replaces Nuno Espirito Santo, who was sacked after just four months in charge following their defeat to Manchester United.
Conte has won titles with Chelsea, Juventus and Inter Milan, and he’s signed an 18 month deal until the summer of 2023with the north London side, with the option to extend.
In a statement on Tottenham’s website, Conte said:
“I am extremely happy to return to coaching, and to do so at a Premier League club that has the ambition to be a protagonist again.
“Tottenham Hotspur has state-of-the-art facilities and one of the best stadiums in the world.
“I can’t wait to start working to convey to the team and the fans the passion, mentality and determination that have always distinguished me, as a player and as a coach.
“Last summer our union did not happen because the end of my relationship with Inter was still too recent and emotionally too involved with the end of the season, so I felt that it wasn’t yet the right time to return to coaching.
“But the contagious enthusiasm and determination of Daniel Levy in wanting to entrust me with this task had already hit the mark. Now that the opportunity has returned, I have chosen to take it with great conviction.”
