It was in the air, it is now official. Antonio Conte is no longer the coach of Tottenham. The Italian technician was dismissed this Sunday evening by the club’s administration. Cristian Stellini will take over as interim coach.
Tottenham have decided on Antonio Conte. His recent media outburst about the club and the players did him no favors. He will not go to the end of his contract which expires next summer. He will leave the club immediately and will be replaced by his compatriot Cristian Stellini. “We can announce that the head coach Antonio Conte has left the club by mutual agreement. We obtained the qualification for the Champions League in Antonio’s first season at the Club. We thank Antonio for his contribution and wish him good luck for the future. Cristian Stellini will take over the team as interim head coach for the rest of the season, with Ryan Mason as assistant head coach,” reads the club’s release.
