Tottenham needs to back Coach Conte
After firing the most popular coach at the club in almost 20 years and replacing him with the most divisive coach in team history, lucking into Antonio Conte – after the failure of Nuno Espirito Santo – was a brilliant stroke. Finally, the team had a coach that both the players and the fans could all get around and back.
This was very true as the new coach bounce occurred and Spurs climbed up the table. However, through Covid and injuries, the true strength or lack thereof in the team has become evident. Now, with Tottenham sitting as one of a half-dozen teams vying for the coveted final Champions League position in the Premier League, the club has to step up.
We already know that Conte has left clubs in the past for not getting the backing of players he wanted, why would Tottenham be any different? I’m in no way suggesting that Conte leaves before the end of the season – even without signings. However, if anyone thinks Conte won’t walk the day after the season ends if he does not believe he is going to get the backing he needs is fooling themselves.
Antonio Conte is not the kind of man to suffer fools and if he sees Daniel Levy and Spurs leadership are not serious about winning, he is going to walk in the summer. This would put Tottenham back at square one and continue the sad downward spiral that has been going on for several years now.
