3. Antonio Conte isn’t cut out for a rebuild
The Italian gaffer is not cut out to rebuild a team in what can only be described as a long-term project. He is a manager of immediacy, somebody who, in not too dissimilar fashion to Jose Mourinho, has a relatively short shelf life at a club. Take for example his last two roles at Chelsea and Inter. Both were winning tenures, but both were also short-lived.
He was at Chelsea from 2016 to 2018 and Inter Milan from 2019 to 2021. While that’s not too abnormal in the modern era, Spurs require a stabilizing force for the long term. Tottenham want a manager they have every faith will be around in four or five years. For all of Conte’s desirable attributes and characteristics, there’s a high likelihood he wouldn’t have provided the long-term stability Spurs are in desperate need of.
